Dust & Indoor Air Quality: What You Need to Know

Research by the American Lung Association, states that Americans are greatly affected by breathing in dust particles indoors. What most people don’t know, dust consists of dead skin cells, dust mites droppings and dust mite body fragments. Since dust mites feed on the dead skin cells, and more people now work from home, poor indoor air quality is likely affecting more homeowners than ever before. Surprisingly, online data also reveals that over 63% of American adults do not consider dusting inside their homes to be a priority. This is why indoor air quality testing is crucial. 

Dust is always present, and homeowners need to breathe better quality air. Luckily, Climate Control Company has solutions to minimize the impact of dust on our customers and improve their indoor air quality in Glenwood Springs, Vail, and Roaring Fork, CO.

The Negative Effects of Dust

Whatever is in your indoor air will get into your lungs. People may be affected by poor indoor air quality in different ways. Cold-like symptoms such as a runny nose, scratchy throat, red, itchy or watery eyes and persistent coughing are common. Fatigue, headaches, sleep disruptions and general malaise are also possible symptoms of poor indoor quality. Loved ones afflicted with respiratory illnesses, compromised immune systems and asthma will usually be the most acutely affected. Over the long term, constant exposure to dust may lead to the onset of chronic breathing problems.
