Making your home a healthier place to live doesn’t have to be costly, or overwhelming. Just a few small changes can make a significant difference. Here are a few simple things you can start doing today to improve the overall health of your home.

  1. Use Natural Carpet Cleaners

With carpet cleaning solutions that are made from natural ingredients, you can eliminate the environmental risks associated with cleaners made from harmful chemical agents. Citrus-based cleaners do not leave behind the soapy residue, which is known to attract dirt, so your carpets will dry faster and stay clean longer. At CitruSolution of Middle Tennessee, our solution contains citrus acid (like lemon juice) and d-Limonene (which is distilled from citrus peels), which not only smell great, but also have even been proven to fight against dust mites and other household allergens. 

  1. Regular Upholstery Maintenance

When sinking into our favorite loveseat after a long day at work, we often don’t think about the dirt and grime that has built up in its fibers after long periods of time. These pollutants can significantly damage the air quality of your home, causing breathing issues and instigating fussy, unwelcome allergies. By cleaning your furniture on a regular basis, you will not only get a longer use out of it – you will also help to promote a safe and healthy environment within your home.

  1. Clean Water

Ensuring that your tap water is clean and free of toxins is a great way to improve the health of your home. You can call your local municipality to confirm that your water is of a high quality, and install home filtration systems to eradicate any unwanted pollutants.

  1. Vacuum:

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – vacuum, vacuum, vacuum! I know that’s something that no one wants to hear. Vacuuming your rugs and carpet reduces the amount of dust, dust mites, and other particulate pollutants that accumulate in your home. Ever go to someone’s home and feel like you can’t breathe well? Airborne particles fall on all horizontal surfaces. While furniture is one target, floors cover more square footage in your home or office. Vacuuming with a good quality HEPA vacuum will remove much of the loose dirt and grime from your carpet and rugs.

  1. Air Purifiers

Besides regular upholstery and carpet cleaning to improve the air quality in your home, adding an air purifier can significantly help as well. Little known fact – indoor air pollution can be five times higher than outdoor air pollution, because the toxins get trapped within the walls of your home. The filters in air purifiers help to eliminate harmful particles that go unseen by the human eye, and erase unwelcome odors.

Use these five, easy to follow tips, and you’ll have made a world of difference in creating a cleaner and healthier home! Schedule your next carpet or upholstery cleaning with CitruSolution of Middle Tennessee to improve the health of your home today!
