For the past 3 years I have been dealing with this strange "fluff" ...
... not to be confused with this Fluff ...
... which is delicious to eat straight from the jar with a spoon or shoveled into a cup of hot cocoa or piled high on top of ice cream. You can't eat the fluff in the first photo. Well, I guess you could if you were bent on doing so, but why would you?
Back to the question at hand. Does anyone know what that fluff in the first photo is? It is not a big dust bunny & it is not a conglomeration of Sophie hair. It not only makes its home underneath dressers, beds, & other pieces of furniture ... blowing out into our walking paths from time to time ... but it adheres to the bottoms & sides of furniture legs as though it's adhering to fly paper. It won't suck off with a vacuum cleaner, it won't dust off ... John has to literally get down on his hands & knees & crawl around on the floor to pry it off the furniture legs with his fingers.
I am not a cleaning maniac but I am not a slovenly pig either. I will tell you that I will clean my floors fluff free & a few days later there it is again ... fluff everywhere. I have never seen this fluff anywhere else I've ever lived or visited & believe me, I've been around the block a few times. When the air conditioner repair guy was here recently I scooped up a handful & asked him if he knew what it was ... was it perhaps coming from the air ducts? He looked at it strangely & said he had no idea. He said that it can't be from the air unit because the filters are designed to catch that kind of stuff.
I've had wooden floors in the past but I never experienced fluff invasion until moving here. I've likewise never had this problem with carpeted floors. Why here? Is it "a Kentucky thing?" Are John & I breathing in some microscopic fluff that is akin to breathing in asbestos?
If, along with me, you have no idea what this fluff is ... do you have any idea who I could contact to find out?
