What Kind Of Lightbulbs Do You Use?
Certain types of lightbulbs contain mercury, so it’s important to know which kinds are safe to use. You should always try to avoid using CFL lightbulbs wherever you can. Mercury is toxic to humans as well as pets. We’re sure we all have broken a lightbulb at one point or another. Do you know how to clean up a broken lightbulb properly? There is a necessary procedure to follow. Turning off your ventilation systems, like a furnace or central air, is vital to avoid spreading toxic chemicals throughout your home. Open a window to allow fresh air into the room and ensure no one else is in the room with you. Thoroughly clean the area with a wet cloth and be sure to dry it as well. This will help to avoid spreading mercury throughout your home.
