Indoor air pollution can trigger a host of breathing problems, especially for people with asthma and other respiratory issues.
The American Lung Association says common sources of indoor air pollution include:
- Cigarette smoke.
- Mold or mildew.
- Improperly vented appliances, such as stoves or furnaces.
- Exhaust from cars, motorcycles or lawn mowers.
- Household chemicals.
- A recent paint job.
- Recent pesticide use.
- Trash left inside the home or attached garage.
