Dusty Place? Tips For Quick Cleaning

winterDust is one of the most common allergens in either a household or business. Whether you run a business either in your own home or in an office space uptown, it pays to know how best to keep up with the chore of dusting, just so you and your staff (if you have employees) won’t have to constantly contend with sneezing and itchy eyes.

Here are some tips to make dusting go quickly so you can get back to running your business:

1) Use a Humid Cloth. This is probably one of the best ways to wipe off dust from hard surfaces without it flying around. All you have to do is lightly mist with a spray bottle and run it over the hard surfaces. This method keeps the dust particles from flying around and settling elsewhere, let alone flying into your face.

Also, don’t forget to clean any removable and rewashable air conditioning filters with warm soapy water, then leave out to air dry before reinstalling.

4) Flip On Your MP3 player or Smartphone & Play Music. Believe it or not, listening to music, especially fast-paced beats, will push you forward faster, help you burn calories and help you enjoy the chore a bit more.

5) Divvy Up Dusting Tasks. If you have a few employees to help you out, divvy up the specific dusting tasks (such as giving ceiling vents and high shelves to tall people) and that way you all can get back to running the business.
