Dust is a wide variety of organic and inorganic particles that can collect in your home. A person sheds 30,000 to 40,000 old skin cells every day.

Inorganic dust consist of pet dander, rodent waste, paint particles, pollen, bacteria, viruses, plant, insect parts, heavy metals, cigarette smoke and flame retardants. Some of which are toxic and can cause lung disease. Dust mites are a microscopic living organisms who feed off the skin cells. Dust mites are found in places like your mattresses, bedding and sofas. Places where the most traffic is has the most skin cells. Dust can cause some people to develop an allergy. An allergy is when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance called an allergen.

Bacteria by-products in household dust are also known to trigger asthma. On windy days or during cleaning the exposure is high. The probability of having a asthma attack is higher.

Dusting from top to bottom. So when the dust falls you don’t have to reclean. Your dusting cloth should be damp not dry, be sure to use a dry swifter to knock dust and cobwebs. A dry cleaning cloth can scratch wooden surfaces. By dragging the dust along the surface over time. To be successful at capturing dust use a soft microfiber cloth. Dampened with warm water. The moisture pulls dust away rather than spreading it to a different spot. Another effective option, is to use furniture polish with a microfiber cloth. Which lubricates wood, lifts dust and leaves surfaces gleaming with a single wipe.
