In fact, dust may adversely affect the respiratory system, irritate the lungs, and may cause allergic reactions. Getting rid of the dust completely is not possible, but you can minimise the damage to your health. To do this, do not forget to do a wet cleaning regularly as most dust is accumulated on the furniture and fine ornaments.
