Continued Excessive dust in home air

1

I'm having minor breathing issues and suspect the home air quality, which seems to be excessively full of particles/dust. The air quality is visually noticeable daily, regardless of basic cleaning/outside air steps take the day before.

Background: I bought the home last fall, it was a DIY 1700sq ft remodel built in CO in 1980 and the home inspection found nothing substantively wrong. It has central air - electric single unit AC/Heat Pump.

Just before the winter I had the attic insulated and sealed with cellulose. A short while later I started noticing the breathing issues and dust in the air. There is no HVAC in the attic, and it started getting cold around the installation time, so perhaps it's just a misleading coincidence.

I have replaced the HVAC filter several times and use one of the higher quality HEPA filters (rated for smoke particles). I had a company come in and clean the ducts. I have vacuumed, dusted, and had all the windows open on days 65F+ to...

DHAKA is rated as one of the most polluted cities in the world. Dust and dirt have become an integral part of our life. The media are vociferous about its health effects and the environmentalists of the country are quite vocal about the issue. The general people also feel greatly concerned about the health hazards of dust. The problem of dust gets aggravated during the winter season when there is no rainfall and the weather is dry. After a bout of rain, we feel better as there is no dust in the air. During the winter, among other things, construction woks gather momentum. The amount of dust that is produced during such construction works is enormous, more so because we hardly see construction sites duly covered. Dust particles mixed with the air make the surrounding areas of the projects almost...

Do you ever feel like you dust a lot, and when you finish dusting you can already see more dust? Well, there may be a cause for this excessive dust.

Don't get me wrong, every home has dust, and there isn't really anything you can do to prevent the production of it, but you can manage your dust and learn ways to more effectively remove it before it settles all over your furniture.

So what causes a home to be super dusty and what can you do to get ahead of it?

Well, below is a list of four common problems that lead to excess dust in a home, with explanations and solutions on how you can try to diminish the amount of dust that accumulates.

1. Air Filters

The first, and most likely, the cause of excess dust in your home is due to dirty or cheap HVAC Filters.

If your air filter rarely needs to be changed because it is always clean, that simply means it is not working properly, and the dust particles are slipping through the filter....

Dust, mold, and cigarette smoke. These are the allergies I was diagnosed with at age 5 after enduring one of those brutal skin prick tests across my entire back. NBD in the grand scheme of things versus, say, a peanut allergy, but to my 5-year-old self it was devastating.

Mold and cigarette smoke are fairly easy to control — if your parents were willing to quit smoking (this was the ’80s after all). But dust, that’s...

Having an excessive amount of dust in your home is one of the main contributing factors to poor air quality. Ridding your home of this dust can increase your indoor air quality dramatically. Here's how you can do just that:

Dusting
Normal methods of dusting can cause dust to recirculate into the air without actually being removed from the house. Instead, use an electromagnetic duster to pick the dust up and relocate it to the trash. You can also wipe dust away, but you will need a wet surface. For this you will need a VOC-free household cleaner to apply to dusty areas before wiping.

Vacuuming
It's important to remember that you should begin vacuuming after you have finished dusting. Any excess dust that is kicked up into the air will eventually settle elsewhere. You can suck up most of this dust if it lands on the floor by going over it thoroughly with the vacuum.

Air Duct Cleaning
Any dust that is swept into the air can be picked up by...

Do you like dust?

Of course not! No one does.

Having to put up with dust inside a home is not fun for anyone and no matter how much you dust or vacuum, it always seems to find its way back.

What you may not know is that dust is a combination of very fine particles that include dead skill cells, mold spores, pollen, pet dander, fibers, hair and more.

When it collects into dust bunnies, it becomes gross to look at and makes most of us want to go into a cleaning frenzy.

Fortunately, there several ways for how to reduce dust in home. Take a look at the tips below to find 7 of the simplest ways to keep your house dust free.

1) Change Your Air Filter Yearly

It’s surprising how often people forget to change the air filter in their central air conditioning unit. Once the filter becomes too dirty, it’s not nearly as effective at capturing dust and starts circulating it throughout your home.

This cheap filter replacement will ensure...

The number one irritant in the home is dust. Dust is made up of various particles dispersed in the air. At home, dust may contain other irritants, including pollen, dead skin cells, and animal hair. Controlling dust may be frustrating no matter how often you clean a space. And if you cannot eliminate dust completely from your household, we’ve listed out simple ways to ease dust in your home and maximize your dust control system:

How to Control Dust

Clean the Carpets Regularly

Did you know that the most common source of dust in the home is the carpet? Dirty, thick carpets, and rugs are a dust magnet. If you do not clean your carpets regularly, then you can expect a thick accumulation of dust in the home! If you have wall-to-wall carpeting, better remove it and replace it with smaller rugs instead. Rugs are much easier to clean than wall-to-wall carpeting. But if you do not want to remove wall-to-wall carpeting, then you want to increase the frequency of...

New home is very dusty inside. We just moved into a new home and the air vents blow dust when the AC is on. I live in a new suburb where home building and construction is still going on all around us. When we have the air conditioner on, the dust blows into the house. I have 2 young children and don’t want them sick. Plus our new home and new furniture is covered with dust and dirt. We are forced to vacuum the floors and carpets and dust everything daily. We have 2 air purifiers running 24/7 but they do not seem to help remove the dust. What can we do to reduce the dust from coming in through the vents?

New Home Has Excessive Dust Coming Through Air Vents – What To Check

You are getting excess dust and dirt in your home because of all the construction around you. Dirt and dust will be excessive while they are still building homes in your new suburb. This is most likely a temporary problem until all the construction on the homes around you are completed. Below we will...

No matter how often or how hard you clean, dust will continue to return. The question is how often and in what quantities? While some is normal, you shouldn’t be able to write your name on your coffee table two days after you’ve cleaned. If you have an excessive amount of this fine material in your McKinney home, read on for some great tips on how to get levels back under control.

What Is Dust?

Although there’s no particular set of ingredients, most of the fine film in your household is comprised of a combination of dead skin cells, dirt, pet dander, pollen, hair, fibers and other particulate matter.

How Dust Impacts an HVAC System

Heating – Because the particulates are so small, they’ll usually burn up in your furnace, but only in small quantities.The solution is to install a good quality air filter to trap these airborne particles, but beware. A dirty air filter can actually harm your furnace, forcing your equipment to work overtime to draw the air it...

I'm about to clean out my computer for the first time, but I'm a bit confused. Wouldn't using air to blow out dust just cause the dust to land in other parts of the PC? How do I 'really' get the dust actually out of my computer? And also, where would the best place to do this be? I'm live in an condominium so there's no garage or work area where I can afford to have dust flying everywhere. Would the bathroom work? Maybe just over the bathtub or something lol.

Thanks.

Something that I have tried that works quite well, is to suspend the case upside down, above the ground. Worst case, putting it on top of two spaced out chairs works. This way all the dust you spray out with the air, falls onto the ground so you can clean it up later. Also, heat sinks and such should come off, and be cleaned almost by hand. Tooth picks and paper towel are godsends for this. Don't forget to clean fan blades, as dust can get coated on them pretty bad,...

I have had the same problem for the past 4 months after living in the same townhouse for 10+ years. No real prior issue. But recently my vaccum has been picking up an abnormal amount of this gray dust, and computers and electronic equipment with fans have been collecting and plugging up with this stuff. And I have been forced to change the gas furance filter every month - using the highest premium available. One night with the lights out I turned on a flashlight to see nothing but solid dust in the air! The light beam from the flashlight was like a solid bar - star wars light saber, as the dust was so thick in the air!!

After thinking about what changed since 4 months prior, I have throughly cleaned the existing carpet, like I do about every year. I am now convinced the carpet backing and the carpet padding are deteriorating, and each further vaccuming is drawing up more of this super fine white/gray dust through the carpet. As in other posts by central AC system experts, I...

A bulk storage operator on Chicago’s Southeast Side has exceeded a federal threshold for emissions of toxic manganese dust, according to new air monitoring data published Monday by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The EPA’s Region 5 press office confirmed the findings from air monitors at S.H. Bell Co. in a statement sent to Chicago Tonight.

Air monitoring data collected at S.H. Bell from March 1 through June 30 show an average manganese concentration of 0.32 micrograms per cubic meter, which exceeds the EPA’s minimal risk level for chronic inhalation exposure to manganese of 0.3 micrograms per cubic meter, according to the EPA. The risk level is used to protect those who face regular exposure to industrial sources of manganese.

Manganese is a metal used in steelmaking that can affect brain and motor function at high exposures, and can even lead to neurological symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease, according to the EPA and other published...
