Commercial & Residential High Dusting: What Is It & Is It Really Necessary?

1 Aug2018
High Dusting

Look up. Whether you are in a commercial office building or in your own home, chances are that there are areas you can’t see that are a bit dusty. This is a job for a professional high dusting team. High dusting is just what it sounds like: dusting in high or hard-to-reach places that the eye cannot see. All those little nooks and crannies—near window coverings or ledges that are out of reach—are just screaming to be cleaned, and there are so many reasons why they need to be cleaned.

Why Remove Dust in Those Hard-to-Reach Places?

There is a multitude of reasons why you should remove dust from high or hard-to-reach places; the most significant is the good old dust mite! Dust mites, due to their very small size and translucent bodies, are barely visible to the naked eye. Dust mites feed on flakes of human skin, animal skin, and mold. The average life cycle of the dust mite is 10 to 19 days, and some dust mites can live up to 70 days after reproducing—think of all of those dust mites reproducing in your office building and your home!

Dust mites lay approximately 60 to 100 eggs each in their five-week lifespan. Approximately 2,000 fecal particles are released from a dust mite that has a lifespan of 10 weeks. It is absolutely a job for professionals to get rid of dust mites for health reasons; they produce an enzyme that persists in their excrement that aggravates allergies, with symptoms like wheezing and sneezing. An extremely severe case of dust mites can aggravate skin conditions as well.

Most office buildings and homes also keep humidity at 45% as this helps keep dust mites at bay. A dehumidifying system is imperative as well. Let’s discuss what can be done with the power of high dusting.

Our High Dusting Method

It’s all in the technique and equipment when it comes to high dusting. Professionally trained cleaners have an arsenal of equipment and the know-how to get the job done right; equipment such as extension poles, compressed air, and other high dusting equipment are just a few of the pieces of equipment that cleaners use.

Here are a few areas that high dusting pros can successfully clean:

  • Air conditioning and heating vents
  • Lighting fixtures
  • Fans
  • Speakers
  • Or anything else out of reach

In the daytime, it is often easier to see these areas, but when working in the evening—when most high dusting is done—there can be challenges. Most of them stem from not being able to see the dust when the lighting is not ideal. Many times, responsible contractors will bring their own high-powered lighting when needed. Rest assured, if you are hiring a professionally trained high dusting team, they will have the equipment they need, day or night, to tackle your dust and dirt in those high places.
