Is Your Home as Safe as You Think?
You spend so much time in your home that you begin to believe nothing could ever go wrong. This is particularly true if you’ve never run into any health or safety concerns in the past.
However, problems could be lurking, some of which can cause serious illness or injury. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
· Water purity: Your water travels a long way before it reaches your home. For this reason, it may not be as clean as you think. Many people throughout the country use water with lead levels that are above the “legal limit.” As a result, their risk of brain, kidney, and nervous system damage is much greater.
· Dirty humidifier: A humidifier is a great way to prevent dry skin, dry hair, and scratchy throats during the cold months. However, if you don’t clean it often it’s possible you could be adding bacteria to the air – and that’s never a good thing.
· Dirty loofah: It’s a great way to get up a good lather in the shower, but a dirty loofah can force germs, bacteria, and even mold into your skin.
If you can’t remember the last time you checked on these things, don’t wait another day to do so. Your health depends on it!
