Eliminate Dust | Allergy relief with HEPA & Air Filters for Your Home

Dust, especially this time of year, can seem to be everywhere in the home. It’s on your nightstand, your blinds, your dining room table, deep within your carpets – basically, it’s everywhere. And without proper air filters in the home (or a HEPA-filtration vacuum) the problem can trigger allergies and asthma. Read Molly Maid’s tips on how to eliminate dust in the home with proper cleaning and air filtration…


  1. Install an Electrostatic-Charged Furnace Filter. First and foremost, one of the easiest things you can do is purchase one of these air filters for your furnace. Forced-air systems in homes can move and generate a lot of dust within the home. By installing an electrostatic-charged furnace filter, it will reduce the amount of dust in the home as the filter attracts and captures dust. Oftentimes electrostatic-charged furnace filters are permanent and washable and tend to be pricier than the ones you toss in the garbage once finished. However, all you have to do is regularly clean the filter and it’s reusable.
  2. Use a HEPA-Filtration Vacuum. HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filtration vacuums are a great way to keep the dust levels lower in your home. Health magazineLink opens in a new tab tested HEPA-filtration models to discover the healthiest vacuum for your home. If you have asthma or allergies, it might be a good idea to vacuum between Molly Maid cleans to keep your symptoms at bay until the next cleaning!
  3. Maybe Use an Air Purification System. There has been some debate about the effectiveness of air purification systems. However, if you are a severe allergy or asthma sufferer, it might not hurt to try. One allergy sufferer tested six air purifiers for a New York TimesLink opens in a new tab article published last spring. Air purifiers vary greatly in price and technology and, according to the article, most manufacturers claim it takes four to six weeks to start feeling the benefits of the purifier.
