  • By dusting every single day. My mom had to do this, as she had very bad dust allergies, so she kept a very dust-free home.

  • (and vacuuming every day too - forgot that in my first post!)

  • I dust all the time too. I vaccuum all the time and clean the vents. My family has allergies so, we have to work at it. There is a really expensive air filter you can get to help with it...

  • Change the filter in your heater. These things usually should be changed 2-4 times a year. This will help control dust. Also, consider getting houseplants and lots of them. Plants attract the dust so you need to duct them... but they clean the air. Also, just in case, don't smoke in the house or cook things that generate alot of smoke (like burning stuff, lol)>
