You know your home is not as fresh as it used to be. Maybe it is the scent of last night's seafood dinner that is still lingering in the air. Or perhaps you cannot shake the feeling that a never-ending cloud of dust is suffocating you. Well, most homeowners know that indoor air pollution is a significant problem, but they probably do not know when they should get their home's air quality tested.
When my husband and I bought our first home, we bought a "fixer-upper" to work on for a few months before we moved in. Once we started discussing the improvements we would make to it, I realized that my husband had no idea how different building materials affected the earth and would affect the air we breathed in our home. Thankfully, he did understand that energy-efficiency was important for both the earth and our budgets. To make sure we made all of the right decisions that would help us create a healthy, eco-friendly home, I put a lot of research into building methods and materials that helped us create a wonderful, safe place we now live in. I want to help others build healthier, more eco-friendly homes, so I want to share what I have learned on a blog. Come back soon for tips!
