How To Keep Dust Out of Your Closets

Store Clothes In Your Closet, Not Dust

Household dust is made up of small elements that may look harmless. These particles can contribute to bigger problems as they contain nasty components like dust mites, pollen, toxic chemicals, and dust mite excrement. This material can cause major discomfort by triggering allergies or potentially worsen serious illnesses.

The first step to a clean closet is to declutter and organize your space. For example, if you live somewhere with changing seasons storing out of seasons clothes in airtight totes can help prevent a dust infestation. Keeping shoes off the floor with a shoe rack and putting shirts in a box or drawer rather than stacked up on a shelf can also help decrease dust.

Unfortunately, there is no escaping dust and no extent of cleaning and organizing can get rid of it. But it is important to do your best to wipe down closet surfaces completely and routinely to reduce the amount of sitting dust on your belongings. A clean closet is a major contributor towards a better bill of health. For additional information, please review the below infographic.
