When you think of allergens and asthma, do you think just outside your home? You should consider inside first, as you spend most of your time in your home.
Many things inside your house can trigger allergies and asthma. Things like dust, smoke, chemicals in cleaners and personal care products, mold and pet dander are all items that can trigger an attack. So, how can you make your home healthier?
Good Air start with ventilation: If you can’t open your doors and windows because of our high AZ temperatures, look into using an electronic air filter system and try to remember to change the filter on a regular basis.
Control moisture and mold: Quickly repair any leaks discovered in your home and try to keep humidity levels to less than 60 percent for a healthier environment.
Stop the Chemicals: Choose alternative cleaning products that are less harsh and fragrance free. Vinegar, baking soda, and lemon can do wonders for cleaning almost anything. And please, avoid smoking indoors.
Keep your pet groomed: Fido or any pet in the house should be washed and brushed on a regular basis. Some vets recommend weekly but it depends on the breed. If you do have your pet in your bedroom, try using an air cleaner when you sleep.
