I walked into a potential clients home recently and the fumes from the paint gave me a severe headache. I asked her when the house had been painted and she said 3 weeks ago. This could have been avoided if she would have opted for Eco friendly paints. They are not restricted on the colors or finishes so why not choose this option for your health. Make sure to do some research on the paint that you are choosing even if it states “environmentally friendly”. You must first understand what VOC’s are (volatile organic compounds) and how they make a difference in our personal surroundings. VOC’s are carbon containing, unstable compounds that evaporate in our air and react with other chemicals in the air to create the ozone layer in our homes. This of course causes air pollution in our homes making us sick with issues like breathing problems, headaches, eye and skin irritations and in the most extreme cases cancer. I have another client that was having her home painted while our company was servicing her home. We did not detect a paint odor at all just because the home owner used Eco friendly paint. So before you paint that nursery for your newborn baby or any room in the house, think of your health and your families health.

Quite simply you cannot prevent bed bugs, but you can prevent their ruining your mattress. First, Google a picture of a bed bug so that you know what to look for in your homes. Next prepare your home just in case you become a victim.
Most people have the misconception that their homes are to clean to get bed bugs. Ask yourself the following questions and then reconsider that thought. 1. Do you travel? 2. Have you stayed in a hotel or motel lately? 3. Have you bought new furniture? 4. Have you bought anything on line or in a department store? 5. Have you sat in a public place.
All of us can answer yes to any of these questions. Therefore we should all prepare our homes rather than wait until it happens. First check your mattress and box springs thoroughly in the seams and on the top of the mattress. Then with your vacuum attachment vacuum the mattress. Buy a mattress cover and a full zipped in cover for the box spring and the mattress. They are costly but cheaper than buying a new mattress if you do end up being infested. Regarding your furniture, make sure to vacuum at least once a month under pillows and cushions. This keeps dust and dirt out and keeps you aware of any bugs that may be making a home in your sofa.
The attached picture is of a mattress that has been sealed by a full cover on the box spring and the mattress. Invest in prevention today!
