6 Ways To Reduce Dust In Your Vero Beach Home
Not everyone has a dust problem in Vero Beach but some do. Constantly fighting the dust gets old really fast. If you are finding yourself cleaning and dusting all the time, there are ways you can minimize the problem.
First, understand that there are different things that can cause dust problems. So you’ll need to investigate why there’s a problem and then find out what to do about it. Here are a few steps you can take to deal with the dust problem.
Do You Have Pets?
Homes with pets are more prone to develop a dust problem. If you have cats, it’s even worse because they preen themselves a lot. Before you know it, there are fur balls under the bed, along the edges of the hallway, and floating cat hair in the air. Along with the fur, there’s dander. Did you know that dust is mostly dander (dead skin cells)?
There are two things you can do about the dust. One, install an air cleaner system for the whole home. Two, brush your pets outside regularly.
Check The Windows & Doors For Cracks
Dust and pollution from the outdoors will find its way in through door and window cracks. If you live near a busy street, the vehicle traffic will throw up dust and pollution. If it gets inside, it will make your home dusty and dirty very quickly. Weatherproof the windows and the doors to help reduce the dust problem.
Use a vacuum with a good filter on the carpeting and hard floors of your house. Do this regularly to reduce the dust in your house. Make sure to use a vacuum that doesn’t throw the dust back out into the air.
Check The Ductwork For Leaks
Duct leaks let the dust and dirt in the attic into the house through the vents. As your HVAC system blows air through the ducts, all the attic dust gets blown into the house. Sealing the duct joints and any holes will greatly improve the dust problems in your home.
Clean Dirty Ducts
Not only should you clean the duct system, but the HVAC system, the dryer vent, and any exhaust vents too. The dust buildup inside will only circulate around the house over and over again until you get rid of it. When you call a pro like Star Quality Air Conditioning, Inc. to clean your ducts, they will also clean the HVAC system. We offer dryer vent cleaning and exhaust vent cleaning too, but not all duct cleaning companies do.
Install A Whole-Home Air Cleaner
Rather than counting on a portable that only cleans one room at a time, a whole-home air cleaner keeps the air filtered constantly in every room. The HEPA air filtration systems will trap small particles down to the size of bacteria and viruses. Installing any type of whole-home air cleaner will make a big impact on how much dusting you have to do.
