Your home should be a haven — the place you and your family unwind at the end of the day. However, there could be environmental hazards in your home that expose your family to sickness and dangerous chemicals. Today, families are focusing on ways to make their homes healthier and greener. Whether you decide to work with an Atlanta pest control company that offers eco-friendly pest solutions, or you make an effort to reduce waste and improve air quality, here are a few ways you can improve the overall health of your home environment.
Switch to Natural Pest Control Solution
Pests have no place in your home, but if you’re concerned about the risks of using pesticides and chemicals, seek a local pest control company that offers eco-friendly solutions. Natural pest control programs use oils found in plants and trees that are an effective solution for unwanted insects. By using non-chemical methods and organic products, you’ll have peace of mind that your home is pest-free and healthy.
Go Green with Cleaning Supplies
Commercial cleaning solutions have chemicals that can cause unwanted health issues. You can either use natural alternatives or buy green-certified products, which will have fewer chemicals than traditional products. You’d be surprised at how much you can do with supplies you likely already have on hand. Baking soda and water mixed together make an effective cleaner for countertops, and a mixture of water and vinegar will leave your floors clean with no chemical residue.
Clear the Air
As your HVAC system continuously circulates air throughout your home, it picks up particles of pet dander, dust, cleaning products, and more. That’s why it’s important to change the filter regularly and to keep a clean home by mopping, dusting, and vacuuming. Investing in an air purifier is a great way to ensure your home’s air is clean, fresh, and healthy.
Be Careful with Plastics
Plastic containers, especially those marked with a #3 or #7, contain chemicals that leach into food or liquid stored in the containers. Glass or ceramic containers are significantly more eco-friendly and healthy than plastic and should be used when possible.
Keep Up with Home Maintenance
Pests and rodents can enter your home through tiny spaces, such as utility openings, dryer vents, and outdoor faucets. Gaps and cracks around windows and doors should be sealed with caulk or weather stripping. You can keep wildlife out of your attic and chimney by installing a chimney cap and wire mesh over attic vents.
