The more time we spend indoors, the more susceptible we are toairborn-alergens
airborne household allergens such as dust and dust mite
residue, human and pet dander (i.e. dead skin), mold spores,
and chemical off-gases from cooking, candles, smoking,
and synthetic materials that were recently introduced into
the home. To reduce the risk of respiratory discomforts
triggered by these irritants, it’s important to control indoor air
quality (IAQ) by utilizing HEPA-grade filters in whole-home air
circulation systems, as well as in portable air purifiers and vacuum
cleaners. In addition, frequently wiping fixtures and furniture,
plus cleaning carpets, throw rugs, mats, drapery, upholstery,
cushions and dust covers will make a great contribution to improved IAQ.
