Health Tip: Have Clean Air at Home

-- Polluted air inside the home can aggravate asthma and allergy symptoms.

The American Lung Association offers these suggestions to help keep the air clean at home:

  • Don't allow smoking in the home.
  • Have your home tested for radon gas.
  • Make sure your home's humidity level is below 50 percent. Install a dehumidifier if humidity levels are too high.
  • To prevent attracting mold, make sure no plumbing is dripping or leaking.
  • Keep trash covered and food securely stored to ward off pests.
  • Avoid using candles or sprays to hide odors.
  • Avoid using household products that contain toxic chemicals.
