Early Hallowe'en

The most awkward space in the house to vacuum is the flight of service stairs that is also the most badly lighted part of the structure. I happened to climb them the other night when I was carrying an LED flashlight, and I was appalled by the state of the floor.

I will add a hiker's LED headlamp to the cleaning kit. That kind of task lighting should improve every job. Dust is a dry mess but an insidious threat: it abrades the floor with every step, holds humidity against surfaces to set up a cycle of deterioration that produces pitting, and it supports allergies and pests. I make the most of my cleaning efforts by putting a fresh HEPA filtration bag into the handheld vacuum that suffices for my interior -30-
