You might as well start itching and scratching right now.
Roll over mold—-you can’t begin to compete with household dust—-except in the sense that you are part of the makeup of dust.
On a recent inspection I had a crawl space that was the first crawl space that I probably should have refused to enter because of excessive “cooties”—-“household dust.” For years the central vacuum has been improperly exhausting into the crawl space.
The predominant component of household dust is: SKIN—-human skin. Next comes dust mites and dust mite feces—because human skin is food for these cooties.
After these components comes hundreds of other irritants, carcinogens, pathogens, viruses, cigarette byproducts, fabric fibers, sand/soil, plant parts, insect parts, mold spores, pet dander, rodent feces, pollen etc.
I would love to know how anyone could ever figure this out, but supposedly, the average human looses between 50,000 and 100,000 skin cells every minute!
You can continue to itch and scratch now.
I think I need to go take another shower.
