How to Go Green in Your Delaware or Pennsylvania Home

sidekix-media-I58Xjx0zzBQ-unsplash.jpgNow that the holidays are over, it's time to start thinking "spring" and what better time to "green" your Delaware or Pennsylvania home? It's actually easier than you think to turn your home into an eco paradise and you probably have all you need already on hand!

Make it a weekend project or go room by room this week to spring clean and spring green the property. What's more, when you're ready to sell, homebuyers in Delaware and Pennsylvania will notice that your home is already up to "green" standards or on it's way!

Detox the Bedroom

An easy way to "green" your bedroom is to detox all of the linens and especially the curtains. You may wash your sheets and bed linens often, but how about your pillows? Cleaning your pillows will help keep toxins and dust mites at bay. You can also keep mold away in the bedroom by opening your curtains and shades and letting the sun take care of any extra moisture. Go the extra step by letting the sun shine on your bed linens for the same effect.

Reduce VOCs

There may be a few non eco-friendly products in your DE or PA home— for instance, cleaning products, paint and chemicals. An easy way to clear out the bad is to toss the cleaning products that contain chemicals like formaldehyde and purchase "green" cleaning products. Look for products and paint that do not include VOCs in their contents. Always check labels to make sure you're not purchasing harmful products.


Switch your light bulbs to CFL, eco-efficient bulbs. According to Bright Nest, "CFL is an acronym for 'compact fluorescent lights,' and they function as an alternative to incandescent bulbs." These bulbs do not lose energy to heat and consume less power.


Come up with an easy recycling plan for your home. If you don't already have them, purchase containers that will hold your paper, glass, plastics and place them in easy to reach places. You may even want to visit your local recycling center to find out what you can and cannot recycle in your area. After that, post instructions near your home recycling center so you can gather all of the right products in the right bins.
