Good question. Dusting is my favorite cleaning chore; especially when the surface is very dusty. I love the way it looks after it’s been cleaned. Such a feeling of accomplishment!
We are going to share with you our system of dusting, which we have found works beautifully.
When we dust, we work around the around in a circle cleaning from top to bottom. We attack cobwebs, window sills, tables, lamp shades, pretty much every horizontal surface in the room. Also, the blinds and baseboards are dusted (we do rotate the blinds and baseboards, this is the only task we rotate).
We are armed and dangerous. Okay, not really. But we have several tools in our dusting arsenal. In our aprons, we carry a damp microfiber cloth as well as a dry one. We also carry a Swiffer duster with a reusable felt dusting head (the felt really captures the dust).
As we’re moving around the room, we’ll use whatever is best suited to the task. If there is a lot of dust, we will clean it with the damp cloth and-here’s the really important part: after we go over it with a damp cloth, we go over it again with a dry cloth to remove any last, lingering bits of dust (don’t you hate those!). Works like a charm every time. The Swiffer is only used when there is a small amount of dust or to reach up to the ceiling to get the cobwebs.
We also carry with us a dusting product; not too many of our clients ask for this but we got you covered if you love your Pledge!
So that is our dusting system. Very efficient and thorough!
