The Most Important Place To Wear A Mask That You're Probably Missing
By DEMETRA NIKOLAKAKIS
Not only are masks very useful when it comes to the coronavirus, but they are also necessary when dealing with chemicals and dust in your home. Here is the most important place within your home to wear a mask.
When you go into a room that hasn’t been touched in ages, we highly recommend wearing a mask that has a dust filter — not a surgical mask, which has gaps where the dust can get through. If you’re worried about other forms of danger, opt for a stronger mask.
It’s important to wear a mask, because inhaling dust can cause health issues like inflammation and scarring in your lungs. Inhaling dust can lead to hypersensitivity, pneumonitis, and can even put your life at risk if you suffer from asthma.
