Improving the health of your home doesn’t have to be a lengthy or expensive process. We’ve mapped out five simple steps you can take to make your home healthier and happier.
Filter Your Water
Did you know that bottled water often contains more contaminants than filtered tap water? Water filtration is both an easy and cost effective way to reduce the contaminants exposed to you and your family. Start simple with a Soma water filter or upgrade to a countertop filtration system.
Filter Your Air
According to the EPA, indoor air pollution can be up to five times higher than outdoor air pollution. With allergy season upon us, air filtration will rid both harmful and non-harmful particles from the air, including dust, pollens, viruses, bacteria, and more.
One of the easiest steps towards a healthier home is to cut out all household cleaners that contain harmful chemicals. Choose cleaners that don’t contain ammonia or chlorine and are made from natural ingredients you recognize and can pronounce.
Choose No VOC Paint
Giving your home a new look? When choosing paints, make sure to choose brands that contain low or no VOCs. Paint is the second largest contributor of VOCs to the air, second to automobiles. Lucky for us, all of the paints at TreeHouse are zero VOC, so just pick the one that best fits your vision.
Choosing native vegetation for your landscaping helps reduce the need for pesticides, which are easily tracked into the home. If you do find yourself using pesticides in your landscaping, make sure to remove your shoes before entering your home.
