In order to protect our babies from allergies and respiratory diseases we must be careful with the air that is breathed even at home.
Not everyone knows that, to guarantee the wellbeing of children and let them breathe clean air, we must spend our care not only on the environmental pollution and urban traffic, but also to the air that we breathe at home.
Healthy air, further than protecting children from allergies and respiratory diseases, improves, in everyday life, the quality of their rest and of their attitude to food. In closed rooms, above all if with poor ventilation, several polluting agent s (particulates, impurities), allergens (pollen, animal hairs, and mites), and micro-organisms (fungi, mold spores and bacteria) tend to concentrate These elements cause several allergic reactions and respiratory disease, which are significantly increasing in preschool children.
It's just for children, whose immune system is not yet fully developed and mature, that is essential thus to reduce the concentration of indoor harmful substances.
What can you do then? First of all, is essential to monitor humidity and temperature of the rooms where the child lives. Furthermore, it's advisable to follow common rules of hygiene: ventilate the rooms more times every day; avoid to overheat the rooms; not expose children to passive smoking,; avoid contact with objects/toys where dust can accumulate.
