(NAPS)--On average, Americans spend about 90 percent of their time indoors-- of that 90 percent, about 65 percent is spent at home. Indoor air pollution, indmi- ing h~maehold allergens, is one of the leading causes of health problems in the United Stste~ According to Dan Still, Certified Indoor E- nvironmental Expert, retired engineer and author of "Healthy Living Spaces: Top 10 Hazm Affecfing Your Health," in- do0r can be just as harm- ful as outdoor pol- Daniel $tlh lution. =The last thing any person wants is to live in a si&house, full oftzig- gets that end up aifecting their overall well-being," says =Paying attrition to how your appliances work, the ingredi- ents in cleaning supplies and your overall atmosphere will help combat pollutants and reduce allergies to improve your home environmenL" Stih suggests five practi- cal tips to help reduce trig- gers that cause unhealthy homes. 1) Va umsz-Pay atten- tlon to what tbey promise. Investing in a good vacuum cleaner can make all the dif- ference. Many vacuums not only underperform but can do more harm than good. Look for a machine that cap- tures dust and does not blow it hack into the air. Dyson va~ uums reduce allergen parti- cles. They are asthma and allergy friendly, a 0rdlng to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of Ame~ca. 2) Air purifiers---The power of filters. Air puri- tiers that do not require fi]- ~ers produce ozone, a gas that can cause health problems and affect our ]un~s and res- p atory sy er high-effi~ency particulate air Protect your home sweet home from Sick House Syndrome.. (HEPA) filters are the best option, given they remove at least 99.97 percent of~ particles. If your air purifier doesn't have a filter, unplug it and go buy one that does. 3) Mold--Don just kill mold; remove it. S~0e mold causes allergies, part of get- ting rid of household aller- gens is to get rid of mold. Soap, water and hydrogen pemxids can be used in clean- ing the affected area. The Environmental Protection Agency states that dead mold may still cause allergic reac- tions in some people, so for a healthy home, it is not enough to kill mold; it must also be removed. 4) Scents--As seent free as you can be. Unplug air ffesheners, wash clothes in ~t laundry soap and minimize the use of perfume. According to the United States F00d and Drug Adminis- tration, fragrances cause 30 percent of all allergic maction~ and when exposed to perfume, m~re than 70 pement of allergy sufferers develop respiratory ymptoms. 5) Household cleaners--- Read the label. Cleaning supplies can sometimes increase allergen levels. Reading the label to identify hazardous chemicals is important when looking for cleaning supplies. A healthy cleaning product will always list all its ingredients.
