Allergies are on the rise with asthma, eczema and other associated health problems increasing. Allergens, dust mites, pet dander and mould spores all contribute to a toxic home environment; ‘toxic home syndrome’. A report by the All Party Parliamentary Group for Healthy Homes and Buildings has warned that without action to tackle indoor air pollution, there could be an 80% rise in asthma cases by 2050.
Indoor environments are often poorly ventilated causing humidity to rise and creating ideal conditions for mould and dust mites to thrive. It is becoming increasingly important to keep your home free from allergens, mould spores, dust mites and other indoor pollutants and maintain good indoor air quality. Adequate ventilation can help fight against condensation and mould in the home.
