Ah, dust. Microscoptic dirt-like specs that we see everywhere; littered throughout homes, and crowded places. Despite it being in abudance in a lot of places, many people don't pay much attention to dust due to its insiginifcance. In actuality, it may be more dangerous than you might think!

But to learn about what dust really is, we have to establish that it isn't really a "thing", per se. It's actually a collective term that encapsulates a variety of partciles that can collect in the home; mostly shed human skin cells.

Along with being unnatractive, dust brings a plethora of other problems into the home. Dust mites are microscoping living organisms that feed off of dead skin cells, and subsequently dust as well. And where dust is left, the things will follow. So what do they actually do?

First of all, many people are allergic to dust mites. Well over tens of millions of people will develop sympoms such as sneezing, runny ichy or stuffy noses, and red eyes as a result of itching them as they grow watery. Most people use medication, however that can propogate a whole new set of side effects; better to simply remove the dust. Dust mites also cause asthma, and asthma attacks, and in rarer cases, skin condition likes eczema.

Aside from dust mites, however, dust itself can contain all sorts of toxic components. Compounds such as rodent waste, pollen, bacteria, viruses and the sort can reside with the mixtures of dust. These can even lead to damage to the hormone systems and the brain!

Fortunately, getting rid of dust isn't too difficult. You can put dust-mite covers on pillows, mattresses and box springs, use pillows with polyester fibres instead of feathers, dust and vaccum at least weekly to remove buildup, use an air cleaner with a HEPA filter, or wash bedding in exceedingly hot water to kill dust mites.

Or you could just call us!
