Healthy Indoor Living

From the paint on your walls to the choices you make within your walls, you’ll want to do everything you can to ensure the most wholesome environment for you and your family. Here are some things to consider in your quest for a healthier home.

  • Green Your Clean: “Green” cleaners can do just as good a job as chemical-laden ones, to the benefit of your lungs and the health of your entire family. Research combinations of vinegar, lemon juice, baking soda and other common household items for healthier cleaning solutions. When considering store-bought cleaners, choose ones that say “petroleum free”, “biodegradable” or “phosphate-free”.
  • Toss the Teflon: Reduce the use of your -Teflon-coated cookware to lower the risk of the harmful chemicals used to make these nonstick coatings accumulating in your body. Consider switching to stainless steel, anodized aluminum, copper-coated pans, cast iron or enamel-coated iron pans. If you can’t get away from the Teflon, then at least  keep the temperature low when cooking so as to reduce the release of harmful toxins.
  • Say OK to Organic: We’re exposed to many harmful chemicals on a daily basis, so the switch to organic food is a sensible goal. While organic foods are healthier for our bodies, they may not be as healthy for our wallets, so cut the cost by researching foods that are worth the extra expense of buying organic. For example, you may choose to stick with non-organic bananas and melons as they have a protective layer of skin to protect the edible portions of the fruits from pesticides, while organic berries and peaches can be worth splurging on, as they are more vulnerable to chemicals.
  • Banish the Bunnies: Breathe easier by controlling dust bunnies with regular cleaning, and consider replacing wall-to-wall carpeting, a top collector of dust and allergens, with wood, tile, bamboo, linoleum or other flooring options. If that’s not practical then maintain a rigorous vacuuming schedule and deep clean carpets and rugs on a regular basis.
  • Go for Glass: Replace plastic bottles and containers with glass ones, and never microwave food in plastic containers.
  • Get the Lead Out: If you have an older home, check with your local health department about how to test  your home for lead paint. Chips or dust from crumbling lead-based paint is known to cause health risks.
  • Bug Off, Naturally: Don’t pollute your home and endanger human and pet health by tackling indoor bugs with harmful pesticides. The same goes for pest and weed control for your outdoor green space. Aim for non-chemical methods to create a healthier, greener environment both inside and outside your home.
  • Breathe Clean with Real Green: Real plants inside your home look great while helping to create better air quality by absorbing carbon dioxide and expelling oxygen. During this process, they also absorb indoor toxins that you would otherwise be breathing in. Consult with your local nursery for the plants most likely to thrive in your indoor light conditions.
