Indoor Environmental Consultants Support the Efforts of Asthma Awareness Month throughout Texas
Indoor Environmental Consultants (IEC) provides air testing services to help those who suffer from asthma avoid pollutants that can trigger or exacerbate their condition.
Understanding one’s asthma triggers, which can vary from person to person, is important for controlling this chronic disease.
May is Asthma Awareness Month and a reminder that approximately 25 million people in the United States suffer from the disease. In Texas alone, more than 2 million people have been diagnosed with asthma.
The Texas Department of State Health Services reports that 1 in every 11 children has asthma and it causes 3 in 5 people living with the disease to limit their physical activity or miss days of school and work. Asthma is also expensive, costing the nation $56 billion each year. Texas asthma hospitalizations cost more than $658.5 million in 2012.
Although asthma cannot be cured, it is possible to manage asthma successfully by reducing and preventing asthma attacks. Successful asthma management includes knowing the warning signs of an attack, avoiding things that may trigger an attack and following the advice of healthcare professionals.
“Understanding one’s asthma triggers, which can vary from person to person, is important for controlling this chronic disease,” said Hollis L. Horner, President, Indoor Environmental Consultants, Inc. “At IEC we support the efforts of Asthma Awareness Month and encourage people to learn about asthma triggers in their homes, schools and places of business. We also help those with asthma by providing indoor air quality testing services for known asthma triggers such as mold, dust mites, cockroaches, pet dander, smoke, volatile organic compounds and other substances. Understanding what a person is being exposed to, so that corrective actions can take place or certain situations be avoided, can make all the difference in managing the condition and preventing attacks.”
