Building and renovating

building-renovation v3b

Building and renovating gives you the chance to tackle asthma and allergy triggers at the source.

Aim for a dry and well-ventilated house with good wall, floor and ceiling insulation. This will help target triggers such as dust mites, mould, chemicals like VOCs and temperature changes.

When choosing products, look for anti-mould properties, impact on temperature or humidity, and ease of cleaning. Products with low or no VOCs or chemicals will also help your family to breathe easier – it’s even better if you can let any smells or fumes air out before you settle in.
