Dr Frank Lipman, an integrative physician, recently wrote in the Huffington Post that there were many different ways to detoxify a home, but few families actually take the necessary steps to do so.

This can especially be important, since the average house contains 500 to 1,000 chemicals that usually can't be detected by any of the five senses. In fact, Lipman claims that indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside.

One of the best ways to reduce the amount of toxins brought into home is to have a no-shoes policy, which can drastically reduce dirt and other materials being tracked inside. Air purifiers can also go a long way.

Synthetic rugs and wall-to-wall carpets can be hazardous as well, and Dr Lipman suggests removing carpeting and installing natural hardwood floors or ceramic tiles.

Keeping window treatments clean can also help reduce the chemicals in a home because dust and other debris can easily gather on some fabrics. Hanging faux wood blinds is a great way to take a step toward a toxin-free home, because they are much more durable and easier to keep clean. All it takes is a quick, soapy scrub and they will be free of any accumulated chemicals.
