These Fumes Could Be Deadly

A great reminder…


Making the switch from cooling to heating creates cozy environments inside for chilly temps outside.  This change could also create a very serious problem that you can’t hear, see smell or taste.  And it answers to the description “invisible killer.”

No, this is not a crime drama to stream for entertainment.  It’s a poisonous and deadly gas that can stream into your home through faulty heating equipment.

Carbon monoxide (CO) – a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas – is the cause of hundreds of deaths each year in the United States.  It’s found in fumes whenever fuel is burned in cars or trucks, generators, stoves, gas ranges or furnaces.  If the equipment is incorrectly vented, improperly used or in need of repair, CO can build up indoors and poison people and pets.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission offers several recommendations in order to keep your home safe from potential carbon monoxide poisoning…

4 Quick Tips to Keep the Stress Away for the Holidays

  1. christmas-cardsChange your perspective.  Pick one task that just makes you sweat during the holidays and look at it in a new light.  For example, if you dread the holiday cards list, enlist your kids to help.  This is an opportunity for some great family traditions: sipping hot cocoa, listening to Christmas music, and addressing cards, talking about the events that are important to each one over the holidays.
  2. christmas-listSkip the shopping list.  Trade the stress of holiday shopping for family members into sharing special moments. Memories and experiences of a holiday show, or breakfast at a fancy restaurant, last much longer.
  3. nutcrackerSkip expensive, high-stress rituals.  Dragging your kids off to see The Nutcracker because of tradition, while they whine every step, might be a sign to make a switch. Families thrive on traditions, but when it becomes less about the event itself and more about time together make sure it is something everyone is looking forward to. When you have complaining kids, rethink expensive, stressful traditions and replace them with simplicity, such as a Christmas Eve take-out dinner, followed by neighborhood caroling.
  4. Focus on what’s most important. That massive pile of holiday cards, the extensive gift list, or maybe it is the several cookie exchanges that are causing you extra stress.  Life coach, Linda Hedberg, suggests refocusing on what’s most important to you.  Just focus on the 10 holiday cards that are most important and send an e-card to everyone else.  It’s a green solution along with less stress!

5 Steps to Reduce Dust in Your Home and Be A Healthier You

dustmiteDo you know what dust is?  Dead skin, pet dander, dust mites, dust mite feces and remains, insect parts, and more!  Yuck!  Everyone breathes better in a home that isn’t so dusty, because dust acts as an irritant to your eyes, nose and lungs. Dust also negatively impacts many items in your home, including clogging up vents in electronics such as your computer, or your refrigerator coils.  Dust accumulates in our homes, so we want to reduce the amount of dust on flat surfaces, floors, and in fabrics and fibers. So take these five steps to reduce dust, and save on extra housework, and keep your family healthier.

  1. vacuumVacuum Regularly – Vacuuming regularly is the most efficient way to reduce dust, but make sure your vacuum has a good filter in it. Vacuums suck up the dust so you can physically remove it from your home, but without a good filter, vacuuming ends up spraying dust back into the air. Vacuuming isn’t only for carpets, though, vacuuming hard floors removes dust better than other cleaning methods.  Also, don’t forget to vacuum these things too:
    •  Upholstered furniture
    • Carpeting
    • Draperies
    • Mattresses
    • Pillows
  2. Dust Regularly – Dusting isn’t hard, but it should be done regularly, and correctly. To remove the most dust, use a slightly damp cloth, which will pick up and hold the dust for easier removal. Start cleaning at the top, and working down, dust first and finish with a good vacuum.
  3. bedWash Bedding Regularly – Washing your bedding regularly will actually reduce the overall amount of your dust in your home. As you sleep at night, your body rubs against the sheets and pillowcase, and you make “dust,” including sloughing off dead skin cells, creating a place dust mites can thrive.  Regular washing & vacuuming helps keep the dust and dust mites away!
  4. dirtyfilterChange Air Filters  – Air filters in your HVAC system, also help to reduce dust, but they must be changed regularly. If you’re concerned about dust and indoor air quality, cheaper filters isn’t always better. If your home is dusty, along with these other strategies, follow these simple tips:
    • Get a better filter
    • Changed filter regularly
    • Install an Air Purifier (preferably one with Capture & Kill Technology)
    • Install a GPS (Global Plasma Solutions) system (Click for more information)
  5. open-windowsOpen Windows – Good ventilation is also key in reducing dust. Homes have become, “tighter,” to save energy costs, reducing air leaks, etc. This saves money, but it doesn’t improve air quality. To reduce concentration of dust in your home let in fresh air from time to time.
