Dusting is a necessary chore for a few reasons. Dust on surfaces can make surfaces look dingy and dirty. Dust can actually cause scratching and damage to household surfaces. Dust also presents allergy and breathing problems for many groups of people. Dusting as a regular chore can protect family members and the surfaces of our homes.
If you do have an allergy sufferer in your home, you may need to dust spots that attract dust like electronics and furniture biweekly or weekly. Out of the way spots won't be able to be forgotten either. Dust door frames, ceilings, baseboards, and more every 1-2 weeks to prevent a buildup that can trigger an allergic reaction. Be sure to use a dusting tool that won't just spread the dust back into the air.
