10 Ways to help keep your home dust free.

 10 ways to help keep your home dust free.

Many people suffer from dust allergies and asthma which can get worse if your house is dusty. It’s very important to keep your house free from dust mites and allergen. Here are a few ways you can try to keep your house:

 1. Regularly dust all surface, ornaments and make sure you move furniture and dust under and around and also dust the skirting boards.

 2. Make a habit of regularly vacuuming all soft furnishing like sofas, cushions and rugs.


3. Steam clean all furnishings.

4. Dust all light fittings and lampshades.

5. Dust all alcoves, corniches and behind and above curtain rails.

6. Regularly dust all curtains and blinds.

7. Steam clean all curtains regularly if you are not able to take them down often.

8. Vacuum your mattress and pillows and wash your duvet and bed sheets regularly.

9. Dust behind radiators and pipes where you get hidden areas of dust accumulation.

10. The one place people don’t realise is how much dust carpets trap in their pile. Regular vacuuming, wet carpet cleaning for embedded dust once every few months will help to reduce the problem.

For people who are severely asthmatic, it’s a good idea to do away with carpets all together by replacing them with engineered wood flooring.Wooden flooring is easier to keep clean and dust free.


Regular hoovering and mopping wooden floors prevents a build-up of dust particles that normally embed in carpet pile. For this reason alone replacing carpets with wooden flooring is the perfect choice for people who have dust allergies or are asthmatic. 

Engineered wood flooring is great for areas affected by humidity and temperature too because it has the ability to expand so there is less risk of damage and warping to the floor. This is due to the cross ply contraction, meaning that each layer of ply is staked with the grain running in the opposite direction. The plies are laminated together, which helps to prevent expansion and contraction.The floors are durable and easy to keep clean and dust free, especially if you have kids and pets.
