why is there so much dust in my room

If your house is an old one, it can be the cause of a lot of dust, as timber and paint etc dry out. If your house is located in a windy area, the wind will carry with it a lot of dust. Is there insulation in the ceiling which might be beyond its use-by date? Are the carpets very old - if so, both it and the underlay might be in need of replacing - they will throw up a lot of dust every time you walk on it. If you don't have a lot of lawn or gardens, you won't get much protection from dust. If you live in or near an industrial area, or where there are busy roads, you'll get a lot of dust. If the house is build up on stumps, with just dirt underneath, you might get little wind eddies under there which throw up a lot of dust. Is there a large construction site in the area somewhere, which could be throwing up a lot of dust? Remember, dust can travel hundreds of miles, so take note of wind direction and see where it might be coming from.


Also, if you have that much dust, make sure to clean the backs of refrigerator and other electrical appliances on a regular basis, or you may have a potential fire-danger. And if you use a clothes-dryer a lot, that could definitely be a cause. Try hanging clothes outside to dry and see if it makes a difference. Also check that your vacuum cleaner is working properly. The brushes might be clogged, the fanbelt may need changing, the dust-bag may need emptying more often, or it may simply be an inefficient design, spreading more dust than it collects.
Dust on everything has to do with your location. An air conditioner can help you keep your windows closed. If you have a central heating furnace, call in. Dust on everything has to do with your location.


An air conditioner can help you keep your windows closed. If you have a central heating furnace, call in the techs to clean your furnace and filter, but also have them clean your furnaces ducting and venting, as a lot of dust can accumulate in these air delivery systems. If the dust is every where, but just in your room, and you have central heating furnace, it could be only the air delivery system ( ducting ) into your room is very dirty. If you see copious amounts of dust only when you vacuum the carpet and no where else, then it is very likely your room is infested with dust mites and so what you see when you vacuum is dust, dust mites, and most of it being the shedded skin from the dust mites. Vacuum 14 days later again, and if again there is copious amounts of dust in the shag carpet, it is the shedded skin of dust mites.


They shed their skin every 10 days or so as they grow, similar to the way a snake sheds it s skin. How do I know? I have them as uninvited guests. Its amazing the amount I vacuum up every 2 weeks, just in my bedroom, a dust ball about the size of a large cantaloupe. But the surrounding furniture and table tops do not have evidence of much dust at all. What can we do? We had the shag carpet in the living room and dining room removed and replaced with hardwood flooring. Later on we will do the same in the bedrooms. But for now it doesn t bother us much. You can t see them, other than their skin. We don t have an allergy to them. They don t make us itch, but the wife still wants the long shag carpets out. So if your amazed at the amount of dust coming out of your carpet on a regular basis, now you know why.
