How To Dust Your Home Like An Experienced Cleaner

When a professional cleaner tidies up a home, our own cleaning attempts are quickly put to shame. Professionals get in all the nooks and crannies that we overlook. If you aren’t in the market for hiring a regular cleaner but would rather get the job done yourself, read on.

The secret that makes all the difference? Dust management. These nearly invisible particles accumulate quickly and they do not discriminate. A dusty home is unpleasant, but certainly not unmanageable.

Why does my room get dusty so quickly?

Dust is a combination of tiny particles from the skin, hair, and other types of waste. Wherever there are people and/or pets, there will be some dust.
Here are some more tips to help you dust your house like an experienced cleaner.

What is the best thing to use for dusting?

If you want to do this properly instead of simply moving the dust around in your room, use a microfibre cloth. It’s a square piece of genius, because it can take on a lot of dust without releasing it into the air. The small fibres will not scratch or damage any furniture and you can use the cloth as is.

If it’s been a while since you’ve dusted, wear a filter mask to prevent inhaling the dust and causing a bout of sneezing or allergic reactions.

What is the best way to dust?

From top to bottom, always. Start by dusting the top corners of the room, then the curtain rails, then the wall corners of a room. If you have bookshelves, dust from the top down.
Next, you will want to clear all the surfaces that need dusting and move out the objects that need dusting. Use a microfibre or slightly damp cloth and wipe down.

Get out the vacuum cleaner and start vacuuming all the surfaces and spaces you cleared. Move the furniture around so you can get in under tables, chairs and other furniture. Use a small attachment to get into the hard-to-reach spots.

How do I control the dust in my house?

There is no way to keep your house completely dust-free, but there are ways to manage it.

  • Change your bedding once a week or every second week to keep dust mites away. You can also get an allergen-proof mattress cover.
  • Keep your closet tidy, because clothes shed loads of fibre. Use plastic containers to store your clothes.
  • Keep floors clear of clutter.
  • Avoid carpeting wherever possible.
  • Dust rugs, pillows and other similar articles outside.
  • Don’t use a feather duster.
  • Air purifiers can help filter dust particles.

How often should I dust everything?

Regular light dusting means less heavy dusting. Dust your home in all the easy-to-reach places once a week, and the hard-to-reach areas like ceilings, door frames, and high shelves at least every two weeks or once a month.

It’s nice to do the cleaning on your own once in a while. However, there are some instances that it’s so hard to squeeze in with a busy schedule. If you need help from a professional house cleaner, PerfectClean services can definitely assist you.

What is the best way to clean a computer?

Computers are magnets for dust, lint and sticky fingers but to clean a dirty screen and keyboard without causing damage you need to use the right products and techniques.

To do the job you’ll need a lint-free cloth, a gentle cleaning product and a can of compressed air.

The first step is to turn off the computer and disconnect all the power sources, removing any external plug-ins like USBs, and for laptops remove the battery too if possible.

To clean the monitor, dampen one section of a lint-free cloth and gently wipe the screen with the damp part then the dry part. Use the same technique to clean the housing.

The best way to get gunk out from between the keyboard keys is to use compressed air then a cleaning solution of half isopropyl alcohol and half water, applied using cotton buds. You can pry the keys off some keyboards for easier cleaning but not laptops or wireless keyboards.

For Apple Hardware using any type of sprays, solvents or abrasives is not recommended. Instead, gently go over keyboards, trackpads and mouses with a disinfectant wipe, then dry using a clean lint-free cloth.
To use the cotton-bud technique, dampen buds with the disinfectant wipes then use on the keyboard.

Tip: Ensure that the wipes don’t contain bleach and are only damp, not dripping wet. After cleaning, wipe the keyboard with a dry lint-free cloth to remove any residue.
