Looking for tips to keep a cage dust-free

Turns out Nico had yet another episode of inflamed sinuses, and Iím concerned that his cage is really dusty. Since his first sinus infection Iíve been changing his poop papers pretty religiously, got an air purifier, and vacuumed his cage area more often. However, I realized that there are little books and crannies in his cage (corners, bars, rope perches) that need daily maintenance as well. Taking apart his cage entirely or hosing it off outside frequently isnít very realistic at the moment (I live in an apartment and taking apart his heavy cage takes quite a while) so Iím looking for tips on ways to maintain a dust-free environment on a daily basis. Iíve been using paper towels to dust his cage, but more effective tools would be great. Iím also on the hunt for dusty spots that Iíve been overlooking, so Iím open to suggestions on spots to watch out for.

Re: Looking for tips to keep a cage dust-free

Sorry to hear this.

I was going to suggest bringing the cage outside to hose it down. So, if this is not an option as you stated. Why not just wipe the entire cage down everyday with a damp cloth when he is out and about?
