  1. Replace your carpets. J.R. Air Duct Cleaning understands that this may be a drastic step for some, but hear us out. Carpets are notoriously hard to clean, and they are a magnet to collect dirt and dust. Carpets are also very good at hiding dirt and dust, so your carpets could be dirty without you even knowing it. Carpets need to be vacuumed every day in order to keep the dirt, grime, and dust mites at bay. However, if you or a member of your family has severe allergies, replacing your carpets will yield immediate relief. If you insist on keeping your carpets, invest in a high-quality vacuum cleaner with a double-layered microfilter bag or a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter. These filters are designed to prevent dust particles from escaping into the air when you are vacuuming.
  2. Always dust with a wet cloth. While feather duster are cute to have around, they are basically useless. You are simply moving the dust around, not eliminating it from your home. J.R. Air Duct Cleaning recommends you always use a wet cloth or wipe to dust. That way, the dust will cling to the wipe, and you throw it and the dust away. It’s that simple.
  3. Invest in an air purifier. An air purifier, well, purifies your air, removing many harmful allergens and pollutants (including dust) from your air. Choose from active or passive air purifiers in your home. Active air purifiers use ionization to purify the air, while passive air purifiers use filters to clean your air.
  4. Invest in regular air duct and dryer duct cleaning. Air duct and dryer duct cleaning improves ventilation and rids your air of dirt and grime that has accumulated and can be recirculated in these systems. J.R Air Duct Cleaning can help.
