National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month

Asthma and Allergy

Spring Season Blooms Allergies

May is a peak season for asthma and allergy sufferers, and an ideal time to educate your friends and family about these conditions.

That’s why the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) declares May to be “National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month.”

More and more people are now being impacted by these diseases. For instance, in the United States:

  • Asthma affects about 23 million people
  • Allergies affect more than 50 million people

Rates of asthma and allergies are on the rise in the U.S., particularly among younger people. We believe raising awareness for these conditions is important, because asthma and certain allergies can be serious, sometimes life-threatening chronic diseases.

Floors are the largest surface area in the home and can trap harmful pollutants like dust and allergens, drastically affecting the health of your home.

Good indoor air quality can help reduce triggers that make these diseases more manageable. Carpet is one of the leading causes of poor indoor air quality. That’s why we recommend hardwood as the number-one flooring solution for asthma and allergy sufferers.
