The answer could be both. Many homes experience excessive dust that can cause pollutants which can increase allergy reactions and decrease air quality. Homeowners try to stay on top of the this by replacing air filters frequently, scheduling regular maintenance, and even purchase expensive air filters just to hold back the dust. But it just keeps coming back.
The logical next step is duct cleaning right? Well maybe. Duct cleaning is a popular way to address dusty homes and in fact I read recently that 13% of Angies List members have regular duct cleaning. The keyword here is “regularly”. That’s right the dust in your duct work comes back after duct cleaning. This routine duct cleaning is not solving your problem.

Have you ever asked yourself where the dust is coming from?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the average home accumulates about 40lbs of dust per year. Where is this coming from, you clean the house weekly, your have good screens on your windows, you have your HVAC serviced and air filters regularly replaced, but you still see the build up on your intake vents, tables, etc.
Let me ask you, have you cleaned behind your walls lately? Of course not, right. But what if I told you that is where the dust could be coming from.
