Do you wipe down things like lights and blinds, or just dust them?

Posted on 4/13/11 at 1:56 PM By Jenn | 7 Replies

<FONT face=Calibri>I cannot get over the amount of people who just dust their house, never wipe anything down with any cleaners, or even a damp cloth! My son and his father both have allergies to dust and although it is a lot of work, I make sure my house is a dust free zone to the best of my abilities. We just moved into a new apartment and I pulled about a half of an inch, of black dust off the blades on the ceiling fans in the apartment, (which are located in every room). I am glad the first thing I did was check the fans and blinds in the house because they were the worst things that needed cleaning, and it took a lot of time to get it all done.</FONT>

I wipe them down with a damp cloth once a week and clean them once a month. The light fixtures and ceiling fans are taken apart every 3 to 4 months and completely cleaned, the blades get wiped down every couple of weeks.

dusting is just as good

I also wipe down fan blades, mini-blinds and even chair rails and baseboards.  I have a whole house fan that sucks dust in with the cooler air.  It is a never ending battle.  Too bad I can't use my Bissell Steam Mop for those chores.

Why on earth is the font I used placed in my post? It is probably because I copied and pasted it from Word, oh well. Sorry for the random font information at the beginning and end of the post. I told my mom about the layers of dust on the blinds and ceiling fans and she said she knows a lot of people who do not bother with things like that also and she lives in California, while I am locaated in Connecticut.
