Make Your Home a Lung-a-licious Place

On average we spend about 65 percent of our time in our homes. Pollution from the outside surroundings, as well as air pollution generated indoors can become trapped in our homes, triggering asthma episodes and generally creating an unsafe environment for our lungs.

The major indoor pollutants are either biological in nature such as:

  • Animal feathers and hair
  • Dust mite and cockroach parts
  • Molds, pollen, bacteria or viruses

Or they are toxic gases such as Nitrogen Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide, Radon, Formaldehyde, Asbestos and secondhand smoke.

You can improve the air quality in your home by conducting an inspection. Tour your household. Following your eyes and your nose can lead you to find many of the potential hazards shown below.
