Most Homeowners are surprised and alarmed when they discover the components and potentially harmful substances that are part of dust:
Plain Old Dirt – Microscopic particles of dirt and minerals, along with paint lakes and other materials tracked or blown into your home is a large component of dust.
Skin Particles – Tiny flakes of skin are constantly being shed by humans and pets in your home. You don’t see them, but there are millions of these particles in dust. When they come from pets, they’re called pet dander, and many people are allergic to this material.
Droppings from Dust Mites – Every home has dust mites, living in all the fabrics and crevices in the home. They’re microscopic in size. They feed on the skin flakes mentioned above, then excrete tiny fecal pellets. Millions of these, which are potential allergens, are in your house dust.
Fibers – Everything made of cloth or paper sheds tiny fibers, some large enough to see in bright sunlight. They make up much of those “dust bunnies” you find under furniture. These fibers also accumulate in your air ducts.
Molds and Fungi – These primitive plants reproduce through airborne spores. The spores that accumulate in air duct dust are constantly re-circulated in your home, and are a major source of allergies.
Microscopic Bacteria – There are millions of bacteria in every home, and even on our skins. It doesn’t matter how well we clean; they’re still there. Most are harmless or beneficial, but some cause diseases.
Oily Smoke Residues – Smelly oils and microscopic particles in smoke also accumulate in your home and air ducts. The oily residues from smoking, cooking, and fireplaces make up part of the sticky film in your air ducts that traps dust.
