Having a fresh, clean home is truly one of the most rewarding pleasures in life! But your benefits go far deeper than just aesthetics.
According to TotalProtect® Home Warranty experts, getting rid of dust, allergens and bacteria helps to reduce (or even eliminate) symptoms you may be experiencing from allergies, asthma and other breathing or sinus difficulties.
It's Not Just How Often You Clean…But How You Do It.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), some cleaning products can counteract the positive effects of a thorough home cleaning by releasing harsh chemical additives into the air that can irritate your skin and eyes. They can also trigger breathing difficulties in individuals with allergies or asthma.
Luckily, Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products Are Easy to Find.
The TotalProtect Home Warranty team reassures you that you can easily make the switch to eco-friendly cleaning products, without sacrificing cleaning power. There are greener, more affordable choices on supermarket shelves these days that have fewer or no chemicals, are bio-degradable and made with natural ingredients. There are also many stores and websites that specialize in eco-friendly cleaning selections.
Mom And Grandma Did Know Best!
Long before eco-friendly cleaning was trendy, smart housewives used much simpler ingredients to make their homes sparkle. A little vinegar mixed with warm water cleaned their floors, appliances, glass and mirrors. A box of baking soda worked wonders to freshen smelly refrigerators, sink disposals and carpets…it even cleaned their teeth! These ingredients cost only a few pennies per usage, yet are highly effective and as eco-friendly as you can get!
What About The Air You Breathe?
TotalProtect Home Warranty service professionals remind you that eco-friendly cleaning products are just one aspect of a healthier indoor environment. Another big factor that affects your air quality is the efficiency of your air conditioning and heating system. A malfunctioning heater or air conditioning unit often is unable to filter properly, which lowers the air quality in your home.
