Lung Health : Health Tip: Breathe Healthier Air at Home

Posted May 31, 2016

(HealthDay News) -- To help prevent breathing problems, keep the air inside your home clean.

The American Lung Association recommends:
  • Allowing no one to smoke inside your home.
  • Performing a radon test to check for the invisible gas, which has been linked to lung cancer.
  • Running a dehumidifier or air conditioner to keep humidity levels below 50 percent. Keep the filters inside those appliances clean.
  • Repairing any leaking water pipes immediately.
  • Keeping pests away by cleaning up food spills and storing food properly.
  • Never using an outdoor wood burning stove inside the home.
  • Finding the source of odors and cleaning them, rather than masking the smell with candles and room sprays.
  • Opting for less toxic household cleaning supplies.
