Age Old Question: Should I Dust or Vacuum First?

on Monday, 28 March 2016. Posted in Cleaning Tips and Advice

Dust First!

If you mat all entrances, inside and out, you'll cut dusting and vacuuming in half.

Once your matting is down, always DUST FIRST!

Some people will argue that if I dust first, then vacuum, it blows dust on everything I've dusted.

Trust me if your vacuum is in that bad a shape you're wasting your time doing either.

Good vacuums with a decent filter bag and clamps won't leak and spew dust over cleaned surfaces.

A vacuum must be maintained. If you dump the bag frequently you'll spend a little time emptying instead of a lot time wondering why the vacuum isn't picking up like it used to.

Dusting is scraping dirt. If you vacuum first, all this litter ends up on freshly vacuumed floor.
