Environmental Control Tips for People with Asthma

Did you know that your house could be contributing to your asthma attacks? This video highlights how common household items can aggravate your asthma.

Contaminants such as dust, mold, and dust mites can trigger an asthma attack. These pollutants can often be found in pillows and linens. Washing your bedding each week in hot water can kill dust mites and remove dust. Poor plumbing can also lead to asthma problems. If your bathroom sink or kitchen faucet leaks, it can produce mold on nearby baseboards and cabinets. Even scented candles can irritate breathing airways, leading to more frequent asthma attacks.
