Asthma attacks often occur when sufferers are exposed to harmful particulates and contaminants. Preventing asthma attacks in your home more or less involves limiting exposure to these elements. This includes removing dust and allergens, organising duct cleaning on a regular basis, avoiding pets and the residue they leave behind, dealing with household pests such as cockroaches, and avoiding tobacco smoke. This blog post contains more details on how to prevent asthma attacks in your home.
Reduce Dust and Allergens
Carpets and furniture are havens for dust and allergens, both of which can set off asthma attacks and other allergic reactions. You can prevent this by cleaning carpets and furniture on a regular basis. Alternatively, you can replace carpets and other coverings with hypoallergenic solutions such as timber tiles. In addition, you can install allergen-barrier coverings for pillows and mattresses.
Stop Smoking Tobacco
Tobacco cigarettes are highly toxic, releasing fumes that contaminate the air and creating residue that collects on nearly every surface. Asthmatic people can experience severe attacks when exposed to second hand tobacco smoke. Simply smoking in another room is not enough to protect sufferers, as the smoke permeates hair and clothes long after the act of smoking.
