October is National Indoor Air Quality Awareness Month. Maintaining healthy indoor air quality (IAQ) is an important part of asthma and allergy management. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has several resources to help you reduce asthma and allergy triggers in your environment and maintain healthy IAQ.

When you have asthma, you have to carefully consider what cleaning products you use. Many cleaners have scents that can trigger asthma and affect your IAQ.

Kafi Drexel Brown, AAFA’s Public Relations Director, talked about asthma and scents during the virtual Discover Cleaning Summit. The event was hosted by Good Housekeeping and the American Cleaning Institute on Oct. 14, 2020, from 9 a.m. to noon ET.


To learn more about scents in cleaners, visit the summit's webpage and watch the “Making Sense of Fragrance” video.

Other sessions looked at cleaning trends, the science of cleaning and how to find out what’s in your cleaning products.
