I have been focused on air quality ever since I was took care of with asthma at the age of nine.
Back then I weren’t sure if I was simply sensitive to seasonal dust sensitivities, or if it was something more. The dentist prescribed myself and others several bizarre inhalers—one to use yearly, plus another to use whenever I had severe difficulty breathing. To our luck, I never had more than several severe asthma attacks, plus I was lucky to have our inhalers on myself and others in both instances. But that’s genuinely because I don’t put myself in situations where I could be at drastic risk, such as a camping trip deep into the woods somewhere remote. Even if I am conservative about what I do in life to mitigate risks for asthma triggers, I can inadvertently expose myself to a completely bizarre set of troubles here at home. I bought plus installed a wood stove this year without fully understanding the need for adequate ventilation. The chimney hadn’t been cleaned in a number of years plus that was a critical error. Thankfully I live in Orland Park, IL plus I had carbon monoxide detectors already installed throughout our house, otherwise I wouldn’t have l gained that a wood stove could produce carbon monoxide. That’s the afternoon when I l gained that even candles produce minute amounts of carbon monoxide, but a wood stove is a much bigger fire. After I put the fire out, I called a fireplace plus woodstove specialist plus that’s when they discovered the soot buildup in our chimney. Now I can finally use our wood stove without worrying about poisoning our indoor air.
