5 Reasons Why Dust is Accumulating In Your Home
When it comes to dust, it can be a big hazard for your family's respiratory health and the overall look of your home. Sometimes you'll find that no matter how much you clean, there's just dust accumulation that you can't seem to get rid of. Here are five of the most likely culprits that you're dealing with.
Your Ducts Are Dirty
If you have a centralized HVAC system, then you likely have ductwork running throughout the entirety of your home. Over time, these ducts can accumulate airborne debris which can build up into a thick layer of dust. As you continue to run your HVAC unit, this dust will simply recirculate throughout your entire home. A duct cleaning from an HVAC professional is a great way to get rid of this debris build up in your ductwork.
Your HVAC Maintenance Is Overdue
Apart from cleaning out your ductwork, the interior components of your HVAC system will need to be cleaned out as well. An HVAC professional can help you do this or you can do so on your own if you're familiar with your system components. Either way, just make sure that you're doing twice-annual cleanings at the minimum for your system.
Dirty filters can be a likely culprit for unwanted dust accumulating in your home. These filters should be changed out at least once every three months. If you have pets or small children, you may find that you need to replace your filters more often than the manufacturer's recommendation. It's best to replace your filters when you can no longer see through them.
Your Home Needs An Air Purifier
Depending on the age and type of heating and cooling system that you have, you may find that it simply isn't up to the task of handling the filtration in your home. You may need to invest in a whole-home air purifier that stops the smaller particles from passing throughout your home.
You May Need A HEPA Vacuum
The last reason that your home may be accumulating dust is that your current vacuum cleaner simply can't handle it. An ineffective vacuum cleaner won't pull dirt and debris out of your carpets. It's best to opt for getting a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter as it will suck up more debris than other types of vacuum cleaners.
