Dust in an average U.S. house contains more than 5,000 species of bacteria and more than 2,000 types of fungi! A study on dust and indoor air quality was conducted on 1200 homes by the Univ. of Colorado at Boulder and North Carolina University and they found that our indoor dust was more than just dirt.
How does all this dirty dust get into our living spaces? What's the best way to get rid of dust? One great way to reduce the amount of dust in indoor living spaces is to seal leaky ductwork . Yes! Dust, mold spores, and other contaminants can enter houses through leaks and cracks in the duct work. Most air ducts runs through attics, garages and basements where unhealthy air is drawn in to the HVAC system.
