EL PASO, Texas (KFOX14) — We usually think of air pollution as being outdoors, but the air in your home or your office could be just as polluted.
Dr. Adrian Casillas is an allergist at Breathe America in El Paso. He said modern construction of homes and offices can increase our exposure to allergens in the home.
“The construction of houses now does not allow for that much exchange between the outdoor air and the indoor air, so we tend to recycle a lot of the allergens that we have indoors,” said Casillas.
With more people staying indoors, the number of people with allergies is rising.
