What is house dust?
The type of dust your home has depends on the age and type of house you live in as well as what you keep in your home. The temperature and the humidity of your home also play an important part in the type of dust you have. The type of house dust also depends on how many people live in the house and if there are any pets around as well. Basically, house dust is an airborne mixture that could contain anything from human or pet dander, hair, dust mites, soil and plant material, fabric fibers, food particles, and more.

How can you reduce house dust?

In order to avoid allergies and respiratory problems, there are a number of things you can do to help limit the amount of house dust that you are exposed to. This includes:

  • Keeping your pets well-groomed to help reduce dander, preferably by grooming them on a porch or deck.
  • Use covers on your pillows, box springs, and mattresses that will prevent the release of allergens.
  • Clean all carpeting and upholstery on a regular basis. While you should clean your entire home regularly, carpeting and upholstery tend to get dusty much more quickly than other materials.
  • Have your ducts been cleaned by a professional? Your ducts are used in order to bring warm and cold air throughout your home. Because air is constantly being cycled through your home by way of your ducts, it means that dust is being carried through as well. This is also one of the reasons why you should replace your filters regularly.

Use allergens-proof bed covers. Keep your mattress and pillows in dustproof or allergens-blocking covers. These covers, made of tightly-woven fabric, prevent dust mites from colonizing or escaping from the mattress or pillows. Encase box springs in allergens-proof covers.

Whether you have health issues due to house dust or not, it’s best to do what you can in order to prevent a dusty house.
