The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed a multitude of resources when it comes to indoor air quality, mold, asbestos, lead, radon, and more. One resource I would particularly like to highlight is an interactive tool for identifying specific concerns that should be addressed when remodeling your home.
Why to Use the EPA Remodeling Tool
The EPA provides information on everything from dust control to moisture management to mold prevention both during the remodeling project and after it is complete.
If you are considering a remodeling project, first take a few minutes to review the information provided on the EPA website. Use the planning phase of your remodel to familiarize yourself with the potential problems and hazards of your project. Researching how your indoor air quality might be affected — and learning how to improve it — will pay dividends after the project is completed.
