The Link Between Indoor Air Quality and Asthma

Discover What Clean Air Can Do

When it comes to air quality, you probably just think about the air outdoors. But the air indoors can actually be much more polluted and therefore, worse to breathe. Indoor air that contains dust, dirt, pollen, and other debris can actually worsen symptoms of those with asthma.

What Is Asthma?

Asthma is a chronic disease that affects the respiratory system, causing it to inflame and constrict. Asthma affects almost 25 million Americans and has no cure, but can be regulated by using medical treatment and by keeping environmental triggers to a minimum. Symptoms of asthma include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness.

The Effects of Indoor Air

Most people spend the majority of their time indoors, which means they’re breathing recirculated air instead of fresh air. If your heater or air conditioner has filters that haven’t been cleaned, you and your family members are subject to dust, dirt, bacteria, and dander.  Cigarette smoke, wood fire smoke, and soot are also common airborne elements in households.

Any or all of these particles can heighten asthma symptoms and even trigger asthma attacks.
