If your home has reached the point where it needs a deep clean but you haven’t had time to do it yourself, or call a professional, here are a few quick tips to dramatically improve the air quality and mood in your home: • Use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter and use a damp cloth rather than a feather duster to get rid of allergens and irritants that have made it into your home. If you have a pet, bath and groom them routinely and wash their bedding frequently. • Don’t introduce new toxins by using Green Clean products that are unscented, nontoxic, and non-aerosol. • Keep air circulating by opening windows as much as possible, and run a ceiling fan if it is too cold to open windows. It’s always a good habit to turn on the exhaust fan while you cook to avoid lingering vapors, grease or smoke. We hope these tips help!
