Dream Home or Environmental Nightmare?
The foundation of the American Dream begins with the pride of owning a home and experiencing the joy of birthdays, BBQs, and creating lasting memories in that home. While usually homes are filled with happy times and warm memories, unfortunately, unexpected environmental issues can interrupt these moments. Many homeowners do not realize that they can be exposing their loved ones to toxic lead or asbestos during a simple window replacement or kitchen remodel. Some homeowners are unaware of the health risks associated with mold exposure, radon gases, and carbon monoxide leaks.
According to the National Institutes of Health, an estimated 38 million U.S. homes contain lead-based paint and an estimated 24 million U.S. homes contain significant lead-based paint hazards. With lead and mold being a significant health concern and asbestos being a known carcinogen, it is important for homeowners to be educated on the basic hazards, health risks, and the safe way to approach to these environmental dangers.
