Clean up the air- Inside!

Did you know that indoor air can be more polluted than outdoors?

Exposure to pollutants including VOC's (volatile organic compounds) and mould can be the result of poor air quality.

  • Remember to open your windows, even in the winter to let in fresh and cleanse your home of pollutants.
  • Quit smoking indoors (actually just quit)!
  • Don't store paint, solvent or varnishes in your home
  • Use low VOC paint 
  • Remember to dust and vacuum regularly (does dust actually appear with kids?)
  • Control Humidity and Allow ventilation!
