I bought a Furminator for my cat; it’s essentially a brush with a razor in it so you can cut out the underlayers of fur. I furminate him often to help catch the fur before it ends up all over!

I’m also considering getting a Roomba on Craigslist or something similar that I can run daily. I know it doesn’t do well with area rugs, so I’d still vacuum the house every week, but maybe the Roomba will help keep it under control?

I’d love to hear other people’s tips!

@edgebee:  How often do you change the filters in your air conditioner? I assume that would be different filters than your furnace? I would change those monthly as dust accumulates fast! We live in a very dusty house and have to change them frequently.

@edgebee:  I change my filters on my a/c furnace every month, and it helps

@edgebee:  OMG I feel your pain! Our house has a crazy amount of dust! FI is a heating and cooling guy, so our furnace and filter are kept in super good condition, and it does not help! Drives. Me. Insane. I’m hoping someone here has some good advice (other than never get dark wood furniture in a dusty house!! Grr!).

Put down a few area rugs in high traffic (and animal napping) areas to catch some of the fur so it’s not just floating around on the floor.  Brushing him at least weekly should also help cut down on the shedding.

We just moved out of an apartment that was so dusty, I couldn’t keep up. I too owned every “dust” cleaning product known to man and would still find crazy amounts of dust everywhere. I am looking for answers too, because I cannot have that happen in my new house! We have a cat and I brush her every other day.

Commenting so that I can follow this post.

Our house is a year old and SO dusty! Our ducts are clean, I change the furnace filter, etc. and I’m still dusting everything daily.
