Improving Indoor Air Quality Through the Winter

This has been a winter that many will not forget for quite some time, with record setting snowfalls, and temperatures.  I am sure that the coming of spring will be ushered in with a collective sigh of relief!

In the meantime, protecting your family from the buildup of indoor air pollutants should be a concern for you.  Not only do you want to keep germs at bay, but you should be considering how to eliminate/minimize indoor air pollutants from chemical cleaners and air fresheners.

Many standard household cleaners contain chemicals that actually aggravate our respiratory systems and potentially put our children's nervous systems at risk.
