8 simple steps to get rid of dust after home remodeling 

  1. Say good bye to the dust easily:

it’s common that after moving furniture, demolishing walls and sanding, there is always dust floating around your house. A quick way to get rid of it is to open the window and place a fan blowing out, it will make the particles away, little by little you’ll see how the air in your place is being purified.

  1. Eliminate the dust from the objects:

Try to use a cloth to clean the objects, make sure the cloth you’re using is not full of water because you will only be able to take the dirt from one place to another. Once you see that the cloth does not drip, pass it through the electrical appliances, tables and windows. Always try to use dusting tool in order to be successful in your task.

  1. Clean the ceiling and walls using a damp mop:

Dip the mop in the bucket with water and squeeze it until you don’t spill a drop of water. Then, place it in the corner that joins the wall and the ceiling and pull it as if you were cleaning the floor. This is something you could also do to clean the walls.

  1. Clean the floor:

It is important not to sweep the floor, as it will only cause dirt and debris to spread all over the place. It is recommended to make use of a vacuum cleaner with high efficiency filter. This vacuum cleaner absorbs even the smallest dirt and you must pass it from side to side stepping only in dust-free areas.

  1. Remove traces of paint:

If this is the case and you need to remove traces of paint, varnish or enamel, try to moisten the stain with a little nail polish remover with acetone, you will see that the dirt softens in a few seconds, you just have to scrape it.

  1. Remove spots on the floor:

If after vacuuming you find spots on the floor, try moistening a cloth with a bit of soda and squeezing the soil where the stain is located until it comes out. If case it doesn’t work, try a bit of hydrogen peroxide. For sure it will work!

  1. Remove remain of cements, mud or glue:

Removing these remains is usually easy with a scale remover, you can find one in the cleaning section of any hardware store. Moisten a cloth with a descaler, pass it where the stain is and then scrape the glob with a spatula.

  1. Prevent accumulating dirt:

One of the most important thing of all is to prevent dirt to accumulate. Try to remove the dust everyday after each working day or at least every single weekend.

If time passes and you accumulate a lot of it, it will be harder to remove the dust and chemicals adhered to the surface.
