How to Deal with House Dust

It is rather annoying when you get home, tired from work or school, you get comfy,  then suddenly you start sneezing uncontrollably for some unknown reason. Rather than just kicking back and relaxing, you have to run down to the nearest convenience store to get yourself some anti-allergens. Oftentimes, this uncomfortable feeling is caused by an allergic reaction to house dust.

The common symptoms of house dust allergy include a runny or stuffy nose, itchy watery eyes and sneezing. What is worse is that if you are asthmatic, chances are, house dust will trigger an asthma attack, indicated by coughing, wheezing, tightness of the chest and shortness of breath, which could potentially be fatal.

The leading reason for having a huge accumulation of house dust, other than improper cleaning, is having a dirty home air filter in your air conditioner or heater. What most people don’t realize is that the air filter that comes with your air conditioner or heater is not permanent and needs to be replaced at least every three months or even monthly depending on the frequency of usage of the air conditioner or heater and the environment. The best way to avoid allergies is to use modern electrostatic furnace filter or air conditioner filter. 3M’s Filtrete air filters, for example, are designed to collect 90% of all large and micro particles that float in the indoor air. Aside from that, it also attracts allergens, bacteria and viruses to keep them out of the air.
