Watch this video on the link between asthma and indoor air quality.

    Asthma sufferers deal with uncomfortable respiratory symptoms like coughing and shortness of breath, and millions of Americans of all ages experience them. The inflammation caused by asthma constricts your airways, and heightened mucus production makes it even more difficult to breathe. Pollen, mold, pets, and pests introduce allergens to your air, which can cause an allergic reaction and the release of histamine. This can worsen the symptoms of asthma due to increased inflammation and swelling. Take care of your indoor air quality and protect your respiratory health.
