Central vacuum systems are a convenient way to keep your home clean, since you don’t have to carry a heavy vacuum cleaner around the house. The air is expelled outside, which can prevent dust and other allergens from recirculating around your home.
The presence of mold in your home needs to be addressed as it can cause serious health problems, such as asthma and allergy attacks. However, many the harsh chemicals used to kill mold have health risks as well and require adequate ventilation when used. For a greener option, look for products that kill mold without using bleach, ammonia, or volatile organic compounds.
One way to reduce potentially harmful chemicals present in your home is to replace chemical cleaners with natural organic ones. Vinegar is one of the best natural cleaners. Simply fill a spray bottle with a solution of one part vinegar to one part water and use it to clean, deodorize, and disinfect many areas of your home.
