Indoor air quality: Bedroom
Some people may not know it, but the bedroom is one space that contributes to poor indoor air quality at home. The bedroom usually contains items that collect dust, causing the growth of dust mites. Dust mites are insects that are invisible to the naked eye and are considered indoor pollutants. They feed on human skin flakes found in mattresses, pillows, bed covers, upholstered furniture, stuff toys and clothes.
Exposure to dust mites, especially their body parts and feces, can cause asthma in individuals who did not suffer from asthma symptoms in the past. To maintain the indoor air quality in the bedroom, it is necessary to dust and vacuum regularly, wash beddings and use allergen-proof pillow and mattress covers. If you find there to be a more serious issue, contact a professional.
