Home sweet home should be a place where you, your family and friends can kick
back, relax and, most importantly, feel safe and secure. Part of that security
is knowing that your home environment is as healthy as it can be. To truly enjoy
the positive benefits of feeling at home when you are in your house, condo,
or apartment, you must take steps to put to rest any concerns you may have about
the safety of your home in terms of health. This article will outline some of
the steps you can take to achieve a healthy home environment that will allow
you to feel more than safe at home.
Using only natural organic cleaning products when it comes to keeping house
is an excellent strategy to rid your home of the harmful chemicals found in
most brand name cleaning products. This includes the lemon-scented spray cleaner
that you use, laundry detergents, fabric softeners, and even that polish you
use on your furniture. All of these could contain
harmful chemicals. Getting rid of these products safely is the first step, and
switching to organic cleaning solutions, which are equally as effective and
usually less expensive, is the second. This will ensure that there are no dangerous
substances around the house for your loved ones to come into contact with.
Has the amount of stress you have in your life finally taking a toll?

Decorating your home with live plants is not only a great choice from a stylistic
point of view, but this choice has many positive effects. Plants can brighten
any room and add interest and beauty to your daily life. More to the point,
plants are natural air filters that take in harmful molecules in the air through
their leaves, and turn them into clean and pure oxygen molecules. This is a
completely natural process that will make the air in your home cleaner and much
safer to breathe into your lungs. Furthermore, this natural oxygen production
will eliminate the need for that noisy and expensive air filtration system.
Any home can house plants and any windowsill is the
perfect place for a plant.
This, of course, is not to say that every home owner will have the green thumb
that is necessary for growing said plant! There are zillions of species of plants
available to most people, and many of those varieties are hardy, easy-to-grow
plants that require little care. With the help of your local garden specialist,
you can find the perfect plants for your home that suit your needs and the level
of care you are willing to provide for them. Those that are more apt to growing
plants and already have a substantial collection may want to research which
plants are better at air filtration than others, and ensure that you have the
best possible plants for oxygen production. You may find that you love growing
plants so much that you turn it into a hobby! While others may find
that plant ownership is simply too much effort to really expand so far, yet
they certainly improve the look and health of any home.
These are just a few of the ideas that will be explored in this series that
will help you on your way to creating a healthy home. Some other ideas are using
natural light in your home by opening curtains and doors to let the sun shine
in, and properly recycling old tools, using organic materials and paint cans that are
cluttering up your garage and contributing to the pollution in your home.
