A podcast about creating a healthy home and life with good indoor air quality. Each month we will speak with experts and share helpful information and insights about anything and everything that concerns the air we breathe and how we can protect the health and safety of our homes and families while staying indoors – from understanding indoor pollutants, the benefits of ventilation, the importance of continuous air quality monitoring to new technologies and more.
Continuing the conversation with allergist and immunologist Dr. Sharmilee M. Nyenhuis, we now focus on the home environment and the unseen pollutants that can trigger and/or worsen allergy and asthma symptoms. We discuss the main culprits – particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, mold, dander, VOCs – and their impact on our families’ health and well-being. We also discuss what kind of ventilation works for different seasons and what other ways you can manage your indoor air quality to prevent allergy and asthma episodes.
