What are dust exactly
In a nutshell dust consists of particles in the atmosphere that come from various sources such as soil, dust lifted by wind or weather, and pollution. Domestic dust in homes, offices, and other human environments contains small amounts of plant pollen, human and animal hairs, textile fibres, paper fibres, minerals from outdoor soil, human skin cells, and many other materials which may be found in the local environment.
Human is a source for dusts
If you ever wondered why dust are perpetually found in your homes. The reason is because we are creating them eternally. Human skin cells contribute to dust or rather dust contains human skin cells. We, human shed 0.003 ounces of skin flakes every hour. This is a normal process due to our human self-renewing system. The old goes and new cells will form. Don’t panic, we are not some skin shedding reptile. You probably do not even realise your skin has renewed.
How to reduce dust accumulation
As there are human activities, it increases chances of allowing dust externally to enter our home or office. We open our doors to dusts due to our activities. Dusts are accumulation of plant pollen, hair, textile or paper fibres and even soil from outdoors carried in by wind.
