What’s Behind Allergic Asthma and How To Get Rid of It

Approximately 25 million people in the United States have asthma, an inflammatory disease of the lungs that causes chest tightness, shortness of breath, and wheezing, among other symptoms. Around 60%, or 15 of those 25 million, have allergic asthma, which is asthma triggered by allergens including pet dander, dust mites, mold, and cockroaches. Cockroaches are especially prevalent and pervasive in this area of the country, making them a major trigger for asthma attacks in both children and adults.

Astro Exterminating can protect your home and family from these asthma-aggravating pests. Their extermination service helps to eliminate roaches from your home, which in turn helps to eliminate triggers that can lead to asthma attacks. Astro technicians chemically treat the exterior of your home to keep roaches where they belong: outside.

If you do find a roach in your home, it is imperative that you call an exterminator immediately. Unfortunately, seeing one roach in your home does not mean you’ve seen them all; it’s likely that there are many more hiding in your walls, under furniture, and any other available crack or crevice. Proteins in their saliva, waste, and decomposing body parts become airborne, and breathing them in can aggravate your asthma. Continually breathing in these particles can even cause asthma to develop in small children. Since it is the most common chronic childhood disease, it is important to make sure your home remains roach-free for both you and your youngsters.

Roaches thrive in this area of the country, and Astro knows that having a pest-free home is crucial for keeping your allergic asthma at bay.
