How can I keep dust at bay using natural cleaning products?

Dust can be a nightmare to keep on top of, it’s constantly around settling on every possible surface. Sometimes it even gets into places that we wouldn’t expect it to get. Keeping on top of dusting isn’t just great for the look of your home, it also helps with your overall health too. Inhaling dust particles can cause respiratory issues especially for those that suffer with asthma or allergies. Dust actually consists of dead skin particles, pet dander,  hair and minute fibre’s. You will also find that wherever there is dust there is also dust mites. Not something that you want living in your home with you. 

Don’t panic though the Premium Clean can help you keep dust at bay and help keep your property smelling fresh and looking clean all the time. So how can you prevent dust from building up in your property? 

You can start by vacuuming regularly, this includes vacuuming of the curtains, upholstery and carpets. Vacuuming is the most effective as it sucks the dust particles up rather than just pushing them around the room, dustpan and brush, brooms and mopping can just push the particles around unless you invest in a brush or mop containing microfibres. Microfibres help by trapping the dust particles instead of spreading them. Another thing that can help reduce the dust is regularly grooming any pets that reside in the property. Regular grooming will remove loose hairs and dander keeping them from shedding around the property. Vacuuming carpet areas will help to remove dust particles from the carpet fibre’s. Keeping bedding changed regularly will help remove first and dust also removing dust mites in the process.

 Dusting surfaces dialling will help control dust build up. To do this you don’t need to use harsh chemicals. We can suggest natural cleaning products that you can find around your home. All the equipment and ingredients you will need is:

  • White vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Clean microfibre cloths
  • Water

You’re now ready to dust your surfaces. This mixture is safe to use on all kinds of surfaces leaving them squeaky clean and shining. You can add some natural essential oils into the mixture if you require a specific scent, these can range from lavender that can give a relaxing, calming scent to a lemon leaving you with a zingy, refreshing scent. This is all down to personal preference and is an optional addition. As long as the ingredients are all natural based you are fully protected from harmful fumes and cleaning in an eco friendly manner. Helping to keep the environment, your whole family and yourself  safe while you clean. These cleaning methods are safe to be used around children, allergy sufferers and even pets. A list additional tip is when reaching for that air freshener at the end of a cleaning day don’t use shop bought chemical filled air fresheners, simply boil up some lemon in a pan of water this will emit a beautiful fresh clean aroma in the entire property.
