Have you ever do a home improvement or construction project to your house? Whether it is in a large scale project or even just a small improvement project, surely there will be piles of fine dust from the project that scattered all over the place, even at furthest area from the project.
These dusts usually are so soft and light, so it will require a lot of effort and time to get rid of it completely. To save the amount of time and effort to clean it, there are few methods to help you clean your home from these dusts such as;
Do not try to sweep those dusts
Sweeping those light dusts will only make them more scattered all over the place. This is because the dust is so light, it will fly in to the air even with slightest touch. It will be like playing tags with the dust.
Of course if there larger debris from the project such as some parts from the wood, plaster, stone or other material from the project, you will need to sweep them to clean the area. But, do not try to sweep the remaining soft dust immediately after you have disposed the large debris. So, you need to let those dusts are settle few moments before you remove them.
Use vacuum cleaner to suck up the dust
Using vacuum to remove the soft dust is more effective than using broom to sweep those dusts. Vacuum every surface of the floor, furniture, windows and door’s frames using the vacuum’s small attachment.
Use a damp cloth after vacuuming
Vacuumed thoroughly on every surface of object that is in the area including the vertical surface of every object. After you have vacuum the soft dust from the surface of every object in the area and the floor, then you need to wipe every object in the area including the surface of the floor with a damp cloth. If the dust already stick to the surface of an object and cannot be removed with the damp cloth, then you can use cleaning solution that is safe to clean the object.
Cleaning the floor
Regarding with cleaning the floor from the soft dust, you need to vacuum thoroughly if you are using carpets then wash the carpet right away. You can contact a carpet cleaning service if it is too hard for you to wash the carpet.
But, if your floor is hard flooring such as wood or stone tiles, you need to use scrubber drier it after you vacuum it. Mopping it with wet cloth does not effectively clean the dust. You will only make the dust wet and smudge it to the floor causing muddy marks on the floor.
If your home is using floor boarding, you need to put the carpet back on the floor immediately after you have vacuum the floor underneath the carpet. This is to prevent the dust rising up to the surface again from the boarding gaps when people are walking on the board.
