REDUCE ASTHMA TRIGGERS IN YOURHOME

Millions of children have asthma. It causes hospitalization and chronic problems. But

there are ways in which you can reduce, even eliminate problems in your home that may

trigger attacks.

Cold Weather

Asthma is triggered by something in the environment from tobacco smoke to cold

weather, even stress. Here are some basic methods of combating it.

Dogs and cats are cherished pets, and if you have them and family members with asthma,

you must keep fur and feathers out of the house, especially in the bedrooms. While some

animals may naturally cause less dander, all have it. Your pets will also need to have

their Saturday night baths, every week, in order to reduce this danger, even kitty.

Keep humidity levels in your home appropriate, 30 to 50% to reduce the growth of mold,

and create a comfortable home. A leaky roof needs to be fixed, pipes and windows too,

and be careful your houseplants are not creating mold.

A delicate subject, but important is cockroaches. Keep kitchen and eating

areas free of uncovered food and crumbs. Extermination may be necessary,

but if you don't remove the food sources, they will return.

Reasons for Asthma

Lastly, when pollen counts are high stay indoors and use air conditioning

systems.

 

Ask your REAL Estate Agent, Bill Young to send you other informative articles such as reducing dust

mites in your home and how to eliminate mold. Asthma is triggered by something in the

environment from tobacco smoke to cold weather, even stress.

 

When you tackle painting or finishing projects in the house, use products with no or low

volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These chemical emissions can trigger attacks along

with other odors such as perfumes, deodorizers you use throughout the house, cleaning

chemicals, even body powders. Buy green cleaning products or save money by making

your own!

It goes almost without saying that tobacco smoke inside your home, when family

members have asthma, is not recommended. And while you believe that smoking outside

is OK, even the smell on your clothes can be detrimental to asthma sufferers.

Secondhand smoke is a big problem for children.
