Your entryway is the first thing you see when you come home, and it helps define the mood you will be in upon entering your home. If you have a messy, cluttered entryway, you're going to be agitated by the clutter and carry that agitation into your home.

We often picture dust and fumes when we think of indoor air pollution because they’re either visible or have a strong odor. But what about the invisible, odorless gas called radon that’s naturally occurring in the ground beneath many of our homes? According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US today. In fact, only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths.
It's been estimated that 2 to 5 times more pollutants can be found in indoor air than outdoor air. Two of the contributing factors are: 1.) items found in our homes (like dust, scented products, chemicals, mold) and 2.) lack of adequate ventilation to bring in fresh, outdoor air.
