Healthy homes offer more than just shelter and protection from the elements. Every single part of your home, from the foundations to the roof, and every aspect of its construction must meet the requirements set by the National Center for Healthy Housing. These basic requirements ensure the safety and well-being of your family.
Let our home remodeling experts at Classic Remodeling Corp. offer you these useful tips to help transform your home into a true ‘healthy home.’
Maintenance and Cleanliness
Regular and daily cleaning don’t just make your home look better, it also helps eliminate potential sources of contamination and disease. As far as maintaining other parts of your home, it’s important to stick to the recommended inspection schedules from your siding or roofing company to help make sure that your home is in good shape.
Moisture and Ventilation
Water is the number one enemy of almost any part of your home. Excessive moisture in your home can rot wood, stain siding boards, promote mold growth, as well as a number of other serious issues. You can mitigate moisture-related problems by keeping your gutters and downspouts clear of any blockages, using a dehumidifier with your air conditioning system and properly ventilating your attic and crawlspace.
Lastly, don’t forget to follow all the necessary safety precautions to keep everyone in your home safe from any injuries. For example, keep all sharp, heavy and toxic materials and equipment in a secure storage area away from where kids can get to them. You can also close all windows in rooms where small children are present so you don’t run any risk of accidental falling. Use your best judgment to make your home a safer place for your family.
