How can indoor air affect you?
Asthma is a mild to severe respiratory illness that hinders the ability to breathe and affects many people worldwide. Airborne contaminants and allergens can aggravate asthma, causing attacks.
Allergens can be outside influences that cause the body's immune system to negatively react. Dust, pollen, dander, and pet hair can all be allergens to humans.
You aren't the only thing living in your house! Many microorganisms live within indoor air, and some, like bacteria, interact with humans and their pets.
Exposure to carcinogens
Have you heard of a radon test? Radon is a radioactive element that can be found in the soil beneath your home, and it is one cause for carcinogens, or cancer-causing material, found within indoor air.
