2 Dusting

Do not allow dust to accumulate on surfaces like furniture, fans, carpet, upholstery. They help germs to thrive and cause irritation to the respiratory system.

Make sure that the doors and windows are open when dusting to ensure that particles and germs do not resettle on other surfaces.
