In this work, we present the results of a geochemical characterization of major and trace elements of household dust in the city of Huelva. Dust samples were collected in 100 house distributed in the city in October 2013. Also, control-dust was sampled in small villages around Huelva. Analyses were performed by ICP-OES and ICP-MS at the Central Laboratories of the University of Huelva, after attack with HF + HNO3 + HClO4 according to Querol et al. (2004).
