Mitigating Environmental Triggers of Asthma

The Air Quality Monitoring Program's (AQMP) main goal is to decrease asthma symptoms in children by reducing environmental asthma triggers found within childcare settings. This is accomplished by identifying asthma triggers in the environment. Examples of environmental asthma triggers are:

Animals & Household Pets
Keep cold blooded animals versus warm blooded animals at your facility. If possible, refrain from having pets in your facility
Dust Mites and Uncleaned Living Spaces
Vacuum carpet and area rugs daily, but consider switching to hard floorings when possible because of their ease to clean and maintain
Mold, Mildew, & Moisture
Regularly dust air vents with a damp cloth and make sure the air vents are not blocked to allow for clear air circulation
