Have you wondered how to transform your spaces into safer and healthier places that provide well-being to all members of your family? Surely yes.
In these times where health conditions such as allergies, asthma, cardiovascular problems, depression, cancer, and many more are increasing, it is impossible not to think about the health and well-being of our loved ones.
Among all the possible elements that directly impact our health and our family's health, the most important are those we find in our home; for this reason, we need to pay attention to the elements we have in our spaces and the materials they are made of, especially our blinds and shades.
What substances should I pay attention to when buying blinds and shades?
harmful substances to avoid
One of the most important factors when choosing blinds and shades is the decoration of your home or commercial space. However, there is another essential element that you must take into account when making your purchase, and they are the harmful substances that may be present in fabrics or components. Substances such as phthalates, formaldehyde, BPA, and heavy metals, among others, are responsible for critical or chronic conditions such as allergies, asthma, cardiovascular disease, depression, or even cancer. The number of affected people increases alarmingly every day.
Diseases and illnesses caused by these substances
Many substances that are harmful to our health can be found as part of the raw materials in the manufacture of different products that we are in daily contact with, they are the main cause of different health problems that affect our families, co-workers, and even us. Here we share a table with some of the conditions caused by prolonged exposure to these substances. We recommend you save the image on your cell phone to keep it handy and make more conscious purchases in the future.
