Pesticides

More pesticides are found in house dust than in the outside air. Measurable levels of up to a dozen pesticides have been found in the air inside homes.

Lead & Arsenic

We track in outdoor contaminants, including lead and arsenic, which can settle into the layers of dust and re-circulate in indoor air if disturbed.

Dust Mites

Dust mites feed on human skin flakes and are found in mattresses, pillows, carpets, upholstered furniture, and other soft items.

Mold & Bacteria

Household dust contains up to 1,000 different species of microbes, with tens of millions of individual bacterial cells in each gram.

Indoor Air Pollution

The air inside the average home is up to five times more polluted than the air outside.

Harmful Chemicals

Dangerous pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers are tracked into our homes. These poisons can cause adverse health effects.
