I'm the 1st owner of a new construction condo built in 2008. I moved here from an old home built in the 1940's that was too much maintenence for me to keep up with so I moved here relieved that there was zero maintenence (no roof leaks, cracking walls, lawns to mow, snow to shovel or centipedes the size of Maryland coming up from the basement) and my never ending dust war would be over, right?? Wrong! The dust here is even worse!!
I change my furnace filters every 3 months but I don't know what else I can do to get things to calm down. Is there a better filter than 3M? Every day there is grey film on everything that eventually turns to fluff and I am beginning to wonder about the dryer. It's new but cheap quality. I clean the lint catcher religiously but I still think it might be getting into the air too much. Short of having to spend thousands on a new washer/dryer (it's one unit together) is there anything else I can do?? I'm desperate to not live in a dust haven for the rest of my life. I have an Oreck air filter too that helps in my son's room. If I have to buy a new washer/dryer I will but looking to see if there's anything else I can do first. Thanks.
