Dust and Allergies

~ Dust ~

A Hidden Cause For Many Allergies

Have you dusted your home today?

The chances are that if you wipe a finger across a certain household surface that you will come into contact with dust. Just by looking around you, you will find the stuff everywhere.

What is Dust?

Previously it was considered that the dust particles came from our dead skin, but now it is proven that the household dust is a blend from the clothing fibers, animal dander, food particles, carpet fluff, and the dirt from the outdoors. Every time that we open our door or window, we also let airborne debris, soil particles, and pollen get in. Additionally, we mustn’t forget about the dust coming from all the make-up products such as powders.

Is dust dangerous?

Sounds ridiculous but it`s true, dust particles can be dangerous for your health. Dust is the perfect breeding ground for all sorts of insects and allergens.

  • Dust mites are small beings that cannot be seen with the eye but only with a microscope and they actually feed on the dust. Since you can`t see them, you won`t even know that they live in your home. They can settle into the mattress that you sleep on, deep within your carpet, your curtains, and their number can increase as much as a few thousand to millions. If you discover an object infected with dust mites the best way to kill them is to freeze the item or wash it with hot water. These tiny creatures are hazardous because their droppings can carry airborne illnesses or diseases.

Allergic Reactions

Sometimes having too much dust in your home might be the direct cause of some allergic reactions. Common signs are a runny nose, often sneezing, red and itchy eyes, coughing, and skin irritation. Keeping your home clean and dust-free is the number one step in prevention against common allergies.

How to keep your home dust-free?

  1. Use the right vacuum

If you want to get rid of all the dust particles suction alone is not enough. If you want high-quality results you need to use a vacuum cleaner with a powerful agitator such as the ProTeam Vacuums. The company itself is highly innovative always working on improving their models in terms of being even lighter in weight, ergonomic to use, quick, efficient, and powerful. They are the perfect solution when it comes to getting rid of the excessive dust.

  1. Organize your closets

Try boxing and bagging all of the clothes since they are constantly shredding fibers that tend to flutter around with you opening your closet`s doors. The clear plastic containers are the best since you can see the content through them.

  1. Change your bedding every week

Since we do spend a lot of amount in our bed they are collecting a lot of dead skin and dust hence why it is so important to change them at least once a week.

What are HEPA filters and their importance?

HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) is an already well-known filter held accountable for its superhero abilities to capture even the slightest particles of dust, dander, and other common allergens. This is vital when it comes to fighting the allergies and their unbearable symptoms.
