My New, First Blog!

A healthy home is sustainably clean, and free of toxic hazards. I’m here to share practical, cost-effective ways to keep a healthy home.

First, a bit about me. I offer cleaning-related services for health-savvy San Franciscans. My service, least-toxic and low-waste, is among the first of its kind in the U.S., launched in 1985.

This site is under construction. Meanwhile, here’s what you’ll find on my blog. My first blog, by the way! I hope you’ll find it helpful.


Flame Retardants

Your sofa may be making your family and pets sick. That’s because most foam sofas in the U.S. — old and new— are leaking toxic flame
 retardant chemicals.

But happily, there are safer options! You can buy a flame retardant free sofa. Or, more affordably, swap the foam in your seat cushions for foam that’s flame retardant free.


Canister vs Upright: Vacuuming for a Healthy Home

Keeping a healthy home includes detailed vacuuming once a week or so. And of course, using a HEPA filter.

If you hate vacuuming, it’s a hard job to keep up! But detailing can be surprisingly easy with the right machine. That means choosing between a canister vs upright.


More coming!

Lots more ideas are brewing, as you’ll see in About This Blog.
