Ways to Make Your Home a Healthy Environment
Tuesday, April 24th, 2018
Spring has arrived, which means that now is the perfect time for healthy cleaning. Turning your home into a healthy environment is very important, especially if you have a family. Maintaining your living space is one of the best ways to keep your children and pets as healthy as possible.
A Healthy Environment is Free of Mold
We've mentioned before
that mold can harm your health whether or not you have mold allergies. Mold can increase asthma symptoms, skin rashes, and other health problems. Unfortunately, early springtime conditions encourage mold growth. The leftover cold temperatures can make pipes burst. Increased rain means increased flooding. Humidity rises to uncomfortable levels. All of these things mean moisture, and moisture leads to mold growth. You remove mold from your bathrooms throughout the year, but now is the perfect time to check attics, basements, and crawlspaces.
A Healthy Environment Has Clean Surfaces
Speaking of mold, you'll want to make sure that your home's soft surfaces stay clean. It's easy to remove spills from floors and countertops. Couches, rugs, and carpets can be more difficult. Not only do they stain more easily, but they also absorb liquids very quickly. If you have children, your upholstery has seen a lot of spills. Furthermore, winter and springtime can be very hard on your carpeted floors. Day to day life brings mud, dirt, and germs into the house. To create a healthy environment, it's a good idea to hire a professional cleaning service to treat the rugs and other soft surfaces in your home. Professionals can reach the deeply-embedded dirt that vacuum cleaners miss.
A Healthy Environment Protects the Environment
Healthy cleaning does not mean filling your home with harsh chemicals. Look for products that kill bacteria and other illness-causing substances without harming kids, pets, or other family members. As an added bonus, family-friendly products don't add chemical harm to the environment.
