Atlanta Area: Fixing Indoor Dust

Indoor dust buildup can be aggravating but the good news is that this problem can be solved. Here’s our advice on how to help control dust in your home.

Simple Dust Solutions

Do the simple things to prevent dust in your home. Keep your windows closed. Vacuum regularly. Dust everything often. Have Empire Heating and Air Conditioning check your HVAC system’s ductwork. Keep upholstery, drapes, and other dust-catching items washed and clean. Make sure the doors and windows are tight and properly insulated.

Dust Test Recommendation

You can also try a little dust test. Keep your home completely closed-off for a day or two, after vacuuming, cleaning, and dusting really well. Then check around for buildups of dust in various places inside. If you find some that quickly, there is a good chance that it has entered via your HVAC system. Dust from outside sources in the home is usually an indication of negative pressure, which is drawing dust inside. Duct leakage can aggravate and even cause this negative pressure.
