House cleaning has always been a difficult task. Most of us do not have enough time to clean the entire house regularly due to our busy lifestyle. However, if left as such, this could trigger unnecessary allergies and eventually lead to serious health-related problems.
The most important factor that leads to allergies is dust accumulation. Therefore, it is necessary to keep our homes dust-free. It is always better to hire house cleaning professionals for the task, but if you had the time, below are a few easy tips to try and remove dust effectively from your house.
Using a wet cloth would tackle the dingy spots on your baseboard. All you need to do is to apply water or any all-purpose cleaning solution to a soft cloth and run it over the baseboard to remove the debris away.
Put teddy bears, beanbag critters, etc., in a large plastic bag and put a cup of baking soda into it. After securing the top, take the bag outside and shake it well. The baking soda and static will draw out dust and soil from the soft toys. When done, shake off the clumps of soda and clean it using a vacuum cleaner.
Use a natural bristle paintbrush or a makeup brush to remove the dust trapped in tiny nooks and corners and the intricate carvings of the cabinets. After that is done, wipe off the cabinet surface with a clean microfiber cloth.
The most effective tool that can be used to clean the walls is a vacuum cleaner. Modern vacuum cleaner models come with multiple attachments, and using them can capture dust without making a mess. Just remember to work from top to down when you are at it.
From televisions to stereos and printers, all electronic devices accumulate a lot of dust, which is why they are considered to be notorious dust magnets. Yet to clean them is an easy task; just unplug the equipment, and swipe them with a microfiber cloth to remove dust efficiently.
Place a newspaper or a cloth under the fan. After turning off the power source, use a damp paper towel to wipe off the greasy dust from the ceiling fan’s casing. You can also use a soft bristle brush to loosen dust on the blades.
Use an electrostatic mop or soft brush vacuum attachment to remove dust from the air vents, and then wipe the surface with a dampened microfiber cloth. Rinse the removable and washable air filters in hot soapy water and air-dry them before reinstalling.
