ATLANTA – New reports from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America show Atlanta is the 55th most challenging place to live for those who battle asthma. Estes Services wants residents to know they can do their part to make it a little easier to breathe this spring with proper use of air conditioning systems, HVAC filters and dehumidifiers.
On this day, May 1st, World Asthma Day, experts from Estes Services are asking citizens in and around the greater Atlanta metro area to become actively involved in aiding the improvement of indoor air quality, most importantly for the next generation, their children.
The numbers are in for 2018 and Atlanta finds itself positioned as the 23rd most polluted city by Ozone according to a report put out by the American Lung Association.
Additionally, Atlanta ranks 76th on the “Most Challenging To Live with Spring Allergies” list compiled by the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America. The report notes Atlanta faces a challenge in overall medicine utilized per patient and not enough board-certified allergists per patient.
“Allergies, asthma and pollution are major challenges for our children and all of us here in the Atlanta area. We want to make sure everyone in the area knows how to fight the effects noted in these reports,” explained Tommy Estes, Owner of Estes Services. “From running your air conditioners to changing your filters more frequently to adding a dehumidifier are a few ways you can begin lessening the threat of allergens worsening allergies or asthma for your children inside your home this spring and summer.”
More than 24 million Americans have asthma. More than 50 million have allergies, many of both groups are children. Protecting your loved one’s air quality is possible with the right precautions and information at your disposal.
