The startling question “Is your house killing you” is meant to make people think about the choices that they make. No parent wants to harm their family but unfortunately this is exactly what they may be doing without even knowing. There are increases in the obvious signs with the increase occurrence of eczema and asthma. Asthma in particular can be fatal.
Gary Jensen, Owner of the Green and Clean Team said that use of chemicals especially those containing VOCs are the major cause of long term harm to human health. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are chemicals that have a low boiling point. This means that they are easily released into the air that we breathe. VOCs are emitted from some fabrics, carpets, fibreboard, plastic products, glues and solvents; some spray packs and some printed material, paints, varnishes, wax, cleaning products, disinfectants, cosmetic, degreasing products, hobby products, fuels.
This is one of the reasons that the Green and Clean Team are warning people to be careful in their choice of cleaners and the products that they use in your home. Green cleaning is the use of effective cleaning practices and products that protect human health and the environment.
