While you may think you have a safe and well kept home that doesn’t mean it is a healthy environment for you and your family. So here is a list of the top secrets to healthier living in your home.

  • Introduce Some Potted Plants: You would be surprised to know how truly effective this trick is. But, introducing some potted plants into your home will greatly help to neutralize many harmful chemicals that naturally occur in some paints and fabrics. Plus they will help infuse more oxygen into the air of your home making it safer and healthier for people to breathe.
  • Utilize An Air Purifier: There are a variety of air purifier options out there from small single room purifiers to large full home purifier systems. This may require you to fork out a little cash but remember this is an investment in the health of you and your family. Utilizing an air purifying system will eliminate a great deal of dust, allergens, and pollutants you don’t want floating around your home.
  • Open A Window Or Two: Stagnant indoor air can contain as much as five times more pollutants than the cleaner fresher air of the outdoors. Air flow is very important when it comes to a healthier home so be sure and open a window or two from time to time. Obviously, if you are susceptible to pollen or other allergens scratch this idea and try to create a fresh airflow some other way.
  • Lay Mats At All Entryways: Experts say that up to 80 percent of the dirt, lawn chemicals, bacteria, allergens, and overall mess that gets traced into your home each day can be caught on entry way mats. By putting washable mats on both sides of all your entryways you can really boost the healthiness of your home by keeping many harmful particles out of it.
  • Filter Your Water: If you and your family are drinking water out of the sinks in your home it is imperative you filter out all the harmful chemicals. No matter where you live your water is bound to have some impurities that you don’t want to introduce into your body. Filtering your drinking water will eliminate a great deal of contaminants that may seem small but can really do a number on your immune system and overall health.
  • Have It Cleaned Regularly: A clean home is a happier and healthier home and therefore it is extremely important that you make sure it gets cleaned on a regular bases.
