It is here! It is beautiful! It is spring, sunshine and fresh air!! In the northwest, I believe we should require mandatory sunshine days. We have snow days but wouldn't a free & unexpected day to go be outside in the early spring be even better? As I look out our office window I see blue skies, flowering cherry trees and a slight breeze moving the branches of our fir tree.
Some of the best things in life are simple, effective and free to all. This spring weather is one of those freebies. Besides going outside and absorbing all this wonderful weather, this fresh air is also a major benefit to our homes. Just like us, our homes need to breathe, the fresher and healthier the air the fresher our homes.
Over the winter we close our homes up tight to keep our heating bills down and our homes warm but now it is spring. Open up your windows and let the fresh air in. This is one of the single most important steps you can do to create a healthy home.
Anytime you are cleaning, doing construction, crafts, cooking, laundry, sitting or standing... open your windows. Our exhaust fans remove stagnate and contaminated air but opening up a window brings in new life.
Our homes are a lot like balloons whatever expands the balloon stays in the balloon. In the case of our home, this could be a huge variety of chemicals, particles, germs and who knows what else. Open your windows let the trapped odors and wayward molecules out and in this same process you will let the sunshine, fresh air and new life in!
As always, wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous home & life,
