A Dust Allergy : Spring Cleaning Avoided

Are you one of those people that loves to clean in bursts? A dust allergy may cause you to adapt a new strategy. Instead of waiting until spring cleaning to do a major clean up you should consider taking out the feather duster more often. If you find yourself sneezing and wheezing and you can’t figure out why, you might just have a dust allergy. A dust allergy occurs when dust enters your system. You can either breath it in from the air or you might come in direct contact with it.

There’s little you can do about a dust allergy, except for cleaning the dust in your house with a feather duster. Just make sure that when you are cleaning the dust in your house that you don’t spread it around. Clean it softly so that you contain it as much as possible. If you or someone in your house has a dust allergy you don’t need to stir the dust up since it will just cause more problems.

Dust is Everywhere

Even if you don’t have a dust allergy you might be amazed at the amount of dust that can accumulate in a matter of days. You may even be someone who already cleans regularly yet the dust always seem to appear. Dust can accumulate in any space that’s not cleaned on a regular basis and this can sometimes mean daily.

Common Places Where Dust is Found:

  • Television
  • Bookshelves
  • Computers
  • Tables
  • Under Beds
  • Behind Doors…

A dust allergy can make someone crazy because the job of cleaning the dust never seems to end. Dust is comprised of everything from dead skin cells to dirt to anything else that can accumulate in areas that aren’t cleaned regularly.

To maximize the cleaning of dust, and to alleviate the bad affects of your dust allergy, make sure, when you do clean your house, that you use a feather duster and go slow. Get all the areas that you might frequent, so that you can prevent breathing in the dust that makes you sneeze, cough, wheeze, or whatever else it makes you do.

Vacuum cleaners are a great option. You can get a small vacuum cleaner that will also help you suck up the dust without spreading it around. The benefit of a vacuum cleaner is that you collect the dust in a bag, or whatever kind of receptacle the vacuum uses, and then you can just throw it away and replace it when you’re done. Unlike a feather duster, a vacuum has less of a chance of spreading the dust all around your house. Air purifiers are also good at keeping the amounts of dust down and furthermore help remove other allergens from the air as well.

Until they come up with a cure for dust allergies regular cleaning is your best bet to help avoid and manage your dust allergy. Regular cleaning may be a pain but on the good side it will help you avoid that huge spring cleaning project.
