When it comes to regularly cleaning parts of your home, certain areas can get glossed over. Some cleaning tasks don’t seem as important as others and you may find yourself skipping parts of your home that don’t feel as necessary. Dusting and vacuuming are two of the most important cleaning habits you should be doing on a regular basis. You might ask yourself “Okay, do those dust bunnies under the couch really matter if no one sees them?” We have a few important reasons why you need to regularly be vacuuming and dusting, and some tips to make the process more bearable.



Allergies can be hard to deal with, especially during peak seasons such as spring or fall. This can result in unwanted sneezing and coughing as well as just a general unwell feeling. There are certain precautions you can take to avoid allergens or get rid of them, but regular dusting and vacuuming can be a huge help. Dusting all your surfaces can get rid of allergens such as dust mites, pet dander and fur, and pollen. Vacuuming goes hand in hand with dusting. Vacuuming can collect all the allergens and debris that you often can’t see, leaving you feeling clearer and healthier.

Air quality is very important for your health, especially if someone is affected by asthma or other upper respiratory conditions. If not properly taken care of, the air in your home can hold allergens, dust mites, pet dander and mold. You can do things such as changing your air filter regularly, but routinely dusting the surfaces, as well as vents in your home, can do wonders for your air quality.



Simple Vacuum and Dusting Tips

Here are some helpful dusting and vacuuming tips for your home that will have your home looking and feeling great!

Start from the top and work your way down.

This might seem self-explanatory, but the best way to dust your home is to start at the highest point in a room and work your way down.  Start in the corner of the room and work your way around, going from top to bottom in sections.

Clean the dirtiest room first.

Get your hardest task out of the way so when you’re tired of cleaning, you have the most daunting part behind you. Whether it’s dusting ceiling fans or vacuuming stairs, this tip can apply to both dusting and vacuuming.

Dust your ceiling fans.

Wipe the ceiling fan blade and collect the dust. This way the dust is contained in the cloth or duster instead of floating in the air or falling to the ground. After that, simply toss the cloth or duster, unless it’s reusable!

Start at the furthest corner of your room.

This helps you avoid stepping on a part of the floor you may have already vacuumed. You essentially want to vacuum toward the door or entrance to the room or vacuum your way out of the room.

Check your lampshades.

An often-overlooked piece of furniture are your lampshades! Dust, dander and hair collect on both the outside and the inside, and one bump can send all that scattered everywhere. Make sure to gently and thoroughly wipe them down.

Don’t forget your molding!

One place you might never think of is the molding around your flooring and doorways. They often have small ledges and intricate grooves where dust loves to collect! While it might seem daunting, make sure to go around and wipe them down so the dust doesn’t seep in and crust onto the paint.



When you clean with the HYLA, the air with dust and other particles enters the HYLA water pan through the inlet tube, creating an upward stream of water – the HYLA Geyser. This effect ensures optimal conditions for filtration by creating a mixture of droplets and dust particles, while the NEW HYLA DEFENDER blades cut larger water droplets into microdroplets and disperse them at high speed. The HYLA EST is extremely capable of reducing and eliminating pollutants within the air in your home, increasing your indoor air quality while reducing need for dirty filters, harsh chemicals, and more.
