How To Keep The Dust Away In Your Apartment

Dust is a common problem in apartments and homes. It can be difficult to keep your house clean, especially if you don't have a lot of space or a large budget for cleaning supplies. Dust can also be an allergy trigger for some people. Here are some ways to keep the dust away in your apartment: 

Keep it clean. The first thing you should do is make sure that your apartment is as clean as possible. You should vacuum or sweep regularly, and wash all the surfaces in your home at least once a week. This will help prevent dust from building up over time, which is especially important if you have allergies or asthma. 

Avoid using air fresheners. These products may make your home smell good, but they also release chemicals into the air that can cause problems for people with asthma or other respiratory conditions. If you need an extra scent in your home, try baking some cookies or roasting coffee beans instead of air fresheners that contain chemicals like benzene, formaldehyde and parfum. 

Open windows often. Opening windows once in a while helps circulate fresh air through your house, which prevents dust from building up inside walls and on furniture where it can be hard to reach with cleaning supplies. 

Get an air purifier for dust mites and other allergens. These devices use fans to circulate air through a filter, trapping allergens like pollen and pet dander in the process. Some models even include ultraviolet lights that destroy germs and viruses as well as allergens, so you can use them in your bedroom at night to help prevent asthma attacks or colds during allergy season. 

Use a vacuum cleaner on your floors regularly. Be sure it has a good filter so that you don't end up breathing in any dust particles that might be left behind by the vacuum cleaner itself. Apart from vacuuming, clean furniture with microfiber cloths instead of paper towels and don't forget to dust underneath objects such as tables or chairs at least once per month if possible. 

Change filters regularly. Changing filters regularly will help ensure that the air circulating through your home is clean. Check your furnace manual for instructions on when to change them and how often they should be replaced (some types of furnaces require changing every three months while others may be able to go up to six). If you aren't sure whether or not a filter needs replacing yet, simply check if there's visible dust on top of it (if so, then change it!). 

It's inevitable. Dust will collect in your apartment, no matter how clean you try to keep it. There's nothing you can do about it, but there are things you can do about dust.

  • This is such a great apartment complex to live in. From the pool to walks on the pier, its really a pretty complex. Set among large old oak trees you have a beautifully landscaped drive home every night. One of my favorite features was my wood burning fireplace, laminate floors and private back deck. I would definitely recommend this place to any of my friends and family.

  • Cannot recommend this place enough. I came here from out of state not knowing the area and this apartment of all the places at East Bay was the one that caught my eye. It's homey and quiet and the staff are polite and very helpful. I was probably a bit of an uppity tenant but the maintenance team answered all my questions/concerns and responded to any issue quickly and got the job done. I love love love the pier and the pool and the grill pavilion. The neighbors are nice (I had lots of people checking in with me when my cat got out) and helpful. I'd move back in a heartbeat!
