What environmental factors can trigger asthma? I have an asthmatic child, what can I do to improve my home’s condition?

Asthma can be triggered by environmental toxins and allergens. Keep areas well ventilated simply by opening a window. Stagnant warmth and humidity can result in the growth of Mold, an allergen that can trigger asthma. Vapors off gassing from new carpets, paint, or furniture, as well as fumes from common household cleaners can aggravate an asthmatic’s lungs.
