While we love to welcome warm summer days and nights, constant high heat can have its drawbacks. With record-high temperatures growing daily throughout the globe this summer, it’s time to start paying attention to how high heat can affect both our mental and physical health.
Indoor air can be 5x more polluted than outside, due to everyday factors like paint, furniture, carpet, air fresheners, toys, and much more. Your air quality affects allergies, asthma, concentration, sleep quality, skin health and your overall health.
If you’re getting ready to give your home its annual deep-clean, make sure you’re doing so with your (and your family’s) health in mind.
It turns out some common spring cleaning practices can actually put our health at risk. Most cleaning products fail to protect us from a dangerous flaw that lies within their ingredients–while we are warned that direct contact with cleaning products is unsafe, we aren’t told about the lasting effect the chemicals in cleaning products have on the air quality in our homes.
