Asthma is a serious condition that affects many Americans. If you or your child has asthma, it's important to be aware of certain triggers so they can be avoided whenever possible.
Secondhand smoke is one of the number-one triggers of asthma symptoms. If your child or anyone else in your home has asthma, you should not smoke. Don't even smoke in the car if no one is around, as the smoke can linger.
Dust mites are another common trigger. Although they are found anywhere there is dust, not everyone is allergic or sensitive to asthma attacks. Mattress covers and hypoallergenic bedding should be used to eliminate dust mites in the bedroom.
Did you know that cockroaches can cause allergies and may also trigger asthma attacks? It's true. The droppings of these disgusting critters can exacerbate asthma symptoms. However, it's not like you need another reason to try to get rid of cockroaches.
Pet dander can also trigger an asthma attack, and sometimes symptoms get so bad that pet owners are forced to get rid of their furry companions. If you choose to keep the pet, you should still work to keep the pet out of the bedroom of the person with asthma.
Asthma attacks can be dangerous, and in some cases, fatal. To keep the air in your home as clean as possible, invest in a top-quality air purification system like those we sell at FreshAirPro. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is one of the top-selling air purifiers on the market because it can filter particles as small as .003 microns - that's about 100 times smaller than the filtration capabilities of other HEPA-grade filters.
