Is your house covered in a layer of dust? Dusting is one of those cleaning jobs you probably should do every week or so, but time gets by and suddenly it’s been 3 months. If you don’t have time to clean (or all that dust trigger your allergies), your best bet is to hire a cleaner to do your dusting. They’ll dust all your surfaces, from furniture and appliances to window sills and kickboards. You might even see your reflection on the countertops by the time they’re done.
You’ll find plenty of experienced cleaners on Airtasker who are highly proficient at dusting. Simply post your task, choose your preferred cleaner, and they’ll show up to dust whatever items and areas you need.
When you hire a cleaner to do your dusting via Airtasker, they come covered under our insurance policies.
If your house seems more dusty than usual, it could be because of the weather (dry conditions and wind), nearby construction, a recent dust storm, or some dusty belongings you’ve brought inside. Most dust, however, is brought in from outside sources.
A dusting service that includes all areas of the home will take around 2-3 hours to complete. A quick surface dust may take as little as 20 minutes, especially when done as part of a general domestic cleaning service.
Your cleaner will dust all surfaces from top to bottom, ensuring that dust isn’t spread to clean surfaces. The exact inclusions depend on what you need dusted, though. Here are some of the most common dusting services:
Furniture and ornaments easily collect (and show) dust. Your cleaner will ask if you want them to dust under or around any objects on your furniture. If they’re dusting under items, they’ll start by removing anything on top of your desks, drawers, tables, and other furniture, before removing dust with a damp cloth. If they’re dusting around items, they’ll use a feather duster to lightly remove dust from the surface (including ornaments) without disturbing anything. Next, they’ll use a duster to wipe behind and under furniture to remove any cobwebs. They’ll also dust shelves and wipe down window sills.
Ceilings and walls may not collect much dust, but they do attract cobwebs and small insects. Your cleaner will gently dust surfaces, spot-checking for cobwebs in common areas, like cornices and behind doors. They’ll use a feather duster to remove dust from any wall hangings, especially the tops of photo frames. Finally, they’ll dust over skirting boards or baseboards to ensure dust does not settle there.
Most blinds need regular dusting, but especially horizontal Venetian blinds or interior shutters. Blind cleaning involves moving the blinds so they’re fully exposed by tilting them and/or fully closing them. Your cleaner will dust them using a damp microfibre cloth, wiping from the top blind, down to the bottom. Next, they’ll tilt the blinds in the other direction to repeat the process on the other side.
If you’ve just finished renovating a room or your whole home, it’s very likely that you need everything dusted to remove sawdust, plaster dust, and more. This is best done before vacuuming to ensure all the dust has settled onto the floor. Your cleaner will start from the top down, dusting ceiling fans and vents, before dusting any trinkets and display items. They’ll dust over electronics and appliances before wiping benchtops, tabletops, and skirting boards.
