Dust and the problems that it can cause

Dust is an inevitable part of life and it is made up of the dead skin cells that we constantly shed throughout the day as well as other matter that falls onto surfaces and floats around in the air. It can become troublesome for people with allergies and those who suffer from asthma. The systems that you can get from a Air con Gloucester company can help with the issue of dust as the air con system not only helps to provide you with cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter but it can also filter out air borne particles such as dust.


Dust is made up of the dead skin cells that we mentioned above as well as pollen, hair, fibres, soil and even mold spores which is why you don’t really want it to be hanging around in your environment and certainly not floating around in the air. It is thought that the average UK home produces around 40 pounds of dust every year which given that dust is so lightweight, is an incredible amount.

It is not only dust that can cause problems but also dust mites. These tiny little insects are so small that you can not see them with the naked eye. They are less than a millimetre in length and are transparent. The mites eat the dead skin cells that are found in dust and they will hang around in any areas that are high in skin cells such as sofas and beds as well as living in your carpets.
