Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA) Offers Tips and a Free Guide to Ridding Your Home of Respiratory Irritants
May 19, 2009, Fairfax, VA— Spring cleaning? While clearing out cobwebs and boxing up old clothes, don’t forget an invisible but crucial component of your home: the air you breathe. Even in the spring, people spend most of their time indoors—as much as 90 percent, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). For those with allergies or asthma, having clean indoor air is crucial to managing symptoms.
Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA), the leading patient advocacy group for allergy and asthma, gives you five tips for spring-cleaning the air in your home to make it lung-friendly by reducing allergens and irritants.
