You spend a great deal of time in your home, which is why it should not only reflect your personal style and taste, but it should also provide a place for optimal health and well-being.
No matter how clean you keep your home, there are always bacteria, dust, and other items throughout your home that could cause you to become ill or simply decrease your health and wellness.
Whether you’re a health fanatic that wants all the latest and greatest features, or if you’re simply looking for ways to keep yourself healthy while in your home, the following are four healthy upgrades you should consider making throughout your home.
1 Natural Paint
Hopefully your home no longer contains lead paint, but if it does, you need to replace it immediately. Even if you don’t have lead paint in your home, chances are that the paint that was used contains a great deal of chemicals, and this is detrimental to your health. Instead, be sure to replace the paint in your home with natural paint or VOC-free paint. This paint uses natural ingredients instead of harmful chemicals. Not only is it safer for you to breathe in, but it’s also better for your health in the long-term. Natural and VOC-free paint can be found at any local hardware or home improvement store.
2 Jupiter Water Ionizer
Even if your drinking water is safe, it’s still a good idea to have a water ionizer installed in your home installed in your home. Jupiter water ionizers remove harmful chemicals and bacteria from your water before you use it. You can have these placed only on faucets where you gather drinking water from so that the water you cook with and consume is safe from chemicals and other harmful items. You could also have one installed throughout your entire home. Not only will this provide safe water for cooking and consuming, but it will also provide safe, clean water for showering, cleaning, and washing. This will keep all harmful chemicals and bacteria from getting into your home at all costs.
Dust accumulates everywhere in your home, and this can aggravate allergies or cause breathing trouble. While you may not have time to keep up with the vacuuming throughout your home, consider getting a Roomba. A Roomba is a robot-like vacuum that works on its own. It has sensors so that it cannot get stuck in corners or fall down stairs, and it will work tirelessly to clean your home so you don’t have to.
4 Home Humidifier
You spend a great deal of time breathing in the air in your home, so you should be sure that it’s as clean as possible. Installing a home humidifier will reduce the amount of humidity in your home. This will make the air quality better to breathe and can help reduce your risk of catching a cold or suffering from any other upper-respiratory illnesses, especially allergies or asthma. A home humidifier can also help keep the flow of air continuous throughout your home, which will help ensure that any particles in the air are traveling to and being caught by your furnace’s filer before re-entering the air.
