It's probably cold outside and your house is sealed up tight. You're cozy and warm, the fire is glowing, and you'll soon be welcoming friends and relatives into your home for the holidays. You've probably also been doing some cleaning to get ready. If you have, you may have some unwanted visitors - VOCs (and we don't mean Very Obnoxious Children!). We are talking about Volatile Organic Compounds. These are the nasty chemicals things that are found inside conventional cleaning products that most people are using to clean their home for the holidays.
VOCs are a major source of respiratory problems and trigger neurological reactions (headaches, nausea, dizziness), to name just a few. In fact, the EPA has found that the quality of the air inside your home can be 2 1/2 times as bad as the air outside! When you spray a conventional cleaner in your home, your release a fine mist of chemicals that is spread through the air. Worse yet, these chemicals settle onto household surfaces where they can remain for months waiting to be ingested by your kids and pets. It is hard to believe but your home may be worse after the cleaning than before.
