Ridding the house of DUST

One of the favourite tasks our customers say they use their Sph2onge for is dusting or damp dusting so why is dust such a pest and how can we best get rid of it?

Dust is caused by a build-up of fibres such as skin cells, textiles, hair, animal fur, dirt and pollen which, if not cleaned regularly, can lead to dust mites. Too much dust in a house can then lead to sneezing and eye irritation as well as worsening the symptoms of hayfever, asthma and allergies.

Therefore, it is important to regularly do a deep dust at least every two weeks. This involves removing items from surfaces such as worktops, windowsills and furniture, dusting the surface with a Sph2onge or cloth by Sph2onge then the individual items before vacuuming or sweeping the surrounding area.  

Some people choose to use traditional stick or feather duster but these have a tendency to pick up only some of the dust and leave the remainder floating in the air whereas your Sph2onge product has the advantage of being able to hold onto all dust it removes.

Aside from cleaning regularly, there are steps you can take to reduce the dust building up in the first place.

Make sure any windows and doors are properly sealed to prevent external fibres such as pollen entering; use a doormat to stop dust entering from outside; take off shoes in the house and keep pets groomed to prevent them shedding fur.

If the problem is still troubling you, another option is to invest in an air purifier which will trap excess dust particles in the air.

  • Having only used polish and a microfibre cloth to dust the day before I was shocked to see how much dust I picked up using my new Sph2onge. Definitely converted me! Thank you!

  • I hadn’t thought to damp dust with my sph2onge! Am going to give my blinds a go with it later. Most dreaded job!!

  • I used my cloth sph2onge on my very dusty Venetian blinds. What a labour saver! It’s the job I hate and usually leaves so much mess on the window sills. Using my sph2onge kept the dust on that and they came up a treat!!

  • I haven’t used my sph2onge to damp dust yet but I am definitely going to try it.
