Does someone in your household have asthma? If this person has been experiencing more flare-ups than usual or recently developed asthma for the first time, this could be a sign that your home’s indoor air quality is unhealthful.
Persistent exposure to known asthmagens (asthma-causing agents or substances) leads to asthma symptoms like:
- Tightness in the chest
- Shortness of breath
Certain types of dust and mold are the most widely known asthmagens found in homes. However, a more comprehensive list of indoor asthma triggers looks like this:
- Tobacco smoke (including secondhand and thirdhand smoke)
- Wood smoke
- Cockroaches and pests
- Family pets
- Nitrogen dioxide (an odorless gas released by fuel-burning appliances)
- Household chemicals (e.g. cleaners, paints, cosmetics, air fresheners)
- Outdoor allergens (e.g. grass pollen, tree pollen)
- Dust mites
As you can see, your asthma symptoms could be caused by several different environmental factors—which can be frustrating when you’re trying to narrow down what, exactly, is causing your suffering.
