7 Simple Steps to a Healthier Home
Keep your house clean and healthy with these natural tips for dealing with dirty work.
Clear the Air
Indoor pollution can be more than 10 times worse than outdoor pollution, thanks to chemicals like formaldehyde and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that evaporate from home-decorating and cleaning products.
To avoid exposure, opt for low-VOC paints and cleansers; steer clear of pressed wood products that contain formaldehyde such as hardwood plywood paneling and medium density fiberboard; and keep your house well-ventilated with open windows and air-cleaning devices such as mechanical air filters or electronic air cleaners.
