Around 25 million people in the U.S. have asthma, according to the CDC. Asthma is a respiratory disease that disrupts the airways, making it hard to breathe.
Plenty of people that suffer with asthma also suffer from allergies. Once they’re exposed to certain asthma triggers, their allergy symptoms spike.
Although millions of people have asthma, asthma friendly cleaning products aren't the easiest to come by.
While there are many different triggers of asthma, there are probably some that you don’t even realize are responsible. Cleaning products that you use every day in your house can irritate asthma sufferers and intensify symptoms. If you were to do a spot check of the average home, the overwhelming majority would not have asthma safe cleaning products in them.
The problem with a lot of cleaning products on the market is that they’re made with toxic chemicals. Some of these include VOCs (volatile organic compounds), bleach, ammonia and formaldehyde. Substances like these, when released into the air, contribute to respiratory problems in asthmatics.
Cleaning with harsh chemicals that can spark asthma symptoms is one thing, but there’s another reason why products of that nature should be avoided altogether. Aside from containing irritants, they’re also made with antibacterial disinfectants that kill GOOD bacteria.
When it comes down to bacteria, 80% of it is good and only 20% is actually bad. You don’t want household cleaning products that destroy ALL instances of bacteria. Why? Because they leave behind a layer of dead bacteria known as BioFilm which becomes a food source for new bacteria.
With the rate at which asthma is growing, why not make simple changes in how you clean to avoid triggering symptoms and suffering? Asthma safe cleaning products, like the Airbiotics line, put allergens in their place and help you breathe easy.
