Five Tips to Keep a Healthier and Cleaner Home

Keep a Cleaner Home | Duraflow Industries

Who doesn’t want to live in a clean and healthy home? In today’s article, we share five tips for keeping your home cleaner and healthier. See how the simple things — like wiping down your shower, swapping out your air filters and creating a cleaning routine — can make a huge difference for your home.

1. Use Simple or Organic Cleaning Products

There are several household cleaning solutions that don’t involve chemicals. Use baking soda and crystalline soap for deep scrubbing. Use hot water with soap and/or a splash of vinegar for everyday cleaning. If you don’t want to create your own home remedies, purchase all-natural, chemical-free cleaning products.

2. Check For Mold

Regular mold inspections can keep you from getting sick and save you money on mold removal. Check for leaks in your roof, basement or anywhere moisture might gather. Make sure your attic is properly ventilated. Turn on your air vent in the bathroom when you take a shower or bath. It’s also a good idea to clean your shower after every use to prevent soap scum and mold build up.

3. Clean and Change Your Air Filters

The air filters in your house remove germs, smoke and other contaminants from the air. Regularly wipe away any dust or debris that build up on your air filtration units. Periodically replace the air filters in your microwave, furnace, range hood and other ventilation systems. Ignoring your air filter maintenance could have severe consequences on your health and cleanliness.

4. Create a Cleaning Routine

Establish a regular cleaning routine and stick to it. Try and complete a few chores everyday so your home is always in clean and healthy condition. Basic tasks for your cleaning routine include:

  • Sweeping
  • Mopping
  • Trash Removal (always keep a lid on your waste bin!)
  • Vacuuming
  • Dusting
  • Decluttering (find a “home” for every item - don’t put things down “for now.”)
  • Dishwashing
  • Food Storage
  • Toilet & Shower Cleaning

5. Use Smoke Detectors & Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Don’t be caught off guard by an accidental fire. Install a working smoke detector in your kitchen, bedrooms and on every floor of your home. Be aware of potential carbon monoxide leaks in your home. You can’t smell or see carbon monoxide, so a carbon monoxide detector is your only option. Regularly change the batteries in both these devices.

When it comes to a cost-effective method of removing contamination in both air and water, activated carbon is recognized for the contributions it makes to improved health, especially as it relates to air quality filtration systems. So, what exactly is activated carbon and what makes it so unique for improving the quality of the air we breathe? Without getting too technical, it helps to view activated carbon as a form of carbon produced through distillation of materials like peat and wood that is then heated to a high temperature, resulting in a highly porous product that easily absorbs vapors, gases and colloidal particles.
