You spend a large portion of your time in your home. Whether you are relaxing, renovating, cooking, cleaning or working, your home is a place where you should always feel safe and secure. Home is a place where you can let your guard down and feel free to enjoy your life to the fullest.
Your home should support you in every effort toward happy, healthy life. It goes far beyond home security and simply baby-proofing your home. A healthy, safe home is free of toxins in everything from cleaning supplies to your decor. Manufacturers are quickly realizing this trend toward healthier homes and have begun to offer safe alternatives. Eco-friendly and health-conscious decor choices are popping up all over the country. Innovative designers and manufacturers have decided to nix the odorous paints, stains and chemicals used in manufacturing, as they can carry toxins.
The rooms in your home where you spend the most time should be your priority. Take a close look at the contents of the stains on the floors, cabinets or the spill-proof guard on the carpets. Toxins hide out in plain site and some don’t make their impact known until they have already manifested into a larger issue.
Make your house a healthy home by taking a closer look at labels and purchasing new decor items that are eco-friendly or toxin-free. Your family and the environment will be forever grateful for the extra ounce of effort that goes into looking a little more carefully at each item in your house.
