Thick black dust in my house?

Asked November 25, 2016, 3:12 PM EST

I have a thick black dust in my home. It gets on everything. It coats my curtains, gets on my furniture. I have never had this and do not know where it comes from. I live near a interstate and some web sites suggest that is the cause. Can someone please tell me where this is coming from?

In order to help, I will need a bit more information. First, how long has this been a problem? Second, what kind of heating system are you using? Do you have gas logs? Wood stove? I'm attaching a link to an article that may be helpful. Not knowing more about your particular situation, I'm not certain exactly what the issue may be, but it sounds like you could have an issue with soot.
