How Do You Keep Dust Down in the house?

Posted on 4/25/10 at 11:04 PM By jalane slater | 16 Replies

We bought a newbissell power Tubo Vacumm cleaner today. So we will see if it keeps the dust down. Do you have any tips?

Vaccum every other day and "wet" dust with a damp cloth. Murphys oil soap on the good furniture about every 3 months. Vaccum the cloth furniture once a week. Remember we are shedding skin all the time so the furniture is a must to vaccum!

I seriously vacuum whatever dust I can first and usually that's enough that I don't have to use dusting products every week.

Its difficult for me too. I have to dust a lot & look for products that deflect dust such as 'Pledge'

I wife off surfaces frequently, even if there are no signs of visible dust. I also suggest using some Murphy Oil on your wooden cabinets, the protection from that product usually resists dust.

I have the Bissell Powerforce Turbo and it helps to change the filters very often.  This was getting expensive when I was buying new filters every time, but now I hold onto two pairs for a few months at a time.  I use one set of filters for about a week, wash them and put in my back-up.  By the time I need to wash the new filters, the first set is dry.  I also get to change my filters often enough to suck up the maximum amount of debris.

It is hard to keep dust down in my home since we use wood heat only and live in the country where plenty of dirt is tracked onto our carpeted floors. I know a thorough daily vacuuming and a monthly steam cleaning would do the trick.

This may not help you, but we have ALOT of dust in our house. It seems like Im constantly dustng. However we have been doing alot of remodeling lately so I assumed it was from that. The other day we had a contractor come in to look at the bathroom and as we were walking through the living room he told me that if I got new baseboards I would have less dust. Im not sure what baseboards have to do with dust, but Im gonna try it. LOL.
