Dust is more than just an eyesore. It contributes to poor indoor air quality, which can trigger asthma, allergies, and other respiratory issues. Here are some simple tips to reduce dust in your workplace.
Dust accumulates quickly, so the best way to prevent it from building up is to clean surfaces every day. A quick wipe down of surfaces like desks, windowsills, and shelves each day will go a long way in getting rid of dust. Make a habit of dusting every day at the same time so you don’t forget.
Use Microfibre Cloths
Microfibre cloths are your best friend when it comes to dust. Unlike other materials that simply unsettle dust and push it around, microfibre actually picks it up and absorbs it, so when you clean a surface with a microfibre cloth, the dust is removed completely.
Vacuuming often is a good way to prevent dust from accumulating and becoming deeply embedded in carpet and rug fibres. The longer you go without vacuuming, the harder it is to lift dust, dirt, and other debris from carpets, so make a regular habit by dedicating a specific time to vacuum at least once a week. Stick to your routine and you’ll have much less dust to contend with!
The less clutter you have lying around, the less sneaky surfaces there are for dust to accumulate on. It’s also much easier to wipe down surfaces when they’re not crammed with objects that you need to move off in order to clean the area, and then put back. Keep clutter to a minimum and dusting will be a breeze.
