I just vac daily, clean cage papers daily and wet wipe all surfaces regularly. Regular cleaning and air purifiers are how most of us keep dust to a minimum.

Definitely a case of “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”...daily maintenance may sound like a lot; but becomes routine, and is sooooooo much easier than tackling what it could quickly escalate to if done sporadically or even intermittently:scared3::mop:

I'd suggest you mist the cage with water & wipe it down. That would prevent anything from going airborne. Wear a mask too. If you do this daily it shouldn't take long & will prevent you from having any major allergy attacks.
