Breathe Better at Home
I am not going to list the things that are obvious, such as pets, cockroaches, leaks, and so on. These should be on your list by the simple fact that it makes sense to clean a home and look for these things. I will list things you may forget or not know what to do with.
1. Cleaners: Some cleaners have harsh chemicals that can cause breathing problems or trigger an allergy or asthma attack. Read labels carefully and stay away from ones that have volatile organic compounds (VOCs), fragrances, or flammable ingredients. You can make your own cleaners with plain soap and water, vinegar, or baking soda.
2. Houseplants: These can be more than nice to look at, especially if your home is energy-efficient or not well-ventilated. In addition to getting rid of carbon dioxide and boosting oxygen levels, some can even help clear the air of chemical vapors. Of these, the easiest to grow and keep healthy include English ivy, ficus trees, peace lilies, and certain types of palms.
