by Jeffrey C. May, Jonathan M. Samet (Foreword)

 

Asthma and allergy sufferers, this book is essential reading: it will answer all your questions about why you suffer in your own home and what you can do to prevent it. May, an air quality investigator and president of a home investigation company, takes you on a tour of your home, both interior and exterior, with a detailed description of the organic and inorganic substances that are making you ill. He covers every room, including the basement, attic, laundry room, garage, heating and air-conditioning system(s), and nooks and crannies that you probably forgot about. He explains how insects, molds, bacteria, yeast, dust, moisture, larvae, pet dander, fabric fibers, smoke, and many other agents can trigger an episode and how to eliminate them permanently. May provides actual stories from his many years of experience with the solutions he has recommended to his clients.

Editor reviews

This was one of the first books I read on allergies in the home and it remains one of my favourites. The author explores the whole range of allergens that can cause people problems at home, from dust and pet dander, to mold and bacteria. The author also discusses which of these allergens are likely to be a problem in each room in the house. The book is written in a very straightforward style with easy to follow instructions and this is backed up with useful illustrations.

This book is highly recommended for anyone who suffers, or whose family suffers, from allergies at home and needs an easy to read yet comprehensive guide to reducing troublesome allergens.
