Dust and Mites

Office Cleaning Sydney CBD

Dust has been a cleaning problem since houses were first built centuries ago. Where dust mites came along is still uncertain, but they are also a problem, especially to those of us with allergies. The pollen that go along with dust are also a problem for allergies.

Dust tends to accumulate if we don’t actively take measures to remove it. And of course it doesn’t confine itself to obvious and easy to reach places. Dust gets behind bookcases, under beds, and many other hard to reach areas. It helps to get dust out of the air before it settles in these spots.

We can minimize dust by:

  • Changing bedding at least once per week
  • Keep closets closed when not in use. Store items in bags
  • Remove items from floors. It is easier to clean bare open spaces than piles of belongings.
  • Timber and hard floors harbor far less dust than carpet.
  • Vacuum floors with a soft attachment.
  • Remove dust with a damp microfibre cloth.
  • A negative ion generator will attract dust out of the air. So you only have to clean the area around the device.
  • Clean computers and related equipment with a small vacuum and a can of compressed air.
  • Air purifiers, with a HEPA filers, get of a lot of allergens and dust out of the interior air.


Dust Mites

  • Hot washing can remove dust mites from bedding. But obviously we cannot wash the mattress this way.
  • Leaving Bi carb of soda on the mattress for a few hour will kill dust mites. essential oils like Eucalyptus, Tea Tree oil and Peppermint will also fight dust mites.
  • Leaving the mattress in the Sun will help kill dust mites.
    Use protective bedding. This means pillow cases and mattress cases that block out dust mites.
  • Solutions of vinegar and strong black tea apparently fight dust mites. Best to do this before washing.
