Long Range Dusting with Mr. LongArm


Its spring time here in the Midwest, which means we’ll have near perfect temperatures for about a week before the muggy summer heat descends on us. Great spring weather means opening the windows up and cleaning the house after a long winter (unless you live in Arizona or something, in which case this article applies for anytime of the year). While there are many chores that need to get done once the weather turns warm, one that we frequently see people not commit enough time to is dusting. Many will just wipe down a few tables or dressers and call it good, but dust is everywhere, and leaving it on your fan or other high spots can be the cause of those sneezing attacks that we all so commonly attribute to allergies. Luckily, Mr. LongArm has a couple of dusting attachments that can make reaching those higher spots a breeze, especially when combined with our extendable poles.

And since then we have found all sorts of uses and attached all sorts of apparatus to our extension poles. Mr. LongArm is forever dedicated to optimizing human performance.
