Your Impact Is HUGE
To a great extent, nature is inherently “self-cleaning.”
Nature has UV light and ozone, which sterilize. Water washes grime away. There are only few “trapped spaces” where air and moisture cannot escape.
Microbes are always forced to compete with the elements and endless other species to survive.
Inside, there’s no UV light or ozone, and buildings cannot tolerate being wet. Air is perpetually trapped in modern buildings.
The microbes and fungal spores that come inside daily — each time we open a door — are trapped. They accumulate over time, unopposed. Moisture intrusion often occurs unstopped. Mold’s spores and VOCs are released and build up over time. Chemical toxins become concentrated in our spaces.
Why Invite Risk?
The less we clean, the more these toxic elements increase indoors.
Dust collects — harboring chemical toxins, and on which unseen mold can grow.
A cluttered environment also means we are less able see the health problems with our buildings.
A New, Clean Path
Beautiful, clean practices can benefit you throughout your health journey.
Make life easier, simpler, and even more enjoyable — as you rediscover healthy living spaces.

5 Steps to Freedom
You may be surprised how much cleaning can help your immediate health – even in a sick building.
Imagine — could even a 15% improvement in your daily exposure to irritants and toxins noticeably improve how you feel each day — and set the stage for faster progress in your health recovery?
Look at Children
When we observe kids playing, they demonstrate very little awareness of anything potentially harmful to them.
If we watch long enough, we’ll certainly see children playing in the filthiest of places (toilets, garbage, etc.) — without a second thought.
In this respect, we shouldn’t be like children! Our homes and buildings can become especially unhealthy — unless we take active steps to prevent sick building syndrome.
To be healthy adults, we must become aware of our modern buildings — how they work, how they fail, and how to maintain them.
Buildings Are “High Maintenance”
You probably aren’t “high maintenance,” but the buildings we live in are.
Buildings cannot maintain themselves and, therefore, it is up to us — their inhabitants — to keep them up.
Taking care of our buildings is no small task. Buildings have become more complex in modernity.
An increasingly technological world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by building maintenance, even while having little clue where to start.
Current architectural designs tend to favor complexity, often to boost curb appeal — creating a structure that is more difficult to stay on top of.
Modern retrofits and remodeling of old buildings tends to adulterate the original simplicity. Remodeling old homes rarely improves the health of the home. Instead, it’s usually the far opposite.
More moving parts in a home means more to keep track of, and more to understand.
The first step to stay on top of your home’s maintenance? Keep it clean.
The first step to improving your indoor air quality? The same — keep things clean.
