Control Dust in Your Home

Why Control Dust in Your Home

We can agree that it can be difficult to control dust in your home. Dust occurs naturally and circulate throughout any household. With all homes being different in size, it is up to each individual homeowner to determine how quickly dust accumulates and how often you should clean (hint: the more often the better.)

Allergies and other respiratory illnesses can also become worse through prolonged exposure to dust. If not taken care of, this debris concentration can lead to harmful air flow in your home.

Let’s explore methods to prevent this and control dust in the home:

Air Duct Cleaning to Control Dust in Your Home  –

A build-up of dust in the ductwork is one of the major reasons for reduced efficiency and a rise in household energy costs. 

  • Filters

    -Any system cleaning will begin with changing the filter. We recommend homeowners replace filters every two to three months by the homeowner in between professional cleanings.  If there has been construction, renovations or there are pets in the home you will want to replace more frequently.

  • Vacuum

    -Next, a certified technician will perform an air duct cleaning. This is done to dislodge and gather dust, as well as, other allergens and contaminants.

  • Control Dust in Your Home with a Chemical Application

    – After the vacuuming process. A biocide spray is applied to all surface areas to prevent any organic growth among the dust for months.

  • Physical Inspection

    – The physical integrity of the ductwork can become compromised at certain points throughout the home. This can allow for outside air or unfiltered air to pass through the system and can lead to more dust in the house. If you see a lot of lint or dust gathered around the vents and filters, this is a sign that there may be a leak.

POSSIBLE DANGER: Many furnaces have open flames and conductors that push heated air through the ducts. A build-up of dust in this area in or around the flames could lead to a potential fire.  Ensure your furnace and home remain safe by having inspected yearly.

Carpet Cleaning – A Key Way to Control Dust in Your Home

Having carpet is one of the best ways to control dust in your home. It is easier for air to push dust from one area to another on smooth surfaces, where carpet actually traps the dust in its place. You may have noticed this in certain rooms with wooden floors where a great deal of dust accumulates under furniture.

Weekly House Cleanings –

Another great tip to control dust in your house is to buy the right tools. We know it’s important to have healthy and sanitary cleaning habits. But, having the correct tools can facilitate the process of controlling dust in your home. Using a high-powered vacuum and microfiber sweepers will help you grab dust better.

Controlling the Indoor Climate

The major contributor to the overall dust in one’s home are flakes from dry skin. For example, if you live in a low-humidity environment you run a higher risk of having more dry skin. This is why we recommend controlling the climate in your home. These types of environments increase humans and pets likelihood of having dry skin.
