Safeguard Your Family from the Threat Posed by Household Chemicals

Every day New Zealanders are exposed to a number of different chemical substances found in common household products and other materials. Several studies have been conducted in this regard, which say a high percentage of these chemicals are dangerous to the developing brain.

Some such chemicals found in cheap home cleaning products, cosmetics and high-end bath products are harmful to pregnant women, children and even unborn babies. They’re capable of inducing adverse effects resulting in menstrual disorders, couple fertility, miscarriages, low birth weight and structural congenital abnormalities. So it’s clear that the toxicity levels in the air, food, and cleaning products & cosmetics will certainly affect pregnancies in addition to other health issues.

A 2011 study from University of California San Francisco (UCSF) said the bodies of virtually all U.S. pregnant women carry multiple chemicals, including some banned since the 1970s and others used in common products such as non-stick cookware, processed foods and personal care products. Researchers found several harmful chemicals in the bodies of 99 to 100 % of the pregnant women who took part in the survey. The presence of multiple chemicals that have been associated with negative effects in children will have a greater impact than exposure to only one substance. Other studies also confirmed same quantities of harmful chemicals in the blood samples of pregnant women.

Another study in 2014 from Griffith University, Australia, related to health problems detected that indoor air pollutants are 2 to 5 times higher than external pollution. Consider this with the fact that people spend over 90 percentage of their time indoors. The study further said children were more prone to the side effects of chemical toxins.

It’s known to everybody that about 85% of the chemicals used in household products have never been tested for their impact on human health. And many of the home cleaning products used by yourself or some of the service providers could end up health spoilers. Consumers take it for granted that anything on the shelf has been tested, but in practical it’s just the contrary.

In such a difficult situation, one should always rely on reputed home cleaning companies who use safe cleaning products. The high percentage of indoor air pollutants in Australia and New Zealand make it mandatory that you should clean your house premises frequently. Professional home cleaning is a necessity for every week or at least once in a fortnight. Children, stay at home moms and aged family members are at risk of severe illness if chemical-free hygiene is not maintained in their homes.
