The easiest way to dust your home. We all have to dust our homes sooner or later because after a while, dust builds up on flat surfaces everywhere. This can make those surfaces look dirty and dull. When left alone, dust can actually cause scratching and damage to your tables and shelves. Dust is also the cause of allergies and breathing problems for many people. If you dust regularly, you will not only be protecting your furniture, but your family members will benefit also.

What is Dust?

Dust is some pretty gross stuff. Its comprised of human skin cells, fabric fibers, pet dander, dust mite excrement, regular dirt, pollen, hair, debris and micro particles.

For people who have allergies, the dust mite is the worst part about dust. These little guys play the most significant role in all the sniffling and sneezing caused by dust. The dust mite is a microscopic, spider-like creature which is found in millions of homes. It is primarily found in carpets, mattresses and upholstered furniture and thrives in humid and warm conditions. The dust mite feeds on shed scales from human skin, and the waste products produced by these mites are highly allergenic (able to cause allergic reaction). These waste products will even continue to cause allergic symptoms even after the mite that produced them has died.

The Easy Way to Dust

Using a microfiber cloth is one of the fastest and easiest ways to dust your home. Microfiber is also significantly safer than traditional sprays and chemical soaked cloths. When you use a microfiber dusting cloth to dust your home, you only need the cloth alone. Forget all those expensive and hard to breathe dusting products. Just grab your microfiber cloth and you are ready to clean surfaces all over your home. Get the cloth wet and you have the best cleaning rag you have ever used. Microfiber is a better way to dust. The unique fibers do all the work for you.

Why Dust With Microfiber?

Microfiber cloths are a great choice for dusting because they grab and hold a ton of dust without releasing it into the air. Microfiber material is made of 80% polyester and 20% polyamide, and  each fiber is 100 times thinner than a human hair. The unique weave of this fabric enables it to pick up and hold dust better than any other cloth available. Tiny hooks and loops, get into the surface and under the dirt. It is then picked up and stored in the cloth, leaving behind a shiny streak-free surface, with no residue. Microfiber cleans and polishes at the same time. Whats even better is that microfiber actually builds up a static charge as you dust with it. This charge helps to pull in even the finest dust particles, and keeps them from flying around at the same time. The combined power of the hundreds of thousands of fibers per square inch and the static charge they create is unmatched for removing dust.

Microfiber Dusting Cloth

Our super  plush dusting cloth is one of the best microfiber cloths available for dusting your home. The plush side, with it’s longer nap, has increased dusting ability. When you run your hand across the material, you ca actually feel it grabbing at you skin. This “stickiness” is nothing more than the high quality material and it’s ability to grab an hold every particle of dust it comes in contact with. You can pick up twice the amount of dust and hair as regular multi-purpose cloths. Use this towel dry to dust your home, office or vehicle in less time. These dusting cloths aren’t treated with any chemicals, and they are completely machine washable. Reuse this microfiber towel hundreds of times and keep your home dust free for years.

Microfiber Dusting Wand

Need to remove dust in hard to reach places? A microfiber duster wand can give you the same power as a cloth, but in a longer tool that is also, thin, rigid and flexible. A microfiber duster is ideal for ceiling fans, tall shelves, between appliances, or even on regular surfaces for those that prefer to stand farther away, and those that want to avoid touching dirt with their hands. It is basically a bendable wand that has a high quality dusting sleeve made from microfiber material similar to that of the microfiber cloth, so it is just as effective at eliminating dust in a gentle manner that requires no additional sprays or chemicals.

The outer cover can be removed for washing, so it is completely reusable and long lasting, and it does require refills or additional purchases to keep it working. Bend into a loop to clean all sides of a fan blade at once, give it a ninety degree bend at the top to wipe clean ledges and high shelves, or keep it straight to dust regular surfaces, or tight places like under the fridge, behind the stove, or in between two appliances. This easy to use tool is safe for all surfaces, and it will quickly and easily lift up and lock in small particles to leave wood, metal, glass and other surfaces free of particles and looking spotless and polished.

Static Duster

Another great tool that offers one of the fastest and easiest ways to remove dust all over your home is a static duster. These are not made from microfiber, but they do work in a similar way, and they will still provide one of the best methods due to how easy an effective they are. As with the cloth and wand above, no sprays or chemicals are needed for good results, and the tool is not treated  with any either. This powerful tool is basically a thin metal rod that is super durable and totally flexible. Attached to this inner core are thousands of fine synthetic fibers. The individual strands are quite long, and overall, it sort of looks like a regular feather duster.

As far as how they work, the name says it all. You build a strong static charge in order to suck up dust like a magnet. Instead of chasing it around, or getting frustrated as you merely brush it to the ground, this tool will lift it up, and lock it in. Because it is flexible like the microfiber one, you can also bend it into any shape or angle to allow for cleaning in almost any area. For really high stuff, we even have extension poles to stretch you reach. When compared to microfiber, this tool will produce a stronger charge, but overall effectiveness will really depend upon preference because they all work really well.

  • The cloth is extremely effective for removing dust when used dry. It is only for cleaning that you would dampen the cloth. Otherwise, use it dry to dust virtually any surface. After using the cloth you can rinse it clean under warm water, or throw it in the wash. They are totally machine washable and will stand up to hundreds of washings

  • No matter how clean the home, all mattresses are prone to the same problem. When we sleep, we produce up to half a liter of sweat every night & shed about a gram of skin each day and although we wear night clothes, which we wash regularly, together with our bed linen, this is no protection against what happens to the mattress.Very quickly the mattress will become host to a multitude of horrors, from bacteria to fungal spores and microscopic house dust mites which feed off dead flakes of skin. Is it any wonder that without cleaning a mattress, it could be the dirtiest item in your home? It is estimated that there are up to 2 million house dust mites living in a mattress and in an average pillow, 10% of its weight is made up of dead skin and dust mites.House dust mites find a mattress the perfect breeding ground. With warmth and moisture and no natural enemies, they will establish in a mattress within several months and it is their droppings which cause most problems. These have been medically proven to trigger a whole host of allergic reactions, from Asthma, Eczema and Bronchitis, to Itchy Eyes and Sneezing.Even protective bedding sheets may be largely ineffective in reducing problems like asthma, when they are the only measure taken to combat an allergy (source: New England Journal of Medicine).The idea of mattress cleaning isn’t a new one. In other European countries and the United States, it has been performed for years. It’s chemical-free, dry and all performed on site using specially designed state of the art equipment.The current view of many experts is that dust mites are impossible to totally remove. This is true, it would be very expensive and almost impossible, but by knowing a little about them it is very feasible to make a dramatic impact on them and improve your dust mite allergy.Therefore, if a combination of measures are undertaken, then the likelihood of some one’s dust mite allergy improving will increase drastically.Most suggestions will be to remove carpets and replace with hardwood floor, buy a good protective mattress cover, wash at 130+ degrees and clean regularly. However, while this may help, this is not the right answer for everybody and that is why when we come to you to clean your mattress, we can help in many other ways as well.
