What is Indoor/Household Dust?

  • Dead human skin cells make up about 80% of indoor/household dust. Dust also contains hair, lint, animal dander, dust mites, pollen, mold spores, insect appendages in various states of decay, soil from outdoors, and often toxic chemicals. Until the carpet is vacuumed using a high-efficiency vacuum bag, these particles will remain in the carpet and enter the indoor air when they're stirred up.
  • To ensure you trap the most indoor dust it is essential to use quality vacuum bags and filters. Products that can efficiently filter particles in the .3 to 1.5 Micron range.
