You are probably advised to stay at home if you suffer from flu symptoms, have asthma or allergies.
But you might even get into the fresh air.
"The significant increase in asthma and allergy in recent decades is likely to be associated with a poorer inner climate. In winter, especially young children live much more internally from abroad, and we know they are made easier and infected by viral and bacterial diseases. There is a connection here. Often the indoor air can be much more polluted than outdoor air, says doctor Kjell Vaage.

It is well documented that the bad indoor climate can aggravate the sufferers' wounds from asthma and allergy.
The incidence of these diseases is increasing and research shows that the causes of growth are increasingly linked to external and internal environmental factors, according to the Association of Asthma and Allergy in Norway.
The case continues below the picture.
"In the winter months we are entering, the same applies to pests such as mice and mice." Furthermore, we know that the appearance of mushrooms and mold in residential homes is increasing frequently during this time. mold building over time causes an increased risk of developing asthma and can also lead to worse respiratory infections, coughing and chest pain, "says Øyvind Setnes at Tryg Forsikring.

Various infectious diseases associated with the internal climate primarily affect the respiratory and mucous membranes in the nose and throat region. It causes common diseases such as colds and flu.
One of the worst sources of internal pollution is molding.
"It is particularly in the transition between the autumn wet weather and the cold winter mildew that we do not like, but the inner air is affected by it." If you do not get a mug, it will turn into a health problem for all those living in the house, says Setnes.
Condom molds are the most common, but all molds can be prevented with good prevention. The keywords here are to keep the surfaces clean and dry and make sure that moisture can not accumulate anywhere.
Good tips for a good indoor climate:
- 1. Rinse twice a day for 15 minutes. It does not stop opening a window, you have to open the windows at all the edges of the house. Then the humidity increases and the temperature decreases, which in turn causes the dust to swirl to become heavier and to be found on the floor. In addition to using the exhaust fan, you should also have an open window when cooking. This is to avoid water vapor and gas.
- 2. Keep a constant indoor temperature in all rooms at 21 degrees. Do not turn off heat in places you do not use. What can happen is the surfaces to cool and create condensation in combination with moisture. Water that happens can quickly lead to mold. Especially important is having a temperature of 18-21 degrees in the bedroom as we actually do some moisture when we sleep.
- 3. Avoid placing clothes to dry indoors, if possible. Water vapor is one of the worst for the climate in your home. Moisture can lead to mold, which is the main concern when it comes to indoor climate, which can enhance asthma and respiratory discomfort. If you have to hang clothes to dry indoors, it is recommended that you do it in a bath with a hood.
- 4. Avoid having large furniture directly against the cold outside walls. Where cool and warm air meets, it should be airy and good air circulation. Otherwise, condensation will occur, which will eventually develop into casting. We recommend a distance of at least 5-10 cm between the furniture and the cold outside walls.
- 5. Provide documentation, especially if you are a tenant. In some cases, one may require owners to make improvements, and in the extreme consequence someone may be forced to terminate the lease. This applies to homes where it has been proven to be dangerous to live and nothing is done to correct the conditions. (Source: Insurance Insurance)
