The room also contains odour, dust mite feces & remains and in some cases even cockroach.

A study on sources of household dust concluded that the dust mix in any household is dependent on these factors:

  1. Climate of that area
  2. Number of people living in that house
  3. Age of that house
  4. Cooking, smoking and cleaning habits of occupants of the house

Most of the dust, in form of pollens, comes from outside. It gets carried inside the house from shoes, clothes or hair.

Dust mites occur naturally and particularly thrive in humid environments. Even areas with low humidity may have dust mites settled on furniture, carpets or curtains.
