Where does dust come from? Some comes from outside air (especially during dry weather), and some from what we track in. But most dust comes from us! Each of us sheds about 100 pounds of skin a year.
Some house dust can stay airborne for up to 5 months. Common vacuum cleaners spread about 90% of the dust around, trapping mainly what the human eye can see. Finer particles (less than 3 micron in size) are absorbed right into our blood.
Every day we breathe up to 3 tablespoons of dust, chemicals and dust mite feces.
With 80,000 household chemicals, dander, dust and more is it any wonder so many people are not well?
Vehicles all have air filters in order to protect their engines, we filter our drinking water and wash our food, but we typically do little to ensure the air we breathe is safe!
