A growing body of scientific evidence shows that the air within our homes can contain more allergens and polluting agents than the air outside. So no matter where you live, there are some easy and effective steps that you can take help reduce your allergy exposure.
From millions of dust mites living in our pillow to pet dander from cats and dogs, removal and control of allergens and irritants at home is accepted by health experts as a critical preventative strategy for people with asthma and allergic diseases. As a result, Americans spend an estimated $10 billion a year on non-medicinal products such as vacuum cleaners, air cleaners, bedding, toys, and flooring. Increasingly these products tout a wide variety of benefits, such as allergen prevention, or promise improved health without providing any scientific proof or validation.
So how do you know if the steps you are taking and the tools you are using to create an allergen-free home are actually working? The asthma & allergy friendly™ Certification Program was created by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America and top medical experts, to independently test and identify the household products that are more suitable for people living with asthma and allergies.
