The goal when making repairs to homes is to improve the living conditions for those who live there. But, if not done correctly, some remodeling activities can cause health problems. Research continues to show the links between our homes and our health. Learn the eight principles of healthy homes along with how to avoid remodeling mistakes that can harm those you serve.
