According to the Mayo Clinic, managing asthma is about managing asthma triggers.
Not everyone will have the same irritants and finding those triggers may take some work, but by limiting airborne irritants such as allergens and humidifying the air you can help manage asthma.
According to the American Lung Association, asthma can even be triggered by strong odors such as perfumes, air fresheners, and hairspray.
While there is no known cause for asthma, limiting exposure to airborne irritants such as cold air, tobacco, airborne allergens, and viruses can help.
Having clean and healthy indoor air will help limit those airborne irritants that can help you and your family manage asthma triggers.
Preventing airborne irritants in the air and providing fresh clean air can help you and your family manage asthma. With the help of an air purifier, these airborne irritants can be captured and reduced. In fact, a MERV 16 Air Filter can capture up to 96% of virus-sized airborne particles and up to 99% of airborne allergens that flow through the filter.
Cold and dry air can also be a trigger so making sure the air is humidified properly will help manage asthma triggers.
