Are you sick of that musty smell wafting up from your basement – or sick because of it? Green building technology is most often associated with the health of our planet, but it can also improve the health of your home. That’s crucial, because indoor pollution levels are typically two to five times higher than those outside. There are plenty of culprits – like the pet hair and dust mites that trigger allergies and asthma attacks, pesticides we carry in on our produce, and off-gassing volatile organic compounds – but damp, dank basements get a lot of the blame.
Evergreen Home Performance invites you to learn the science of healthy homes in a FREE one-hour consult. Even if you’re adamant about maintaining a tidy, smoke-free home, moisture problems, poor ventilation, and contaminants can increase your risk of health problems from allergies and asthma to headaches, nausea, and worse. It’s no wonder that indoor air quality makes the EPA’s list of Top Five Environmental Threats to public health.
The EPA’s Healthy Indoor Environment Protocols recommends integrating healthy home features with energy efficiency upgrades to safeguard and improve indoor air quality – and research shows that this approach works. In fact, moisture repairs alone lower the risk of asthma by 33%.
