The moisture of home often becomes a problem in improving also maintaining the home. We should know the symptoms of it first before we want to find the best solutions of this problem. The following paragraphs will discuss about the symptoms up to the effort to overcome this common problem. Follow the solutions below may help your problem.
Non-current drainage is one of causes of moisture problem. It is the most common problem related with moisture of your home opticlimate. The most important thing, the water must be drained away from home. The solution is by making a slope on the ground in the foundation of your home. If you need rain gutters, install it in the proper place. Do not forget to check whether the crack happens in the foundation.
The second cause is inadequate the ventilation. Ventilation plays big role in controlling the moisture inside your home. Reduce the moisture production especially from your kitchen since this part of room may produce the moisture more rather than other rooms. Inadequate of ventilation makes the production of moisture from your home cannot be controlled. The solution is by increasing the ventilation to make the circulation runs smoothly. If it is needed, install the fan inside your kitchen and bathroom. It may reduce and control the moisture production. However, if the humidity level is too high, reduce the ventilation.
Use a conditioner when it is needed only. It is better if you avoid this tool. You can change this tool with add house plants or aquarium to create the sensation of cool and fresh as the substitution of air conditioner. The existence of aquarium can give the adequate air circulation. The greenhouse reflected in house plants are recommended since it may produce oxygen needed for human live inside the home.
7) Waste. Most of our trash goes to landfills – the food, diapers, plastic, paper, glass and metal, as well as tires, batteries, cameras, cell phones and computers (replete with toxic chemicals and heavy metals) that we don’t recycle gets dumped on top of other heaps of trash. This sloppy mess often leaches all manner of nasty things into surrounding soil and groundwater. A new landfill in north Texas will be 25 stories tall when it’s full, after which they’ll open another. Landfills also produce lots of greenhouse gases like CO2 and methane. And then there’s nuclear waste, which we continue to produce even though we can’t seem to figure out where to store it. What to do: Get serious about recycling everything you can. Then increase the demand for products made of recycled materials by asking for them everywhere you shop.
8) Chlorine. Most of the trash that is not landfilled is incinerated. That includes a lot of paper products that have been bleached white by chlorine. Burning chlorine produces VERY toxic chemicals called dioxins. Sound familiar? Dioxin is the poison that almost killed the president of Ukraine, Victor Yushchenkov. You’ve probably seen pictures of his pock-marked face on the news. What to do: Buy paper products that have not been bleached with chlorine, available at more progressive grocery stores. Watch out for chlorinated compounds in foods also.
9) Food. When you go grocery shopping, unless the food specifically says it’s organic, then it is likely loaded with pesticides and genetically modified or engineered organisms (GMO/GEOs), while most meat and dairy contain antibiotics, steroids and other hormones. Antibiotics are used because of the overcrowded conditions in which animals are raised prior to slaughter. But these additives do not have to appear on signage or labels. Notwithstanding all of the assurances, we really don’t know what adding this stuff to our food supply is doing to us, but it can’t be good. Disease-fighting antibiotics are compromised when we eat antibiotic-laden food, and more resistant bacteria strains are showing up all the time. What to do: Buy organic, especially for young, developing children. Organic farmers are much better to the earth and its creatures in many other ways too….
10) International community. While the environment is clearly in trouble in the U.S., it’s much much worse in many other parts of the world. Very few developing countries have pollution controls to speak of, and so the air, water, and soil are often terribly contaminated. Children, again, are the most vulnerable in these polluted environments. What to do: Generally simplify your life; buy only what you really need and think carefully about what you allow into you and your family’s bodies. Donate the money you save from simplifying to environmental organizations that work on a global level.
