dreamstime_xxl_27996440We’ve all seen sunshine in a dusty room. It’s shocking how much dust lives in the air at any time, and amazing we can be as comfortable as we are with all of it floating around. Depending on how allergic you are, you might not be comfortable at all! With all the dust in the air in the first place, any increase can really affect your quality of life. If you’re experiencing more sneezing, coughing, and sickness, your home’s dust level needs to be professionally addressed. You don’t need to live with the dust!

In in our last blog, we explored two reasons why the dust levels in your home may be increasing, including leaky ductwork and walls. However, those aren’t the only sources of trouble. Today, we’re going to finish with two more common reasons why people start having dust issues in their own homes.

Old, Dirty Heating System

  • Badly-maintained heating systems are massive dust sources. Filters get clogged, ducts suck in dust, and every fall, people turn on their heating systems only to get besieged by dust. If you can’t remember the last time your heating system was tuned up, you could be in for a rough cold season. This is especially true when it comes to forced-air systems. Furnaces and ductwork should be consistently cleaned and maintained in order to keep you healthy.

New Pets

  • If your home’s dust level has increased, mentally check over any changes in your home. New pets are a common issue. Not only do they produce dust and dandruff, they track it in. Of course, you track dust in, too. The increase can make a difference, though! By taking the time to groom your pet more, you can lessen the issue. If your heating system is dusty and dirty, it doesn’t really matter how much you groom your pet, so make sure you contact us to get everything checked out. Not only will it make you breathe easier, you’ll enjoy peace of mind knowing your HVAC systems aren’t blowing tons of dust around your home.
