Make a home safer with Amish bamboo furniture

by Tom Grimes

Dr Frank Lipman, an integrative physician, recently wrote in the Huffington Post that the average home contains anywhere from 500 to 1,000 chemicals that can't be detected by humans, but may end up harming families.

Lipman claims that indoor air is actually two to five times more polluted than the outdoors, because of the toxins that exist in residences, so families may want to consider following a few simple steps to make a home safer.

He states that one simple way to keep things cleaner is to implement a no-shoes policy, which can limit the amount of debris tracked onto the floors. Air filters are also good additions to any home.

Household cleaning products may release toxins into the air, so Lipman also suggests using eco-friendly cleansers that don't include harsh chemicals. Consistent dusting, vacuuming and sweeping may also improve air quality.

According to other experts, synthetic or plastic furniture sometimes has dangerous formaldehyde emissions that can impact health. Pieces of Amish furniture that are made from bamboo are GreenSpec listed and have formaldehyde emissions that are less than .5 percent.

They are 100 percent natural items that can not only make a home safer, but add a natural warmth to any room. ADNFCR-3308-ID-19927848-ADNFCR
