Cleaning & Maintenance

Nontoxic Cleaning and Maintenance by WholesomeHouses.comFew people realize how drastically occupant behavior impacts the health of a home.  For instance, did you know:
  • Your mattress and pillows are breeding grounds for mites, which can be killed with a steam vapor machine?
  • You should avoid laundry detergents that use enzymes?
  • Front-load washing machines are notorious for mold & need gaskets cleaned often?
  • Your refrigerator (probably) has a drip pan that acts as a giant petri dish and needs to be cleaned regularly?
  • You should regularly clean and sanitize the aerator (little mesh screen) on your water faucets?
  • It has been proven more effective to vacuum your home less often, but go over each area slowly and repeatedly?
  • Central air systems are heavily associated mold in the home, and need to be cleaned and inspected annually by a professional?
