    I have a powerful Amcor ioniser which I bought in the 80s when living in Beckenham. I lent it to my Mother who smoked, and within a month there was 'marmite' dripping down the walls behind it. Yuch.

    Yesterday I bought a S/H Kirby vacuum cleaner, very expensive when new, but as good as a Dyson, (which I think overrated and cheaply built), and will last a life time, the Dyson about 3 years.

    I used to know a salesman for Kirby. Back in the '80s you were looking at a grand for the cheapest model.

    Ionisers don't actually clean the air, they just give any give particulates a negative charge, which makes them attract to a nearby surface.
    Thats why the smoker above got "marmite" on the wall...it was just tar in the air being ionised!
    I've struggled with excessive dust for quite a while now...the only solution really is to vacuum more often and do bit of damp dusting.
    If you can't do it yourself, just get a cleaner. A couple of hours a week at minimum wage is only 20.
    Once you're on top of it the dust is controllable.
    Just my two penneth worth.

    These new "Swiffer" dust mops seem to work well. I mean, they are still manual, but work better than the old damp clothe or using furniture polish on everything. My ex used furniture polish until it was piled up on the tables! Drinks would stick to it! But, with a Swiffer on its wand, a quick pass over my gear once a week or so keeps it fairly dust free.

    But that's why ancient ruins are always 30 feet underground! They stopped dusting and it eventually covered them up!

    What I need is a cleaner, about 30, wearing black satin waitresses clothing to come and do some cleaning for me.

    Dust ain't gonna clean itself!

    My home can get bad (2 cats don't help) but I usually hoover once a week the main areas and everything else about once a fortnight. It's annoying because cat hairs get everywhere and it can look messy again within 48hrs but I refuse to hoover more than once a week. I dust my gear every 2 weeks, only takes 10 minutes and while I can't get to the wires at the back, a bit of dust build-up there is no big issue imo, long as the actual gear is clean. I usually dismantle my rack once a year and give it a thorough clean though.

    I'm more worried about dust bunnies building up inside anything with vents. My older Marantz amp is quite dusty inside and I haven't tackled it yet because I'm not sure the best way to do it.

    Have a cat too and I agree they don't help when trying to keep dust free.
    I use Flash wipes on my furniture and electricals, looks very nice when it's freshly done too.
    You'll get a slow build up of dust but will take a couple of weeks before you'll need to do it again.
    Keeping on top of it is the key
