With only two weeks left to go until Christmas, it’s likely you’ll be embarking on some last minute holiday shopping excursions in the days to come. Perhaps you need some help coming up with great holiday gift ideas.

Well, let’s see…how much do you love the people on your list? The way we see it, true love is declared by showing how much you care for a person’s health. Maybe today’s blog will provide you with the perfect ideas! At DF Technical & Consulting Services Ltd., we’d like to suggest some holiday gifts that work to purify the air.

Radon detector.

We’ve dedicated many a blog to radon and its dangers. This past July, our “What Is Radon And How Can It Impact Our Health?” blog made clear just how hazardous the colourless, odourless and tasteless gas can be. Emanating from the soil in the ground outside our homes, radon can seep into our homes through its cracks and collect in tight spaces. When concentrated, the gas can produce fatal consequences.

As a result, Steven John of BusinessInsider.com recommends getting a radon detector. “A good radon detector will give you both current and historical data on the gas levels found in your home,” he writes, “If it’s consistently high, consider hiring someone to help you seal off the bottom of your house and potentially install a ventilation system under your home too.”

Allergen remover.

Not all air purifiers are created equal. Some purport to eliminate pollutants from the air but only provide minimal benefits. Others provide none at all. It’s best to do your homework on the various air purifiers that are out there. But let us do some of the homework for you! On OneGreenPlanet.org, Kat Smith highly recommends the Honeywell True HEPA Allergen Remover.

“According to the product description, it captures up to 99.97 percent of the microscopic particles that pass through the filters as well as larger airborne particles such as dust, pollen, smoke from tobacco, cooking, and fireplaces, pet dander, and mould spores,” she explains, “It is installed with an activated carbon prefilter, which helps reduce unpleasant odours.”

Natural cleaning products.

Who doesn’t love a sweet smelling home? And who isn’t guilty of purchasing scent-laced cleaning products so that we can achieve those sweet smells after a good clean up? The problem with many cleaning products (especially the scented ones) is that they contain harmful volatile organic compounds, also known as VOCs. For that reason, cleaning products made from natural ingredients make very health-conscious holiday gifts.

“When shopping for household products you use on a regular basis like dishwasher detergent or dish soap, consider a brand like Lemi Shine, which makes cleaning products with natural citrus extracts instead of potentially dangerous chemicals,” suggests John, “Or Aunt Fannie’s cleaners; its glass cleaner, floor wash, and multi-purpose cleaning solution are all vinegar based.”

At DF Technical & Consulting Services Ltd, we may not sell the above mentioned products, but we are still committed to offering you and your family the gift of purified air inside your home this holiday season.
