THE CHIMNEY SWEEP
Don Crole Chimney Services
When we learn how these toxins affect us especially our children we are sure you will want to change the way you live. Like most people, we assumed that if a product is on the shelf at our local market, it must have passed reasonable safety standards and be safe. Of course there is always the products marked as poison or caustic with the skull and crossbones emblem on the label and we know to keep these products out of reach of children.
But did you know that there is actually an alternative to having these products in your home. You can find information on how to change the products in your home environment by visiting our other site at www.nuenergy.ca and choose environmentally safe household products on the home page.
Most people are unaware, I know I was, that regular consumer products that we all use every day have toxins and chemicals that can be extremely harmful to children and our family.
Many of these ingredients would require special handling if used in industry; a chemical laboratory; or in the workplace. The fact is that there are strict rules and regulations required to protect workers who may use these same substances in the industrial environment where they are required to use protective equipment clothing or gloves and masks when using some of the very same products found in every home.
When we use these same substances at home we do so with no protection at all and no knowledge of the danger and with no consideration for ventilation or protective equipment.Many of the household chemicals that can cause serious reactions are listed in toxicology books as having known toxic effects.
Is your home environment or products slowly poisoning your family in their own home causing energy depletion, allergies and other chronic conditions. Some people are also more sensitive than others and their problems can become serious illnesses. Unfortunately many of these reactions take years of repeated exposure to manifest themselves and are sometimes wrongly diagnosed as part of the aging process; considered incurable or even thought of as all in our head. While certain people may be more sensitive than others, and some chemicals may bring on reactions only after many years of repeated exposure or only in a small percentage of the population, chemicals in the home can put everyone at risk especially our children. Children are also more vulnerable to this threat in our time because they sometimes lead sedentary lifestyles spending a lot more time indoors playing video games and watching TV.

Toxins deplete our bodies immune system by continually
creating a stressful environment in our bodies which can contribute to illness
Many symptom that some people have that others assume are imagined, both physical and psychological, have been associated with certain environments including our homes.
Of course at greatest risk are children, the elderly, and those who are already ill. Ironically these same people spend most of their time at home. A recent study announced on CFTO news in March indicated that women who work at home and or are home makers have up to a 55% higher cancer rate than women who work outside the home.
Indoor Air Quality:
There is an alternative!! You can immediately begin
to detoxify your home with environmentally friendly and
natural household and personal care products and clean fresh air. Read on to learn more about improving the air quality in your home.
A secondary issue that we mentioned at the begining was poor air quality or "indoor air pollution".
The quality of our indoor air has been affected by the need for energy conservation and air tight houses.
With winter heating and summer airconditioning we almost never totally air out the house. This means the air circulating in your home is extremely stale and probably toxic or polluted.
This can be corrected with a "Plusaire" system from "Pure Air Plus" that can be installed on forced air residential systems to exchange your indoor air up to 6 times in a 24 hour period.
Those who have had the system installed and where suffering from asthma and those with smokers in the home have noticed the most significant difference with symptoms being reduced by 50% or more.
Just think how different your environment can become if you use non toxic products and introduce fresh air into your home, the results are nothing short of remarkable
The more you eliminate toxins in your home,
the better you and your family will feel.
The Plusaire system from our Pure Air Plus Division has now received Health Canada approval for the addition of ultra violet air purification that will eliminate bacteria, viruses and mold spores. For a better understanding of the importance of and effects of the lack of oxygen and makeup air see our information on the stack effect in homes that cause your heating and other fuel burning appliances to spill toxins due to the negative air pressure in energy efficient homes. Plusaire provides replacement air making all these appliances burn safely and efficiently.
With the information available in our site we hope we have helped you become an informed consumer in today's marketplace.
Try our wonderful and affordable non toxic, chemical free and biodegradable products that are not only safe for you and your family but good for the environment as well. And consider the air quality in your home before you experience any of the mentioned conditions or symptoms. Feel free to contact us for further questions at the numbers at the bottom of this page.
How do Toxins Enter our Body
There are basically three ways that toxins can
enter the body:
by swallowing, by breathing, or by contact with
the skin or eyes.
When most people hear about a chemical poisoning, they usually think about swallowing (ingestion). Every year, over five million household poisonings are reported, the immediate result of accidental ingestion of cleaning, pesticide, personal care and other common household products. Many of these poisonings are fatal, and most of the victims are children
Of course, we don't mean to suggest that everyone
will experience health problems the first time they use a product containing
toxic ingredients, although many people do.
In actuality, most poisonings happen slowly, over a long period of time by gradual skin absorption or by daily exposure in the air we breathe.
Today many people are aware of the fact that indoor air quality can include toxins but are sometimes surprised to learn that indoor air can be much worse to breathe than outdoor air.

According to the EPA, most homes have airborne concentrations and hazardous chemicals that are two to five times higher indoors than outdoors. In one five year study, the EPA reported that a number of homes had chemical levels that were seventy times higher inside than outside.
