“An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it.”
Do you struggle with all the “ideas” that form on your furniture at an astounding rate? Yes, we are talking about dust. You know, that stuff that magically appears even if you are rarely at home! If you don’t have a talent for dusting and, quite frankly, despise doing it, there are a few things that you can do.
- Check your HVAC filters- Excess dust can be a sign that the filters are clogged and it is far past the time they should have been changed. Ideally, you should change the filters every month and even more frequently if you live in a dusty climate or on a dirt road.
- Hire a cleaning company- If you hate the rest of cleaning as much as you hate dusting, the solution is to turn it all over to a residential cleaning professional. Life is too short to spend time on things you really hate to do, so go do things you enjoy and leave the dusting to someone else.
- Get rid of knickknacks– The more things you have, the longer dusting takes. A few flat surfaces, such as counters, dressers, bookcases, and tables might not take long to dust, but when you factor in collectibles, books, knickknacks, and décor items, the task can become overwhelming. Decluttering can be good for the soul, too!
- Keep windows closed- The tradeoff for fresh air is more dust in your home. This might not be an option for someone that gets a lot of joy by having the windows open, but it is a way to cut down on dusting if that is your objective.
Since it seems like at least the last two aren’t something most people would want to do, the best option to avoid dusting is to turn it over to a dusting service.
