As a parent, it is your responsibility to be sure that you are protecting the health of your children. Do you have a safe environment at home? Even if your home might appear safe, there are potential contaminants that might be harming the health of your child. Whether your child is still an infant or you are raising growing teenagers, you need to prepare your home to create a safe environment.
Dangerous Mold in Your Home
Mold is an unseen danger, especially since mold growth often happens out of your line of sight. If mold is growing under the sink, in the attic, or anywhere else in your home, then it could be impacting the health of your child.
This contamination can occur for a variety of reasons. A leaking pipe or water problems can lead to mold growth within 48 hours. Even if you can’t see the problem right away, the spores can start growing and spreading throughout your home.
There are serious health problems associated with toxic mold exposure. So, if you suspect that there is a mold problem in your home, then it is essential to call a professional mold restoration company right away.
Other Indoor Pollutants
In addition to mold, your baby might be affected by other indoor pollutants. New toys, clothing, bedding, furniture and other items are often manufactured with certain chemicals that can be dangerous to your child’s health. Learn more about the different materials and how they will impact the health and growth of your baby.
Many parents choose to stick with natural materials. For example, you might choose wood furniture instead of plastic because the wood will off-gas fewer toxic compounds compared to plastic or other synthetic materials.
Make sure that you are avoiding certain items that were manufactured before 2014. There are many bedding and furniture items that were manufactured using fire retardants and polyurethane. These chemicals impact the pollution levels of your home. As a result, your child is breathing in the toxic compounds whenever they are in their room or near the toxic materials.
