Get Out Your Feather Duster: Someone In The House Might Have A Dust Allergy

When you are cleaning your house, don't forget about the dust. If you find yourself sneezing and wheezing and you can't figure out why, you might just have a dust allergy. A dust allergy occurs when dust enters your system, either breathed in or touched to the skin, which causes you to have an allergic reaction. There's little you can do about a dust allergy, except for cleaning the dust in your house with a feather duster. Just make sure that when you are cleaning the dust in your house that you don't spread it around. Clean it softly so that you contain it as much as possible. After all, if you or someone in your house has a dust allergy and you're spreading it all over the air in your vain attempt to clean it, you're just causing more harm than good.

Every House Has Dust

When you have a dust allergy, you can be amazed at how much dust you have in your house, even if you're a very clean person. Dust can accumulate in any space that's not cleaned on a regular basis. That includes the top and the screen of your television, on top of bookshelves, on table tops, and even under your bed. A dust allergy can make someone crazy as they try to completely rid their house of dust; a job that seems to never end. For every house has dust. Dust is comprised of everything from dead skin cells to dirt to anything else that can accumulate in areas that aren't cleaned regularly.

To maximize the cleaning of dust, and to alleviate the bad affects of your dust allergy, make sure, when you do clean your house, that you use a feather duster and go slow. Get all the areas that you might frequent, so that you can prevent breathing in the dust that makes you sneeze, cough, wheeze, or whatever else it makes you do. Or, you can get a small vacuum cleaner that will also help you suck up the dust without spreading it around. The benefit of a vacuum cleaner is that you collect the dust in a bag, or whatever kind of receptacle the vacuum uses, and then you can just throw it away and replace it when you're done. Unlike a feather duster, a vacuum has less of a chance of spreading the dust all around your house.

So, if you do have a dust allergy, make sure you clean your house thoroughly. That way, you can live a normal life without having to sneeze every two seconds because you happened to miss a little dust on your last cleaning run.
