Women Concerned About Health Risks Yet Lack Knowledge to Promote Wellness at Home

The following is an interesting commentary from Maid Brigade and Despite its plug for Maid Brigade, it is a great report on indoor pollution. 

"Roughly half of women worry about cross-contamination of germs when cleaning and lack confidence that their home is sanitary, according to a new survey conducted by Maid Brigade and Mom Corps. Despite elevated concerns about the safety and health of their home environments and the recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warning that indoor environments are two to five times more polluted than the outdoors, only 27.8 percent of total survey respondents say a 'healthy safe environment' is their primary motivator for house cleaning.
To help consumers become aware of invisible indoor air triggers that can cause potential health risks like asthma and allergies, Maid Brigade has released an educational video ( show how green cleaning can help improve indoor environments. The video explains how to reduce the impact of allergens in the home including combating dust mites, mold, and pet dander and eliminating the detriments to household air quality that chemical fumes from cleaning products and spray air fresheners can also present."
