Mould in your air conditioning unit can trigger an asthma attack.
Do you know what it’s like to have asthma? For asthmatics, whenever an asthma attack takes place they feel like they are literally about to die because no matter how many lungsful of air they breathe in they still couldn’t get enough oxygen into their lungs to make them feel okay. Normally people breathe effortlessly making them unaware of their breathing pattern but for asthmatics it’s different. People with asthma are consciously aware of their breathing.
What Is Asthma?
Asthma is a chronic and incurable lung condition where the airways are narrowed and inflamed. Individuals who suffer from asthma often experience shortness of breath, coughing, chest tightness and wheezing. Usually the coughing takes place at night or early morning. Asthma can affect anyone both young and old but most of the time it manifests during childhood.
What Can Trigger An Asthma Attack?
There are several substances that can trigger an asthma attack. Examples are the following:
- Pet dander
If you are asthmatic it is best that you avoid at all cost or if not at least limit your contact with any of these allergens to stop an attack from commencing. Getting rid of pet dander is easy, keep your pets outside your house or ask somebody else to take care of them if you are asthmatic. Your best option is to not have fury pets at all. For cockroaches, all you need to do is to make sure that your house is clean and spray pesticides every once in a while to keep cockroaches at bay. As for mold, you need to have your air conditioning units cleaned and serviced regularly since ACs are known to harbor moulds.
