Dust bunnies are not as a fluffy and adorable as they sound; they are in fact clumps of dust and dirt that hide in corners and under your furniture! Before you can attempt to get rid of dust bunnies, you need to understand what they really are. Dust bunnies are large clumps of dust and debris. They include dead skin cells, hair, pet hair, clothing lint, spider webs, dirt and other contaminants. They all join together (via static electricity) to form one giant ball of dust.
Dust bunnies like to collect in areas that don’t get cleaned on a regular basis – such as the corners of rooms, ceiling fan blades, Ac filters and underneath beds and furniture. You know one when you see one – that clump of dirt and dust that floats around your hardwood floors, congregating in the corners and making your home look unclean and unkempt.
These giant clumps of dust aren’t only unattractive – they can also be harmful to your health. Everyone is impacted by the effects the dusty clumps have on indoor air quality. But people with allergies, asthma or other upper respiratory problems are the ones that seem to suffer the most. Accumulations of dust can eventually clog your air filters and land in your electronics causing things to overheat. Dust bunnies also seem to attract and trap dust mites and other nasty parasites!
