Are you polluting your Environment without knowing it?

Question from Debbie:
I have asthma and feel worse in the winter when I am stuck at home. Could I be polluting my environment and not know it?
HGL Answer:
Indoor air pollution can be a serious health risk. When we are spending more time indoors because of weather or other reasons, it is important to recognize the potential dangers. For people with respiratory problems such as asthma the level of air pollution in your home can be painfully acute.

Many pollutants you should be aware of are pet dander, dust mites, mold spores, even human skin particles to mention just a few.

A few suggestions to help cut down on the pollutants are:

Vacuum Daily- Use a vacuum cleaner with a dirt cup instead of a paper bag. Empty the dirt cup after each use. If you can’t vacuum daily, do not go more than once a week without a thorough cleaning, especially if you have pets indoors.

Dry Cleaning- Find an Eco-Friendly dry cleaner in your area. If you can’t find one, set you cleaning outside, out of the bag for a couple of days. Place it back in the bag when putting it in your closet.

Clean with Non-Toxic Household Cleaners- Brightly Green Cleaners are safe and effective for cleaning your home.
