The Dust You Don’t See: How High Dusting Improves Air Quality and Cleanliness


Have you ever walked into a space and felt an unexplained itch in your throat, or a slight difficulty breathing? This discomfort could be caused by something high and out of sight – the dust seated atop shelves, air ducts, and ceiling fixtures. This is the hidden world of dust bunnies, cobwebs, and forgotten debris. This imperceptible dust can significantly impact your environment, affecting both air quality and overall cleanliness. But fear not! High dusting can clear the air.

Why High Dusting Matters:

Dust isn’t merely an aesthetic concern. It can harbor allergens like pollen, pet dander, and dust mites, triggering allergies and respiratory issues. Additionally, neglected dust can build up on vents and ducts, hindering air circulation and reducing air quality.

The High Dusting Approach:

High dusting involves tackling those hard-to-reach areas above eye level, typically anything out of reach from the ground. Here’s how our professionals approach it:

  • Preparation is key: Drop cloths are placed under the dusting area to catch falling debris and protect furniture.
  • Arsenal of tools: Specialized equipment like vacuums with extension poles, microfiber cloths, and dusters are employed. Exhaust fans are used to draw out dust particles, ensuring they don’t settle back onto surfaces.
  • Cleaning the unseen: No stone is left unturned during the cleaning process. This includes the ceiling, the tops of walls, light fixtures, ductwork, pipes, vents, and even beams and baffles.
  • Cleaning up: Once the dust has been completely removed and contained, the fallen debris beneath is removed, leaving a clean and healthy space.

Benefits of High Dusting:

Regular high dusting offers a multitude of benefits, among them are the following:

  • Improved air quality: By removing dust and allergens from the air, high dusting can significantly improve your indoor air quality, making it easier to breathe, especially for those with allergies or asthma.
  • Enhanced aesthetics: A clean and dust-free environment creates a more visually appealing and relaxing space.
  • Extended lifespan of equipment: Removing dust buildup from vents and ducts helps them function efficiently, allowing them to work efficiently and extending their lifespan.
