Dealing With The Red Dust Storms in The Land Down Under
Dust in Melbourne can build up from the surfaces of roads, pavements and driveways, causing havoc for the home. Warm, dry weather takes the moisture out of top soil and leaves it liable to blow away in dust clouds over flatland. The dust collects around buildings and addresses making the cleaning of ducted heating and cooling systems extremely important for letting fresh air into the homes.
Instead of brushing the dust away, where it can collect elsewhere and come back, it should be taken away from the property before it dries or marks paintwork. Dust carried overland by the wind at high speed and can leave dirty marks on white paintwork. The walls as well as interiors is a must to create a good first impression for guests or future property buyers coming up driveways to view your address. This may also mean re-painting badly marked areas and considering other colours which won’t show up top soil quite as badly. Such wall coverings may be terracotta or taking plaster back to leave brickwork exposed. Yet when the possible purchasers enter your property, they shouldn't be repelled by bad smells coming out from a poorly maintained air conditioning system. This is why, if your property is on the market, you should arrange a ducted heating servicing along with the lease cleaning service which comes with every relocation.
Red soil is synonymous with Australia, but not a common feature in every state and less so in cities or concrete jungles. However, trucks carrying cargo through the outback can bring red soil into depots and deposit dust around cities, so this is worth bearing in mind wherever you live. Most dust stuck onto walls in the humidity can be brushed off gently, but be careful not to remove dirt with wire brushes as this will also take off paintwork or wallpaper. Instead lightly use a soft material duster to minimise the costs of repainting. Avoid using water as this will just smear the dirt and leave a stain where you have cleaned around the dust. Else, a domestic cleaning and air conditioning service in Melbourne is your best bet.
