As we wrap up summer, California fires, and pollen in the air, we should consider dusting. It has to be said that dusting is probably not your favorite way to spend your time, nor is it something you will want to do regularly. However, you need to remember that no matter how tiresome it can feel to dust, it is a necessary chore to do.
Not sure that you believe us? Need some inspiration to get dusting your home? Here are some of the top reasons that regular dusting is a vital chore that you should make the time to do.
What is dust?
The first thing to learn is what dust is, which may be enough to encourage you to change your dusting habits. Dust, for the most part, is made up of dead skin cells. These fall to the floor and into the air, and over time they build up into actually visible dust.
Within these skin cells, other things can also build up. These could be other debris from your home; you may even find that mites are attracted to the cells they see as food.
Finally, with dust, germs can come, which can put you and your family at risk if you are constantly surrounded by dust on a day-to-day basis, which is why removing dust is a vital part of managing your home.
It can be dangerous to you
One of the most important reasons to keep your home dust-free is because it can be dangerous to your health. Dust can cause a variety of issues to develop or to worsen if you already have them.
This includes allergies, asthma, runny noses, and itchy eyes. These things may be obvious when you think about it; however, what you may not realize is that dust in the air can also impact other things, such as your reproductive hormone development and the development of your brain.
It can help your AC unit
If you have an AC unit at home, you will already know how important it is that this is working as it should when you need it. This means that you may need to make sure that you do whatever you can to keep top of it. Arranging AC repair and maintenance is key, but you may not realize it, but so is keeping the air in your home clean.
After all, any dust or debris in the air will make its way into your AC unit, which is not an ideal situation to find yourself in. Keeping your home clean and dust-free means that even less dust gets into your AC unit, and then this can stay clean too.
It is not going to look nice
Compared to the other reasons, this may seem superficial, but the last thing you want is to find that people think your home is dirty (or that you feel that way about where you live) simply because it is dusty.
I know that dust doesn’t necessarily mean that your home is dirty, but it gives that impression. Therefore you should try your best to keep your home as dust-free as possible.
