When it comes to cleaning homes, whether it’s a professional house cleaner from Maid to Shine or the owner of the home itself, dusting is possibly the easiest cleaning task. It doesn’t take a great deal of physical exertion, and it’s a quick task to accomplish—and to accomplish well! But just because it’s easy to dust thoroughly, it doesn’t mean it’s not an important facet to cleaning. Dusting thoroughly and frequently has a myriad of benefits for your home.
Dust is comprised of many different elements: there are soil particles, dead skin, elements from the local environment, fibers, pet dander, dead bits of insects, fungi, mold, bacteria, pollen, and dust mites. It’s a revolting conglomeration of particles. So, it’s no wonder that regular removal of dust from your home is beneficial! Whether or not you clean yourself or you hire the best, local maid service around, dusting is important to your health and the health of your family. For starters, dusting provides a cleaner air environment. But by dusting regularly, by wiping objects and vacuuming to pick up the fallen particles, you ensure that the air quality in your home improves dramatically. Why is this? The removal of dust reduces allergens, and it can also reduce the allergen symptoms. You and your family will be able to breathe easier. It removes not only dust, but it also removes dust mites (microscopic arthropods that feast on dead skin). Dusting regularly presents not only a more breathable environment, but it also gives your house a fresher, cleaner look. Objects look new, and buildup and grime are less likely to start forming on your every day items. Who doesn’t want such a breathable, clean, and fresh home for themselves and their families? All of the best maid services will know how important dusting like this is! Every professional home cleaning should include a careful dusting of the entire house.
If you hire the best cleaning service, then dusting your home will be a cinch, but even if you do your own dusting, it’s an easy chore to tackle. But what should be included in the regular dusting of your home? Next week, in part two of this series, we’ll look at what should be included in your regular, home cleaning and dusting.
