Creating a healthy home can help you and your family breathe cleaner, fresher air and potentially reduce allergic reactions or allergy-related asthma attacks.
Click on a room below to learn which triggers are found where and what you can do about them.
Dust mites are one of the most common triggers in the home but they aren’t the only ones that enjoy cosying up in your bedroom.
Mould thrives in warm, damp environments like your bathroom. Good ventilation and fixing any leaks can help reduce the impact of this common trigger.
Garden and outdoors
Your garden is a haven for triggers like pollen. If you are sensitive, avoid spending time in the garden on high pollen days.
Look for detergents and cleaning products with fewer harsh chemicals and no fragrances. Also keep an eye out for mould lurking in your laundry.
Furniture, curtains and flooring can harbour all sorts of triggers, from dust mites to pet dander. Look for products that are easy to clean or have antimicrobial properties.
