Another One Fights The Dust: What Is The Best Way To Dust?

Do you ever feel like you are constantly dusting? As a job we all love to hate, we understand that it can often be everyone’s least favourite cleaning task.


Keeping on top of dust whether it is in a commercial or home environment can be a huge challenge, but regular dusting is hugely important in order to keep allergies at bay, and to portray the right image to those visiting a property. Dusting should come top of the list for any spring cleaner; and the all year round cleaning enthusiast for that matter too!

We take a look at the best way to dust, and some of the most innovative dusting products available which can make the chore less laborious.

How Should I Dust?


With dust mainly consisting of dead skin cells (yuck!), textile and paper fibres and allergens such as plant pollen, animal dander and dust mites, it’s vital to show dust the door. A more thorough dusting process can help reduce the frequency required for this task. The next time you come to dust, consider the following –

  • Dust from Top to Bottom

In order to prevent displacing dust, instead of actually removing it, it’s vital that you dust the room in question from top to bottom. This way you won’t find yourself in an endless cycle of dust transfer!

  • Use the Right Tools

A feather duster may be the traditional way to dust, but due to advancements in the cleaning sector, it is a microfibre cloth that will have the most impact when it comes to dusting. A feather duster will just move the dust around, whereas a dampened microfibre cloth will effectively remove the dust in question. A microfibre cloth is a cleaning staple you simply can’t live without!

  • Banish the Dust Bunnies

If dust bunnies appear, this is suggesting that these areas aren’t getting the attention they require when it comes to dusting. Try not to forget about these often neglected areas, and with regular dusting combined with vacuuming, it’ll be another bunny biting the dust!

  • Take Your Time

You might be racing against the clock to get your cleaning tasks completed, but dusting in rush won’t provide you with any long term benefit. Dusting in a hurry will see dust being pushed around rather than removed. Using a slow, deliberate motion is the best way to dust, and always remember to switch the sides of your cloth (the WeColine printed microfibre cloths provide a useful reminder!) when it gets dirty.

Try The 3M Easy Trap Duster For Stunning Results

If you are looking to spend less time sweeping floors, and more time admiring fantastic results, the 3M Easy Trap Duster sweep and dust sheets are the perfect solution. The amazing system has the ability to trap up to eight times more dirt, and sand than using traditional mops. So whether you are wishing to achieve spotless schools, hygienic floors, or flawless foyers, look no further!

Unlike many floor cleaning systems which require extensive training, the 3M Easy Trap Duster

Unlike many floor cleaning systems which require extensive training, the 3M Easy Trap Duster system can be used easily. It’s extremely versatile and can be used on nearly every surface, meaning it’s perfect for retail, healthcare, schools, hotels, gyms, banks and more. It can even trap more hair than traditional dust mops, meaning that the sheets are prefect for salons and vets.

It’s called the Easy Trap for a reason – it can pick up difficult debris such as glitter and other small particles with ease, and works equally well on both wet and dry floors. Any dust is trapped and held on to, and when one side of the sheet is saturated, you can simply flip it over and use the other side. The fact that the sheets are disposable is a major plus point too, providing a more hygienic option, and reducing the requirement for laundering.
