As Spring fast approaches most of the US many households are preparing for spring cleaning by stocking up on essential cleaning products to remove winter's dust. Although many families see cleaning a home as a safe way to keep their family healthy, they are unaware of the dangers that industrial chemicals are bringing into their homes.
An article from a Green House Eco-Cleaning said the average American home contains gallons of toxic chemicals.
"If your cleaning products are claiming to have industrial strength, instead of taking that as a reason to purchase, you should probably take this as a cue that maybe the chemicals inside are more than what your family needs," says Fernando Perez, a spokesperson for DistinctBright.
“keep out of reach of children,” is a standard warning on labels, but we often neglect the fact that if a substance is not safe for children to be around, it is also dangerous for adults.
The biggest danger while cleaning using harsh chemicals is the direct contact chemical fumes have with the respiratory system. Through prolonged exposure to these products, the toxin levels in the body can increase until a real health problem is present. Shortness of breathe, brain damage, desensitized smell, and sinus issues are common issues associated with inhaling the fumes from household cleaners.
So, what toxins are often present in household cleaners?
Could be neurotoxins, endocrine disrupters and carcinogens among others.
Along with the health problems mentioned above, common household cleaners have also been linked to causing conditions such as skin irritations, causing weakened nails, hair, and cell regeneration.
