Not only is the dust that is floating, settling, and building up in your home terrible for your health, but it is also home to more than 100,000 dust mites. In fact, it is estimated that around 40,000 dust mites can live in just 1oz of dust. According to Hughes Environmental the average household builds up around 40 lbs of dust each year.
Did You Know? 40 lbs of dust = 640 ounces of dust therefore if around 40,000 dust mites can live in just 1 ounce of dust you may be living with 40,000 x 640 = 25,600,000 (25.6 Million) dust mites yearly.
