Raise Awareness About Healthy Homes

Clients may look to you for advice when they discover a home health problem or when a home inspection reveals the presence of lead paint or some other hazard.

To get up to speed on such issues, visit the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (https://www.hud.gov/sites/dfiles/HH/documents/NHHM_StakeholderGuide.pdf). It provides information sheets (see page 11) on common home health hazards, including asbestos, lead, and mold, and their health effects.

The guides are a quick way for you to become more knowledgeable about such topics and provide the best guidance to your clients.

The information also is worth sharing – in blog posts, newsletters, and on your social media platforms – to raise awareness about home health.
