Vent-Axia Offered Ways to Help Take Care of Your Lungs for ‘Love Your Lungs’ Week
Vent-Axia shared ways to help take of your lungs and protect your household from indoor air pollution during Love Your Lungs week. Indoor air pollution can affect lung health and is linked to increased risk of pneumonia, COPD and lung cancer. If an asthma sufferer has an allergic reaction to a pollutant in the air, this can also make asthma symptoms worse. Vent-Axia has been committed to protecting public health by improving indoor air quality since 1936. As part of this commitment, Vent-Axia supported the Asthma UK and British Lung Foundation Love Your Lungs campaign, which raises awareness of lung health.
To support the campaign Vent-Axia shared six useful tips to help them take care of their lungs. For people with lung conditions, good indoor air quality (IAQ) is especially important. This is even more true during the COVID pandemic, which is particularly dangerous to those with lung conditions. Key to tackling indoor air pollution and improving IAQ is to ‘reduce – dilute – purify’ and so Vent-Axia shared the following tips:
- Reduce the use of aerosols and use eco-friendly cleaning products
- Don’t smoke and avoid anyone smoking indoors
- Don’t forget to ventilate
- Stay active
- Breathe deeply
- Use an Air Purifier.
