Do you ever wonder where dust comes from? Or perhaps a better question is, how can you spend hours cleaning your home only to have dust everywhere a few days later? LOL
Our house seems to accumulate dust – maybe it’s because we have an old furnace? Or maybe because we haven’t finished our renovations so there’s exposed plaster in a few areas?
I don’t know what it is, but it seems no matter how often I clean my house there’s always dust on things within days. Sigh. Oh and we change the filters on our furnace about every two months. I’m sure that helps, but I guess it doesn’t get all the dust. Like I said we have an old furnace, maybe if we had a newer one it would help lower the dust in the house.
Chris had the day off today, so we decide to do a thorough house cleaning. It was snowing outside -our first real snow of the season – so we might as well have done something indoors, right. I changed the bed sheets, and dusted everywhere (even the walls!). Chris followed a bit behind me vacuuming. He even cleaned the three ceiling fans that we have in the house. The arms on the fan even manage to get dust on them when they are running 24 hours a day.
It’s great that my husband is so helpful around the house. He even did the dishes!
We got a flyer today for a local Canadian Pharmacy and they have air purifiers on sale, so I think we might get another one for the house (we already have two). Maybe that will help.
Does your house seem to accumulate dust easily too?
Of course along with the dust we also end up sweeping or vacuuming up a lot of dog hair. Our black Lab always seem to be shedding.
Our dog has two dog beds and we vacuumed them today as well. While I was working on one of them I noticed that there was tons of dog hair stuck on the inside to some of the velcro that holds the donut pillow. Man that was hard to remove! I didn’t get it all – not by a long shot! No wonder her bed was getting smelly!
After seeing how dirty our dogs beds were, my husband decided to take them to the laundromat down the street. They have some really big washing machines and driers. So now the beds are clean (well there’s still some dog hair stuck to the velcro, but they smell much better!).
I also spent some time sewing up some of the holes that our dog had made in her beds by chewing the material. Most of the holes were old ones that she did when she was younger. She’s two now and doesn’t really chew things other than her toys now (thankfully!), so I’m hoping that with the repairs her two beds will last for another year or two.
I love it when the house is clean. I’m not a neat freak, but hey … it is nice when the house is tidy. I’d just like the house to be able to stay clean for a while after putting hours in dusting, vacuuming and cleaning counters, tubs and showers. If the dust and dog hair would go away I’d be really happy!
Time for bed … I love sleeping in a bed that’s just been made up with fresh sheets. Don’t you? …. Good Night!
