How to Improve the Health of your Home
Here at SERVPRO of Southwest Waukesha we often receive phone calls from home owners or real estate agents to help improve a structure before putting it on the market. Usually these calls are to help remove mold from a home. However, there are things that you can do in your home to improve your personal wellness while also preventing mold growth.
Four ways to improve your quality of life in your home:
1. Create a calming space. Come up with a private sanctuary that’s free of distractions, like clutter and electronic devices. Dedicate time to this space so you can calm your mind, gain a fresh perspective and reflect on your day.
2. Let in the natural light. The sun’s light can elevate your mood and promote alertness. Take advantage of daylight by arranging work spaces near windows, using light-filtering curtains or strategically hanging mirrors to reflect more light. Natural light can re-center your sleep cycle and promote vitamin D production.
3. Add more plants. Being close to nature can improve your overall well-being. Plants add color to your home, purify the air and may even reduce stress. Bring the outside in by adding plants to every room in your home, especially the spaces where you spend the most time.
4. Promote air circulation. Proper air circulation provides a regular temperature, removes impurities, and can help prevent mold. Use ceiling fans, open the windows, and install attic vents. The more space there is in a room, the more air can circulate.
