The first step in controlling Asthma triggers is accomplished by
removing contents and materials that can harbor mold and other Asthma triggers.
This needs carefully accomplished without spreading the allergens through the
home like the white seeds on the dandelion plant. Treating the home with the proper
treatment methods and products is another important step. Our approach to this
is to help our clients by identifying the sources of allergens. We then write
an assessment report to guide remediators on the path to giving you a healthy
mold is one of the leading triggers for Asthma, we need to look at every
trigger in the home to make it a healthy home. Other allergens include animal
dander, dust mites, cockroaches and pollen.

breathing in dust mites, dander, dirt and every other allergen brought across
the floor on the shoes of every visitor and paws of every pet. YUCK!
Control irritants: These
can include tobacco smoke, sprays, plug in air fresheners, fragrant candles,
sprays, smog and other pollutants. These can be better controlled with use of
sweepers with HEPA filters and not bagged sweepers. Install hard surface floors
instead of carpet. Minimize dust.
Avoid Other Asthma Triggers: These
include sulfites in food and beverages. These sulfite sources include alcohol,
dried fruit, processed potatoes, sandwich meat and shrimp.
air can be an Asthma trigger as well as some medicines such as cold medicines,
aspirin, vitamins, and some other supplements.Pesticides to control the pests
that are triggers can also be Asthma triggers. Other VOC’s can be triggers.
Make sure to avoid those chemicals.
