It was wonderful to participate with Bonnie and The Joyful Organizer in our latest interview. It quickly became apparent to us that DE-CLUTTERING and ORGANIZING, are significant factors in creating a “healthy home”. As a healthy home expert, I continually see clients who have allowed spaces in basements and other living areas to become full with items. When a home is filled or cluttered with paper, boxes, furniture or children’s toys, it becomes very difficult to clean. Dust, dander, mold (if items become wet or damp) and chemicals can accumulate possibly causing health related complaints. It is important to know, what is in your environment and how it may affect you. For example, Volatile Organic Compounds or VOC’s come off everything from personal care products, furniture, paints, cleaners and fragrances. If you are storing items in your home that may be emitting chemicals, you may be raising your VOC levels, and subjecting yourself to health problems such as headaches, asthma, respiratory irritation and malaise.
Keeping a watchful eye on your home is extremely important! Easy to use professional test kits are available to homeowners and physicians to analyze an individual’s home for possible contaminants. Mold, dander, skin cells and chemicals can all be monitored to see if you home is healthy and if you maintaining and cleaning your home properly. It is important to realize that keeping a healthy home is a learning process and a lifestyle change, but if done properly can really help improve the quality of your life, both emotionally and physically.
