What Is House Dust


Ever wonder what really is in the dust on the dresser on on that fan blade.


Rather than a single substance, house dust is a varied mixture of potentially allergenic materials. The particles seen floating in that shaft of sunlight may contain fibers from different types of fabrics; cotton lint, feathers, and other stuffing materials; bacteria; mold and fungus spores (especially in damp areas); food particles; bits of plants and insects; and other allergens peculiar to an individual home. You see dust is just not dirt.


Dust also may contain microscopic mites. Dust mites being the most common. These mites live in bedding, upholstered furniture, and carpets and every time we sit walk or move around some become airborne. Ordinarily, they would thrive in summer and die in winter. However, in a warm, humid house, they continue to thrive even in the coldest months.


They produce a great deal of waste. These waste products, which are proteins, actually provoke the allergic reaction. House dust mite allergy is the major year-round allergy in the world, though ragweed is more prevalent in the United States.
