All of us want to breathe well in our homes. Yet often, the indoor air quality or the indoor environment, may not be allowing us to breathe as well as we want. There are immediate actions all of us can take to breathe well in our homes. Years ago, I started switching to non-toxic, safer cleaners and now I even use a few homemade cleaners. Both your local stores and online outlets offer many safer, non-toxic cleaning products and natural cleaning recipes abound on the internet.
Next, you will want understand how leaky your home is, as leaks bring pollutants into our homes, as well as leaking the heated or cooled air. There is a lot you can do on your own, yet you may want to bring in a home professional, such as an energy auditor, to help locate the leaks and advise the best way to address them.
