Home Asthma Triggers – HHWG

Home Asthma Triggers

Indoor environments are 2-5 times more polluted than outdoors and we spend 90% of our time inside. For those with allergies and asthma, a home environment is even more important. Environmental controls targeted toward allergens and irritants you are sensitive to can improve symptoms, and just having an Environmental Action Plan has been shown to help. By understanding how triggers are generated inside your home and come in from the outdoors, you can start removing them.

Below are resources from leaders on the home environment.
