The Dyson Dust Study 2023

At Dyson, we make it our mission to know what’s in your dust and the potential impact it can have on our health and wellbeing. Our team of in-house microbiologists study real dust from around the world, analysing particles measuring from 70 microns in size, the width of human hair, right down to 0.1 microns, the size of a virus.


Our microbiology and household dust labs allow us to investigate the components of real dust, debris and airborne pollutants found in real homes. We even farm our own dust mites, enabling our scientists to collect their faeces and learn more about dust mite allergens. Only through this extensive research can Dyson engineers continue to design new vacuum cleaner technologies, to better deal with the conditions they face in the real world.
