Dust accumulates rapidly, which makes it feel as though the chore of dusting is never done. If you have a commercial building, your staff is able to dust all of the surfaces they can reach just fine, but what about the high places? Raised ceilings, ceiling fans, rafters, and ducts are all prime spots for build-up.
The Hidden Dangers of Dust
Dusting may seem like just another annoying task, but did you know that it can actually be exposing the people that come into your space to harmful chemicals? According to the Journal of Environmental Science and Technology, the numerous chemicals that have been found in dust have also been linked to significant illnesses and diseases. There was an analysis concluded from samples of indoor dust which found that there were concentrations of at least 45 different chemicals across the span of 14 states.
According to research scientists, you should clean the inside of your buildings regularly. This can prevent how much dirt and grime accumulate and how many chemicals get into human bodies. These chemicals generally find their way into the body by swallowing, breathing, or even absorbing dust particles through the skin.
Researchers at George Washington University in Washington, DC have found that the following are just some of the illnesses and diseases that come from dust:
- Respirators Infections
- Developmental Complications
- Reproductive Problems
