There are many places we overlook when cleaning. Dust accumulates on them and this can negatively affect our health

Even when we clean consistently, we often miss many places. Both because we don’t realize the need to clean and because we forget. Or simply because we don’t feel like cleaning anymore. But we rarely realise that these neglected places are where a lot of dust starts to accumulate. It then gets into the air and can have a negative impact on our health. So be consistent.

We forget many places

There are many places in every house or apartment that we forget while cleaning. And that can backfire. The moment we forget about these places, dust is released from them and settles around the apartment.


We bring home a lot of dirt in the form of sand, pebbles, and even dust on our shoes. So don’t forget the shoe rack when cleaning.


We should spend about eight hours a day sleeping. When you vacuum your mattress from both sides, you eliminate the amount of dust mites and your sleep will be healthier.

Baskets and dusters

Baskets and dusters are essential items for keeping any home clean. But hand on heart, don’t you forget about their dirty bristles while vacuuming? Yet every time we use these things, they release unnecessary dust particles that could have ended up in the vacuum cleaner.

Ventilation grilles

Ventilation grilles, hoods, hair dryers and other appliances that work on air circulation. Dust settles everywhere and continues to flow into your home. In addition, you can extend the life of electric appliances by keeping their grilles clean so they don’t overheat.


Yes, we shouldn’t forget about the speakers and other speaker systems we have for TVs, computers and other electrical appliances either. Dust remains embedded in the various crevices of these boxes. Take care not to damage them by reduced power or an unsuitable extension.


It’s a well-known fact that most people live by the computer with all that goes with it. They smoke, they drink, they eat, and the keyboard looks like it and has to be cleaned occasionally. But even the rest of you who don’t do any of those things can’t help the dust settled in your computer or laptop keyboard.


Dust also very often settles not only on curtains and drapes, but also on blinds shutters and window sills. Use a suitable bristle attachment and don’t forget these areas when vacuuming.

Powder, the most common allergen

It often causes:

  • Coughing, sneezing, runny nose, breathing difficulties
  • sore throat, headache
  • itchy eyes, restless sleep

Here is a sample of the biggest dust collectors that seem clean at first glance. We could add the bottoms and corners of drawers and cabinets, as well as houseplants. By vacuuming these inconspicuous places, you’ll soon find that the dust in your home has significantly decreased.
