Why is My House so Dusty all the Time?

One of the most obvious causes of a permanently dusty home is a lack of regular cleaning.

Lack of Regular Cleaning

Inadequate Sealing

Doors, windows, walls, and flooring that have gaps or cracks can let outside air into your house, carrying dust particles with it

HVAC System Issues

The quality of air moving in your home is strongly affected by the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.

High Humidity

A large amount of moisture in the air can encourage the accumulation of dust. In humid situations, dust tends to gather and settle more quickly.

Inadequate Vacuum Cleaner

Dust issues might become harsher if a vacuum is not properly maintained or is not effective. 

Shedding Pets

If you have dogs in your home with fur, their loss may contribute to higher levels of dust.

Outdoor Factors

The amount of dust inside your home may be affected by the atmosphere outside. Living close to busy highways might increase the amount of dust in your home.

Insufficient Air Circulation

Dust can more easily accumulate in stagnant air. By using ventilation systems and ceiling fans, you can make sure that your home has sufficient ventilation.

Carpets and Upholstery

Dust can be caught in carpets, rugs, and upholstery items. Replace carpets with hard flooring options and cover furniture with machine-washable coverings.

Outdoor Dust Entry Points

Dust from outside can be transferred inside by people and animals.The amount of outside dust that is brought inside can be reduced by using doormats at entry points.
