Spring is in the air, or at least in my mind it is. I have had spring fever since January 1st and have been counting down the days to spring ever since. Lucky for me the weather has been nice and cooperating with my intent. Now that March is here, we have started planning our summer and the 'fun projects' we hope to accomplishing.
How clean is the air you breathe at home? From what the studies have found, not very clean.
Air pollution indoors occurs at levels two to five times higher than outdoors, even in major cities. Considering that you're probably spending nearly 90 percent of your life indoors
Now that our kids are out of the crawling and falling stage of childhood, my husband and I are considering what kind of flooring to put throughout the house. When we moved in, Malia, my daughter was just five months old and learning to crawl. So we were fine with carpet throughout the house; actually, we welcomed it. However, we knew we did not want to keep the carpet forever.
Did you know that the average household uses 40 pounds of household cleaning products per year? And that your indoor air is likely more polluted than the air outside your home – even if you live in a large city? Considering that we probably clean our homes and businesses regularly and spend nearly 90 percent of our life indoors, that’s a serious concern!
