Choose hardwood floors where possible!

DID YOU KNOW? Carpets can be health hazard hotspots. They are likely to carry a heavy burden of dust mites, dirt, pesticides and other toxins brought in on shoes, feet and pets. Carpets can hold eight times their weight in toxin-filled trapped dirt that is well hidden in the fibers and underneath the carpet. The EPA has stated that 80% of human exposure to pesticides occurs indoors. Every time you spray for bugs or use a fogger, the chemicals settle in your carpet and remain there for years.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE TODAY: Choose hardwood floors where possible! If you have carpet, use a two-step plan of action; begin by vacuuming, then use a natural carpet freshener made with your favourite essential oil and baking soda.
