Areas like under beds, table legs, room corners are usually not covered by simple brooming or vacuum cleaning. Dust and other dirty fibers accumulate in these corners and create dusty spots. Thus, in addition to regular cleaning – Make sure to clean corner areas at least once every couple of weeks.
3 – No Shoes = Dust-Free Interiors

So if you wish to prevent dust from entering your home, start with strictly following “No shoe” rule in your house.
