5 Healthy Home Habits For Winter

Winter is also better known as cold and flu season. Sniffling, sneezing and coughing can seriously put a damper on your winter activities. So while you can’t control what your coworkers or people in public are doing to put health first, you can control what happens in your home. To stay happy this winter, we share some healthy home habits for you to implement this winter. 1.) Don’t Skip Your Cleaning Ritual The days are getting darker earlier, and the temperature is dropping. When you get home from work or simply have a lazy Saturday, it’s easy to let household cleaning fall out of pattern. In the winter, however, you are bringing home all kinds of germs, so make sure you clean surfaces regularly. You don’t want to be surrounded by germs. 2.) Stay On Top Of Clutter The dim lights of winter have proven to have a negative effect on many people’s mental health. Studies also show that surrounding[...]

Mould Testing Overview - Pros and Cons of Different Methods

by noreply@blogger.com (Corinne) @ My Chemical-Free House

First I want to talk about the most reliable test which is how you feel in the house compared to other places. Unfortunately this is not always as simple as it sounds to execute. There are different ways to undertake this experiment. The simplest way is to stay in your backyard in a tent or all metal trailer without bringing any possessions from the house. The most obvious complication here is that you will need to go inside to use the washroom unless you get a porta potty! You may also be so sensitive that the house has contaminated the air outside (I have experienced being outside of a house and being able to smell the mould).

The next option would be to stay somewhere where other people recovering from mould illness (and MCS) have felt better. This could be a campground, KOA cabin, Airbnb or other rental. I have a lot more details on this in my post on the Locations Effect and Mould Sabbatical.

Once you have gotten "clear" and done some recovering you might be wondering how do you test a house to find out if it's good? Some people can walk into a house and know if it's good for them. But even the most sensitive people usually need to request to spend 3 nights trialling the house. This is not always an option, but you should ask. Usually people sleep better in a house that is mould free, but me and other CIRS patients have found that there is some mould that puts you into a zombie sleep where you sleep more (and then get sicker). So even a three-night test can be tricky.

It is also good to verify the house is safe with mould testing. The most common test for CIRS (mould patients) is the ERMI. It is highly recommended by Shoemaker certified doctors as the test to use. The range of the ERMI scores goes from minus 10 to positive 20. You need a score or 2 or lower to be treated and recover from mould illness according to Dr. Shoemaker.

Other types of mould tests can also be useful. A tape lift will get you definitive results on visible mould. I look at the options below. This is a very simple overview just to give you the general idea of what is out there in a way that is not overwhelming - you may want to look more into each of these different methods. Please note that my sources were biased towards mould advocates Lisa Petrison from Paradigm Change, Greg Muske from Biotoxin Journey, Dr. Shoemaker and Cheryl Ciecko, an architect who specialises in mould. I have attempted to cross-check their information. However, going with information from the companies that do house inspections can be biased and contradictory. (All sources at end of post, which you can read for more detail).

ERMI

Cons

- Doesn’t work well in brand new houses.

- You need dust that has settled for a while (wait 4-6 weeks to re-test an area).

- Having very little dust or a high amount of dust can skew results.

- Having a high amount of outside dirt inside can skew results. Having high or low outdoor spores counts can skew results.

- May not be an even distribution of spores throughout the house if mould is only coming from one place and the house is large.

- It is known to miss major mould problems when people are very sick in their house. Similarly, after a remediation, a CIRS patient can still be sick from the mycotoxins left behind despite a low score.


Pros

-"Only the ERMI and HERTSMI have been associated with sequential activation of innate immune responses, not air testing.” Dr. Shoemaker. Meaning it is the only test that he found that is consistently in line with lab results for CIRS, despite its drawbacks.

- Vacuum method can pick of heavy spores like Stachy and the Swifer method can also be used to pick up places with accumulated dust that has been there for 4 months. John Banta always tries to use the vacuum method over swipe method.

- It's pretty affordable at $300. You do it yourself. The lab recommended is Mycometrics.

HERTSMI-2

-Similar to ERMI but tests for a handful of moulds most commonly associated with water damaged buildings. It is cheaper than ERMI. I would go for the full ERMI and you can still calculate your HERTSMI value from that. Shoemaker certified doctors will consider your HERTSMI score as well as ERMI score.

Tape Lifts

Cons

- You need to have visible mould.

- It assists you with what type of mould it is and not how widespread the problem is.

Pros

- Tells you what kind of mould you have when you have a visible sample.

- Allows you to know if this is a toxic mould.

- You can do it yourself.

- It's the cheaper way to test for visible mould.

I used this DIY Tape Lift to test a few areas in a house I go into often. The results came back showing me what type of mould it was. It confirmed that the mould was one that is toxic that comes from water damage. Though you need to get a decent amount of mould on the tape otherwise your results will just show scattered pieces.

Spore Traps (Air Test)

Cons

- Needs to be taken near the source, so you have to know where the source is.

- Shoemaker says: "The industry standard of sampling the air for spores is not an acceptable substitute for many reasons. One of the main limitations is that over 99% of the particles that carry the inflammagens from water damaged buildings are smaller than 3 microns. Spore traps can only detect particles that are larger than 3 microns and therefore, miss over 99% of the inflammagens.”

- Spore traps identify round, intact spores. So they will not catch evidence of past problem that have left mycotoxins.

- Can miss/underreport certain heavy species like stachy.

- Expensive.

Pros

- The test is more standardised than tape lifts, swabs, cultures, and mould-dogs, they claim.

- It is the most widely used mould test.

- You can compare inside and outside air.

Dishes

Cons

- Hard to know where to place the dish to get capture the mould if you don’t know where the mould is coming from.

- Doesn’t get you an accurate relative reading since some mould is harder to catch and some proliferate faster in the dish than others.

- Stachy is a slow grower compared to other moulds in the dish.

Pros

- Can be used in multiple places to compare and for general observation.

- Can give you more details on the exact type of mould than other tests.

- Inexpensive.

- John Banta does a culture of the dust used for ERMI to compare and get more details

Here is one you can do yourself.

Mould Dogs

Cons

- Can only detect a handful of moulds.

- Hard to know if they are well trained, look for good references of the company.

- They can’t tell you if it’s high amount of mould or a trace from after a remediation.

- The dog can only sniff in areas where they can reach.

Pros

- They are good at finding the source if it is within their reach.

- The dog can smell both live and dead mould.

- You can pinpoint the area where you need to do further testing.

VOC testing

Cons

- There is controversy around the accuracy of this testing.

- Not widely used.

Pros

- Test the levels of mycotoxins and other VOCs in the air.

Here is a company that does this kind of testing that is recommended. It goes to an AIHA accredited lab.

Latex Mattress Allergy | PlushBeds Green Sleep Blog

Latex Mattress Allergy | PlushBeds Green Sleep Blog


PlushBeds Green Sleep Blog

Latex allergies received a great deal of recognition between the years of 1988 and 1992 when 15 deaths came about, along with over 1,000 other reports of adverse health effects due to exposure to latex. Current estimates, according to the United States Department of Labor: Occupational Health and Safety Administration (otherwise known as OSHA), are that 8 to 12 percent of healthcare workers suffer from some degree of latex sensitivity. Allergies are a notable concern before buying a latex mattress. However, the good news for you is that having an allergic reaction to a natural latex mattress is largely a negligible concern. It is very rarely a problem for most people due to the way latex mattresses are constructed.That doesn't mean you shouldn't exercise due diligence ahead of your purchase, but it does mean that there are processes in place that remove the bulk of risks to consumers.

What’s Up With Thread Count?

by Victoria @ Naturepedic Blog

Anyone who has shopped for sheets has noticed different thread counts. And as Naturepedic customers may have noticed, we recently gave our organic cotton sheets an upgrade and switched from 300 thread count to approximately 400 thread count. But what exactly is thread count and why does it matter? What Is Thread Count? When looking at the thread count of sheets, you’re not just looking at a random number. However, it is a common misconception that a higher thread count directly translates to better quality sheets. Thread count is actually the number of threads per square inch (this includes horizontally and vertically). The finer the materials sheets are made of, the higher the thread count. You can typically assume that the higher the thread count, the softer the sheets. Therefore, thread count has an effect on the feel of your sheets, but it is not the only factor that will affect the overall quality of your sheets. What Else Should[...]

The Power of Napping

by AustinNatural @ Austin Natural Mattress

As most of us know, it’s very difficult to fit in the recommended 8 hours of sleep per night. However, there is a great substitute for this that a lot of us tend to overlook: napping! This little nugget of luxury is something that gets thrown by the wayside upon adulthood. It’s unfortunate since adequate sleep provides so many benefits and even contributes to longevity. Research by NASA shows that naps escalate performance. Their pilots who took 25 minute naps were twice as focused and more attentive than those who didn’t. NASA also found that taking naps enhanced reaction times...

Zero-VOC Sheathing & Subfloor

by noreply@blogger.com (Corinne) @ My Chemical-Free House

Here is an overview of low-VOC and zero-VOC sheathing and subflooring options.

Structural Plywood

Structural plywood (Softwood Plywood - SWPW) can be used for exterior sheathing, roof decking and subfloors. It is made with phenol-formaldehyde glue (PF) in the US and Canada.

The Rate of Formaldehyde Offgassing in PF Plywood

"Formaldehyde levels in this test chamber were well below 0.1 parts per million (ppm) in air from all tests of fresh panels, and emissions rapidly approached zero as the panels aged. In fact, the levels were so low and so close to the "background" levels in the test chamber that is was not possible to measure them accurately." Source APA

The rate in outdoor air is about 0.0002 - 0.006 parts per million (ppm) in rural and suburban outdoor air. Source

While 0.1 ppm is high for someone sensitive, the fact that the panels rapidly offgass should make them tolerable for someone with MCS. I would suggest testing plywood that is a few months old.

A Note on Purebond Formaldehyde-Free Plywood

Purebond plywood is not rated structurally or moisture-wise for sheathing, subfloor or decking. I have spoken to the company and they don't recommend it used for this purpose though I do see people building with this product. I am not sure the consequences of building your subfloor or decking with a non-structural plywood.

Non-Wood Options:

Exterior Sheathing

A non-wood option is Georgia-Pacific DensGlass, which is around 3 times the cost of OSB. It is very low VOC; they are going for GreenGuard certification. It is also a lot more mould resistant than OSB or plywood. Make sure with all materials it fits the codes where you live (in terms of high winds and earthquakes). Make sure it is also compatible with your exterior finish.

MgO board is now starting to be used as exterior sheathing. Another zero-VOC option. It is heavy, structural and more expensive than plywood.

Rigid foam can also be used as exterior sheathing without any ply or OSB. The rate of XPS offgassing is very low, but it does contain a flame retardant. The other option is Polyiso. The Johns Manville brand does not contain a flame retardant. Here is some info on how to brace when using rigid foam as sheathing. This is not structural and should be checked against local codes.

Another structural option is Rewall which is made of recycled beverage cartons and cups shredded and compressed. It claims zero-VOCs. It is paper-faced.

Subflooring

It is possible to use structural cementitious sheeting board (MgO) as a zero-VOC option however when I did this in my tiny house I needed additional framing support underneath. It worked out well for me. Here is an example of the support you need underneath. This is probably only suitable in a tiny house.

For those who can't tolerate wood it is possible to pour a concrete upper floor.

Roof Sheathing (Decking)

Purlins or skip sheathing can be used as an alternate form of roofing which eliminates the need for solid sheathing. This will only work with certain roof types (metal vented attic, in some cases cedar).

Pre-Plywood Options

In the days before plywood, solid wood was usually used:

For exterior sheathing, 1-by lumber laid diagonally was used. This is not an airtight option so humidity and energy issues should be considered. Make sure to use housewrap. Consider double sided housewrap tape so that you get more of an air barrier.

For subfloors, 1-by subfloor were laid diagonally to the floor joints. The subfloor could be planks or tongue and groove. Here is a little more info and a pic of planks. This is a zero-VOC option but it will cost you quite a bit more. If you use this method make sure you use a subfloor adhesive otherwise you will have a very creaky floor. Liquid Nails is the lowest VOC option I have seen at less than 20g/l, but I find Almighty Adhesive to be more tolerable.

For decking, 1x decking butted up to each other can be used. This is how roofs were built before plywood or OSB. This will allow for many types of roofing types over it.

Shipping Troubles

by @ Suite Sleep, Inc.: Latest News

It's a nightmarish scenario:

You've spent weeks, even months, trying to find the perfect mattress, made your decision, and now you just have to wait for it to show up!  Excitement builds when you get a call from the delivery company to scheduled your appointment, you get rid of your old mattress, take time off work to make sure you don't miss them, and then you sit and wait...and wait.....and wait some more.

Unfortunately, the delivery company doesn't show up when they said they would and you've now wasted a few hours sitting around, or worse yet, they've showed up but your brand new mattress has been destroyed.

Sadly, this is a situation we have seen time and again when shipping mattresses with freight carriers, leading to disappointed and upset customers as well as lost sales.  Over the course of the last 7 years, I've learned more about freight, White Glove deliveries, and shipping in general than I ever thought I would, yet no matter how much we try to prevent problems that we see on a regular basis, they continue to plague us.  The troubles we face with freight shipping are based in the fact that these LTL (Less than Truckload) freight companies are not set up in the best way possible to deliver furniture to residential locations.  These companies typically deliver large shipments in a large semi truck to businesses with loading docks, forklifts and teams of people to help unload.  While there is an alternative, white glove delivery can cost upwards of $750 for one mattress, take as long as 2 weeks to deliver, and still doesn't guarantee a smooth and timely delivery.

Over the years, we have tried many different options to get our product to our customers as quickly and safely as possible, and the shipper with the best track record has consistently been UPS.  Over many years and thousands of shipments, we have had just a handful of shipments arrive damaged, or go missing.  This created a problem for us, as mattresses are quite a bit too large to put on a UPS truck!  The solution we came to, is to create a mattress that can be easily broken down into smaller pieces, shipped via UPS, and then quickly assembled in the customers home. 

There are many other benefits of constructing the mattress this way!  

Easier Installation

First is mobility - Latex mattresses can weigh over 300 Lbs., and have little structure to them, making them very difficult to move especially when stairs are involved.  By breaking the inside of the mattress into three smaller and lighter pieces we have made it exponentially easier.  

Customized Sleep

Another benefit is creating customized sleep and the ability to change the feel of your mattress.  As time goes on, our bodies change, our preferences change, and our mattresses don't adapt.  Instead of completely replacing your entire mattress, you can now change just the support layer to adjust the firmness to your liking!  Is your partner unhappy, but you still love the way it feels?  Great!  you can have different firmnesses on either side of your bed so you both sleep soundly. The support layer of the mattress is split right down the middle, and the top layer is kept whole so you will never notice the split below.  The cover is made with a zipper, so once you have laid the foam into the base, you can zip it closed and get a better night's sleep right away!  

Less Wear and Tear

Another problem we ran into is that when the latex foam layers are placed atop one another, movement can cause them to rub together and slowly break down.  To prevent this from happening, make sure your mattress will last as long as possible and make it easier to handle, we have wrapped each internal piece with a thin layer of organic cotton.

We've been shipping mattresses for more than 15 years and have seen it all. We've shipped on pallets, shipped in pieces and even embraced roll-packing technology. Roll-packing degrades the latex more quickly and pallets encourage the use of fork-lifts that inevitably end up spearing the mattress. But when it comes to all latex mattresses, we achieve the best outcomes when we ship them in separate pieces. We break it down into manageable components, box them, band them and send them to happy homes. We look forward to your business!

Environmental Toxins May Contribute to Aging

by AustinNatural @ Austin Natural Mattress

Chronological age is determined by birth date. Biological age is established by physiological and molecular cells within the individual. The latter is influenced by the exposure of damaging substances in the environment, such as chemicals, cigarette smoke, or even stress (gerontogens). Aging occurs when the body goes through a biological mechanism called senescence. During this process, healthy cells become impaired and they lose their ability to divide. Over a period of time, these impaired cells begin to compile, using resources and releasing hormones with inflammatory characteristics. This majorly contributes to aging and age related diseases. Someday, scientists hope that blood...

Sleep deprivation is often caused by stress from your job, a long day of work, or just your mind struggling to keep the tasks of tomorrow straight in your head. Sleep aids are nothing new and we’ve...

Ikea Latex Mattress Reviews - Buyers Guide

Ikea Latex Mattress Reviews - Buyers Guide


The Sleep Judge

I have a friend who frequently suffered from sciatica and complained about it quite vocally – upon my asking, it turned out she was a side sleeper who used a regular open coil spring mattress for her bed. I advised her to switch to latex and it did take her a while (latex is expensive of course), but the back ache complaints went down to almost zero within a few weeks. This anecdote should make two things clear: one, latex foam provides excellent comfort and support, and two, it isn't affordable for mainstream consumers. However, there are manufacturers who attempt to break this trend, and IKEA, with its considerably affordable (if brief) latex lineup, is one of them. Here's a guide, substantiated with honest IKEA latex mattress reviews by yours truly, to help you decide if their offerings are worth your investment. Consider comparable latex mattresses like Lucid or Classic Brands latex mattress.Check out our other Ikea mattress reviews here. Comparison Table What Kind Of Latex Is IKEA
