How to Get Rid of Dust in House After Construction

February 2, 2024

The process of remodeling your home can be exciting and rewarding. However, it is also very messy and dusty. Dust can cause respiratory problems for people with allergies and asthma, contaminate your furniture and clog your air filters. In addition, it can damage your electronics and make your home look dirty. Therefore, it is essential to get rid of the dust as soon as possible after construction. In this article, we will explore some simple ways to clean up your house after construction and remove any remaining debris and dust particles.

First, start by vacuuming the walls and ceilings with a soft-bristled sweeper. If there is a lot of dust, you can use a vacuum with a vacuum cleaner attachment or a handheld hose. After vacuuming, take a microfiber cloth and wipe the surface of each wall starting with the top and working your way down. Remember to also wipe the ledges on window and door frames and any other flat surfaces in the room.

When cleaning the floor, choose a vacuum or a steam cleaner that will not kick up a lot of dust into the air. If you are using a vacuum, be sure to use the dust brush attachment. After vacuuming, a damp mop can be used to finish off the floor. Make sure the mop is not too wet, and wring it out until it is just damp enough to pick up dust. It is best to do this in one room at a time to prevent the dust from spreading as you work.
