Dyson, the popular home appliance brand, recently announced its first ever annual global dust study. undertaken by 10,754 respondents from 10 countries around the world, the study found that even though dust is cause for concern and a trigger for cleaning, very few are aware of what makes up the dust in their homes.

It has been mentioned that 59% of people around the world are cleaning more frequently since the outbreak of Covid-19. However, many still don’t know what’s in the dust that we find everyday in our homes. As the study by Dyson states, household dust includes dead skin cells, hair, dust mites, dust mite faeces, bacteria, viruses, mould, small insects and other fibres. Many of these particles are only visible under a microscope.

However, the company says it has an in-house microbiology lab that allows Dyson scientists to study microscopic organisms and particles. The engineers then apply this science to the design of Dyson machines, which we see in the form of V11 vacuum cleaners and other home appliances.

The Dyson Global Dust Study adds that while people do tend to agree that having less dust in the home creates a healthier environment (77%) and a third of respondents state that the main reason they clean up dust is to ensure the people in their homes “stay healthy” 7 , the wellbeing impact of dust is largely unclear.

As mentioned by the home appliance firm, there should be a few things you can keep in mind before buying a vacuum cleaner. Besides strong filtration, you can also look out for powerful suction, fade free power and ease of use. The company itself has a range of vacuum cleaners launched in India, with V11 Pro being the latest one.
