Ditch the Cobwebs This Halloween and Keep Dust Away

Cobwebs can seem like an appealing bit of Halloween décor, but they bring some nasty accompaniments with them. Whether real or artificial, they’ll serve as a prime resting spot for dust mites, dirt, pollen and other irritants in the Jacksonville, Florida, air. Skip the cobwebs as you’re decorating for Halloween this year to keep your home clean and free of dust.

Keep Up With HVAC Maintenance

Your HVAC system pulls dust and circulates it throughout the house. While a clean air filter will stop some of the dust, it can’t capture all of it. You’re likely to have a buildup of dust in other parts of your system, too.

Schedule an annual maintenance visit this fall to take care of dust in the internal parts of your heating system. Taking care of air duct repairs will help keep dust out of your ductwork, as well.

Clean Hidden Dust Havens

Take an afternoon to seek out hidden dust havens throughout your home and clean them. Dust is likely to collect on your ceiling fan, along the tops of baseboards, between blinds, on top of cabinets and between the cushions of the couch.

As you’re cleaning around window and door frames, look for cracks where air can leak in or out. Seal these to keep dust, pollen and other irritants out where they belong.

Upgrade Your Air Filtration

Change your HVAC air filter at least once every three months. Check it monthly for visible buildup.

If you need more frequent filter changes, consider upgrading your filtration system to keep the home clean. An air cleaner can capture small particulate matter that your standard air filter might miss.

Stay clear of cobwebs this fall, and opt for fresh autumn decorations instead. With preventive HVAC maintenance and smart cleaning routines, you can keep dust and other irritants out of your home this season so your family can breathe easy.
