Wearing the protective mask for filtering the air around will keep you safe and going.

  3. Vacuum on regular intervals, if possible every two or three days. Vacuuming might just take a lot of time if is done right but here is the biggest advantage – it is perhaps the only procedure which will make sure that 70% of the free dirt or dust particles get absorbed so that you can breathe a clean and fresh air. Whether you are cleaning the sofa, the couch or the furniture and floor – just make sure that you have cleaned it thoroughly with the vacuum cleaner.

  4. Wash beddings every week. Ah! The washing too is a part of the cleaning. Not just the beddings, we recommend that if you are going to wash beddings, the curtains too be cleaned on a  regular basis. Curtains near the windows are often prone to dust and dirt. Thus to be on the safer side, we always recommend that the curtains and beddings be washed together on a regular basis. Just a quick tip -do not remove the beddings or the curtains or dust them without a mask on your nose and mouth.
