Dust is unsightly, messy and contributes to allergies. You could be contributing to the dust in your home in the following ways:

1. Fuzzy rugs – the fuzzier they are, the more dirt and dust that accumulates in them and the harder they are to keep clean on a regular basis

2. Using old rags and dusters to clean – instead, invest in a microfibre duster or cloth

3. Not having a doormat – it not only keeps your floors clean, but it prevents people from tracking in small particles of dirt, dust, pollen and pet dander from outside

4. Using an ancient vacuum – older models aren’t as good at picking up dust, so it might be time for an upgrade

5. Dry air – higher humidity means that dust can’t cling to surfaces as well, so try to maintain your home’s humidity at about 40 to 50 percent

6. Not cleaning your filters – having dirty filters in your HVAC system allows it to consistently pump dust into your home’s air

And don’t forget about these cleaning tasks, which also contribute to dust!
