When was the last time your home received a health checkup?
A healthy home provides a safe and healthy environment for your family. We spend about 70% of our lives INSIDE our homes. These numbers suggest that the condition of the home is a primary factor in a person’s overall health. If your home has problems, your health may be suffering, too.
The good news is that most home-based hazards are preventable. And it starts with getting your home inspected.
Of the 137 million homes in the United States:
- 30 million have a defective heating, plumbing, or electrical system;
- 12 million have problems with water leaks;
- 4 million have experienced mold problems within the last year; and
- 7 million have serious damage to the roof.
Poor housing conditions also include:
- a dilapidated exterior;
- structural problems;
- flaking paint
These conditions are all associated with a wide range of health issues, including injuries due to accidents, respiratory illnesses such as asthma, lead poisoning, and even cancer.
