My house sucks. I swear it sucks in every piece of dust on the planet. It's more effective than my vacuum cleaner for bringing in the dust. The house was built in 1905 and is very charming, but I cannot keep up with the dust! Any recommendations out there? (Already gonna buy the Dyson vaccum!)

Please Please, my house in a 1910 house and suffers the same problem. If you get any ideas please be sure to share. Maybe we should write a book. jill

Ours isn't far behind - ours was built in 1927 - but we did find out that the new furnace has cut down on some of the dust - but don't live in Vegas or it wouldn't matter what you cleaned with - you start at the front and before you even get to the back - the front is dusty again.

If you refer to my lengthy post on the other thread, I talk about having bought the entire vacuum/air filtration system from Healthmor and I honestly don't know how I lived without it. We have two air filtration machines, they are fairly small and very efficient. I believe each one is meant to service 1200 sq feet. Our house is actually new, but we live in a growing area so during the Summertime, there was always dust and dirt blowing in from outside and I thought I was going to lose my mind. On top of that, I have 7 indoor pets (see previous thread) and they leave plenty of hair and dander to drive a normal person to insanity.

The vacuum and air purifiers have totally changed the way our home smells, looks and feels. It's amazing. I was VERY skeptical about air purifiers altogether and very skeptical about this entire system (especially since it was SO expensive), but honestly, it's everything it promises to be.

Here are my couple of testimonial examples:

We have three cats and my husband's sister and father are EXTREMELY allergic. We keep their cat box in the basement and they have a catdoor in the basement door. When we have company that is allergic, we lock the cat door to keep them downstairs. It used to be that we could lock the cats up 24 hrs ahead of time and vacuum everywhere, but my two relatives STILL got stuffy noses and red eyes when they visited. Since we got the Healthmor system, they've never gotten so much as a sniffle again.

Secondly, I have a flat top glass stove and it's black. It's beautiful but used to collect dust like you can't imagine. We run our Air purifier on a very quiet sleep mode at night and on a regular (more noisy) mode when we are gone during the day. I swear to you, there is hardly ever dust on my stovetop. So, my parents got the same type of stovetop and my dad was complaining about how it showed dust all the time. I took one of my air purifiers over to his house and he kept it on sleep mode for a week. Then I took it back home and he got mad at me. He said he could definitely tell a difference & he wanted me to bring it back. I told him to get his own

Anyhoo, if you can bring yourself to shell out the dough (or use a financing option) then you'd be crazy not to have this system.

Healthmor retails through different places depending on your location. I believe you have to call them and give them your location for them to find a retailer near you. In my case, the retailer's name is "Air Doctors". Healthmor's site is

So there's my little schpeel about that.

Happy dusting!

I've heard of those, and saw the company at a home show - I would get one if we ever get a house! They're supposed to really cut down on allergy/sinus problems too, that's my big reason for wanting an air-filtration system.

Here's a link about controlling dust, don't know if all of it is plausible.
