Because of this, my husband bought me a vacuum cleaner. I was excited to try it for the first time and after many use, I just felt lazy to vacuum more often. But I guess I need to go back to the routine of vacuuming regularly so I can have an asthma friendly house.
Asthma Prevention Tip: Vacuum Regularly
According to experts, asthma symptoms can be substantially reduced by avoiding known allergens and respiratory irritants. In my own experience, the most common allergens that trigger my asthma are dust mites. According to studies, the exposure to certain dust mites can be reduced by encasing mattresses and pillows in allergen-impermeable covers, removing carpets from bedrooms, and by vacuuming regularly.
