Don’t Let the Dust Settle

Richmond Woman Dusting a ShelfMaintenance of a dust-free Richmond home can be difficult. This is true especially when a lot of dusters move dust around rather than trapping and removing it. What a total waste of time and money! Dusting effectively can only be achieved through the use of the right tools! There are different kinds of dusters available on the market. Pick out the one that best suits your needs.

Feather Dusters

Feather dusters are not only for the high and lofty. They are a great choice for anyone since they are durable, all-purpose dusters. Even so, you have to look for the right kind. If dust is what you want to get rid of, then look for dusters that make use of ostrich down feathers. Ostrich down feathers are thick and soft and efficiently capture dust. Although they can be on the expensive side, feather dusters made of other types of feathers or synthetic materials won’t work. Conversely, cheap feather dusters will flick dust all around the room until the dust settles back onto your furniture.

Wool Dusters

Ever thought of wool? They make for really good dusters, and they are made out of natural material. Wool dusters attract and collect dust with static and natural lanolin in the fibers. If you’re planning on dusting delicate surfaces that scratch easily, wool is the perfect choice because of how soft it is. Even though they may not be widely available in your locality, wool dusters are sold all over the online market.

Microfiber Dusters

If you’re looking for dusters that are both affordable and effective, look no further than microfiber dusters! Coming in different sizes and styles, these dusters achieve one goal: removing dust. Microfiber works so well because it is made of tiny filaments that rub together, creating static electricity. This static attracts dust, making dust removal speedy and uncomplicated. Microfiber is also washable and reusable, making it one of the most economically friendly dusters around.

Microfiber dusters come in a wide variety. A number of them are hand-dusters, with an easy-grip handle that lets you operate the duster out of corners and across high shelves. There are those that are built with extendable handles to make it easier for you to reach the tops of door frames and photo frames. Window blinds, however, are a different story. They have a duster specifically for them. Designed with three prongs, this microfiber duster slips between the slats and grabs dust on both sides with every swipe. Another creative choice is dusting mitt. It’s like an oven mitt, but it has microfiber material designed for wiping down surfaces.

Disposable Dusters

Disposable dusting pads are also another common choice. These dusters are made from tiny polyester fibers and rely on static electricity to attract and remove dust. They work effectively, and they all come with either dusting kits with a reusable handle or packs of refill pads. Many people choose these dusters as their personal preference because it’s easy to tell when it’s visibly dirty. Once that happens, they just throw the pad away.

Compressed Air

Finally, if you need to dust delicate electronic devices or small crevices, one of the best dusters you can use is compressed air. The compressed air comes in cans that you can spray to remove dust from whatever area you want. Aside from this, you can keep at your disposal a number of other dusters, as well, for other purposes.
