3 tips for a healthier home


healthy home

Everyone has a favorite season, and Spring is definitely mine. If you’re one of the millions, though, that suffer from seasonal allergies, Spring can definitely feel less like a friend, and more like a foe. Allergies and asthma symptoms can be aggravated, and it’s hard to know where to start to feel relief.


For me, it makes the most sense to start in the home. So today, I’m sharing 3 easy tips for creating a healthier home. In that vein, I am so thrilled that Bona is introducing the NEW Bona Free & Simple® Hardwood Floor Cleaner, which is now certified and approved by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

This non-toxic, effective hardwood floor cleaner removes at least 93.33% of allergens from hard surface floors, and is free of dyes and scents. It cleans effectively and is hypo-allergenic, so it is safe for allergy-sensitive families.

Here’s a before shot of my floors. There’s definitely a buildup of pollen and other allergens in this part of the home, as the kids and I are in and out of the back door often.

Just spray (or purchase the cartridge bottle that goes right into your Bona mop), wipe, and you’re done.

And that’s it! Floors are clean, shiny and, most importantly, free of allergens and residue.

Another easy tip to a healthier home? Compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs)! CFLs can save three-quarters of the electricity used by incandescent bulbs, and the cost to light your home with CFLs is less than one-third of the cost of lighting your home with incandescent bulbs. While CFLs cost more, they last longer and use less energy.


And lastly, another easy tip for a healthy home is to check the safety of your drinking water. You can do this either by calling your local municipality for water-test results, or purchase a water test kit at your local home improvement store. If needed, install a water filtration system to ensure clean and healthy drinking water.
