    Hi, Debi,

    Any surface can collect dust, particularly in certain areas of the U.S.

    It's wise to vacuum these surfaces with the soft brush attachment, at least weekly.

    I don't have a problem with dust in the cracks. You could use a vacuum with a brush attachment about once a month if you were concerned or a Swiffer dust brush. I installed a shiplap product that overlaps. The cracks are small-about 1/4 inch.

  • Our shiplap walls have held up fine and we made sure to use a paint that was durable enough if we needed to wipe it down.

    I've never had an issue with them! If you do, you can always take a handheld vacuum to clean the cracks.
