Q & A

Our house seems to be incredibly dusty and I’m at a loss as to what to do.  We have had our air ducts cleaned, gotten new air filters, cleaned thoroughly, and bought an expensive air purifier.  Despite all this, the house is still dusty and you can see all the dust floating around in the air.  Does anyone have any thoughts on how to deal with this?  I’m also concerned that this is not healthy for me and my family. :(  We don’t have hardly any carpets but we do have a dog that sheds a lot.

    • I’m not a pro,  but I’m wondering about your windows and the seal/weather stripping.  Can the dust be sneaking in that way?

    • Just live with it.  Dust isn’t going to kill you unless you‘re severely asthmatic.

      Pets are terrible dust generators.  If anyone in your house has dry flaky skin, that contributes to dust.  Windows that don’t seal well make a big difference.

    • The fact that you hard floors vs carpet just allows the dust to float around. carpet absorbs it.  I’m not a fan of carpet for that reason.... It’s the worst thing to have if you allergies or sinus issues. So like Tuliplady said just live with it.

      I dust and swifter the floors daily and move furniture and vacuum weekly. Not much else can be done that I know of tongue out
