Description

The old saying “Home is Where the Heart Is” might still be true. But federal studies about “home life” show that literally millions of homes also have HIDDEN HAZARDS.

Think about these startling statistics about “homes”. Could your home be a silent hazard when you thought it was a safe haven? (Statistics from the publication).

  • 24 million homes have significant lead‐ based paint hazards
  • 18,000 deaths related to injuries occur annually in U.S. homes
  • 6.8 million homes contain radon exposures-above the current EPA action level

 

The existence of house related hazards are even more concerning for loved ones. Your children, older family members and visitors, and anyone suffering from the many chronic illnesses are vulnerable to the daily risk when faced with common occurrences of mold, dust, toxins from lead, and old imbedded asbestos. Even everyday cleaning chemicals, and silent and odorless carbon monoxide and radon pose health risks if not effectively treated and kept under control.

Why task risks when there are resources from within the federal government that are  easy to read, comprehensive booklets to help you keep yourself and home safe?
