Could Something in Your House Dust be Triggering Allergies or Worse?

The indoor environmental quality (IEQ) professionals at Clark Seif Clark provide dust allergen and mold testing services.


WEBWIRE – Thursday, February 07, 2013

Most people have experienced sneezing, a running nose or itchy eyes while cleaning activities are going on in their home or office.  These conditions are often caused by exposure to airborne dusts that are often times full of allergens.  Exposure to this same dust can even trigger asthma symptoms in some people. 
 
Franco Seif, President of Clark Seif Clark (CSC), an indoor air quality (IAQ) and environmental consulting firm shared his thoughts about indoor allergens and dust.  He reported, “House dust can contain a number of different allergens.  These aeroallergens can even interact with other harmful air pollution to worsen various respiratory diseases in some people. In addition to allergens, house dust in some circumstances may also include lead, primarily from deteriorating lead-based paints in older homes, and even asbestos fibers in some older properties.”
 
Mr. Seif listed the following common indoor allergens found in house dusts:
