Dust in the Home

Research has shown that a single home can accumulate up to 40 pounds of dust annually.

A lot of dust particles are not visible to the naked eye and despite regular cleaning, can continue to exist inside the house. Dust is a mixture of various things like human skin cells that are shed each day, paint particles, fabric fibres, sand and soil particles, bacteria, pollen, dust mites, pet dander and feathers, and mould spores to name a few.

Dust particles can lead to various types of ailments and illnesses especially in children, the elderly, or those with weak immune systems. Allergies, asthma, itchy skin and eyes, coughing, runny noses, sinus problems, eczema, and bronchial infections are the most common effects of dust in the house. 

Continued exposure of dust have serious consequences and can significantly impact the immune system.

It will not be possible to get rid of all the dust in your home at all times. However, adopting a few precautions can help minimise the amount of dust to a great extent. By doing so, you will definitely begin to see an improvement in the health of all members of your family. Here are some ways in which you can minimise dust inside your home. 

  1. Keeping the house free of clutter and cleaning it frequently will help bring down the amount of dust and this will in turn ensure better health for you and your family. 
  2. Practicing healthy habits such as eating at the dining table can help avoid food debris from spreading all around and decomposing which can harbour disease-causing germs
  3. Though frequent cleaning and vacuuming may seem like an endless chore, it will prove a healthy practice in the long run and you are sure to notice the difference soon.
  4. If you must have carpets inside your house, ensure that you wash them in hot water frequently—every week if possible. 
  5. Dusting your home with microfibre dusters regularly, washing beddings in warm water frequently, as well as vacuuming drapes and furniture are ways to eliminate dust in your home.
  6. Using an indoor air purifier can certainly help improve the quality of air inside your house and the quality of air you breathe into your body.
