Someone’s Got to Get all the Dust

Benjamin Franklin once said that there are only two things that are certain in life: death and taxes. We’d like to add another item to that list: dust!

Doesn’t it seem like, no matter how hard you try to stay on top of it, dust always seems to just keep piling up? It’s enough to make anyone go crazy!

It wouldn’t be such a problem if the stuff would just lay there, right? But, of course, it doesn’t. Dust is annoying. It covers up the beautiful surfaces in your home. It’s ugly. It makes you and your houseguests sneeze and itch.

Long story short, dust is bad news. And there are a lot of things to think about if you want to bust that dust for good. Here are three questions to ask yourself if you’re having trouble with dust around the house:

Am I getting all of the dust?

Dust is a little bit like a contagious disease. It spreads fast and far – and you’ll find it in places you never expected! Dust can show up anywhere. So, if you want to stop it, you’ve got to find it everywhere.

That includes:

  • Walls
  • Baseboards and crown molding
  • Inside cabinets
  • Electronic devices
  • Ceiling fans
  • Radiators
  • Behind appliances
  • Windowsills
  • Furniture
  • Ceiling and floor vents

When a dusty spot is left untreated for too long, the layers of dust can grow heavy and thick. Often, it’s this hidden dust, and the stuff blown into the air by your vents, that can make people feel sick.

So ask yourself: Are you getting all of the dust? Or just the obvious dust? This can make a big difference for the look and feel of your home!

Sweeping Dimensions can help locate and clean all of the dust hidden throughout your home. We know where dust bunnies like to hide, and we know just how to chase them out with the proper cleaning techniques for every surface.

Do I have the right materials?

There are lots of products on the market that promise to help you clean dust. Some of these tools work, and others don’t.

For example, some “old school” feather dusters and dry cloths just brush off dust into the air. They don’t trap and clear dust, they just move it around, and let it settle somewhere new! That’s no help to anyone, is it? Other products can help you get dust, but they’ll leave behind greasy residue. And this leftover stuff may just help trap more dust in the future! Who needs that?

Then there’s the other things you may need to get all of the dust from around your house, such as:

  • Ladders and step stools
  • Vacuums with attachments
  • Long-handled mops and brushes

You could get pay big bucks for all of these things, and still worry if you’re getting all the dust. Or you could let Sweeping Dimensions put your mind at ease!

We’ll use a combination of dry and wet cloth techniques to make sure that we get all of the dust, every time. We won’t just move it around – we’ll get that nasty stuff out of your home. And we’ve already got all the right tools for the job, including our suite of eco-friendly green cleaning products!

Do I have the time to deal with dust on my own?

Proper dusting can take a lot of time and energy. Homecare website The Spruce recommends dusting at least once a week, and maybe even twice a week or more if you’ve got any allergy sufferers in the house.

And every dusting session might take a while. Think about all of those attention spots we talked about earlier!

Wouldn’t you rather spend your precious time doing something else?

Think about it! Would you rather come home from work and cook a nice meal with your family… or break out the water and cloths for a dusting session?

Over the weekend, would you rather play games, go outside, and watch TV… or use your free time for chores?
