Dusting seems like a simple concept: take a cloth or feather duster and wipe it over surfaces that have collected dust. Viola! You have a dust-free house. Unfortunately it is not that easy. Sometimes when you dust, all you are really doing is moving the dust around. At times, the act of dusting is just getting the dust particles into the air where they can wreak havoc with your allergies.

If you have bad dust allergies or suffer from asthma, you should consider wearing a dust mask (found in the hardware section of most stores) to keep the dust particles out of your lungs. Even if you do not have these issues, if you need to dust a particularly dirty area, you should consider using one of these masks also.

Here are some other tips to help keep your n95 mask for sale.

Dust from Top to Bottom
When you dust higher surfaces, some of the dust inevitably falls onto surfaces below. To save yourself from having to dust the same surface more than once (or to have an already dusted surface look dirty by the end of the process), be sure to dust higher areas first.

Dry Dust First
Always dry dust (with a cloth or duster) first. If the area needs to be wet dusted (using polish or other cleaner) only do that after you have removed the excess dust with a dry dusting.

Use Mats
Having floor mats both inside and outside of the entrances of the house will help reduce the amount of dust and dirt that gets tracked into your home on the bottoms of shoes.

Have the Right Tools for the Job
This can vary from room to room. Feather dusters may be great for getting into those hard to reach places on shelves, but might not get the job done for larger surfaces. That dusty ceiling fan may need a microfiber cloth on an extendable pole. You might want to invest in a electrostatic cloth, but dryer sheets are also a nice, cheaper alternative.

Brush Your Pets
By brushing your pets, you will reduce shedding hair and dander that can accumulate in your home
