Particles in the air which settle (or can potentially settle) on surfaces are called “dust.”
After settling, dust particles may become airborne when disturbed. The health effects of airborne dust particles depend on the size and type of particles. Some particles may contain heavy metals, toxic materials, or fibers. They may be carcinogenic, allergenic, or relatively harmless. Environmental factors such as space and ventilation can determine the size of the particle. Indoor allergens are important because they are the major cause of asthma and/or allergic reaction with sensitized people.
If allergens are present in your home, the symptoms you suffer may have already given you confirmation, but a home allergy test can determine the source of those allergies. You can then make lifestyle changes and increase your comfort. Home testing kits work by testing the dust in your home for common indoor allergens. If you suspect that something in your home or office environment is causing an allergic reaction, a home test kit can help.
You can check the level of dust mite allergens in your home using this simple screening test, designed especially for home use.
