A guide to outfitting your home with human-friendly materials, plus advice on maintaining your yard in a healthy manner. Includes a reference to the good, not-so-good and flat-out-harmful stuff found in a typical home. An update of the author's first book, The Healthy Home: An Attic-To-Basement Guide, published in 1989.
Health and safety are a major source of worry to homeowners, and until now books on the subject have played to our fear while giving almost no practical advice on how to overcome these very real problems. "Creating a Safe & Healthy Home" changes all that. This remarkable book shows homeowners how to take back control and manage home health and safety in a responsible way.
The book shows you how to diagnose common health and safety issues around the home, and gives practical techniques for correcting these potentially life-threatening problems.
A wide range of home health and safety issues are covered, including carbon monoxide, radon gas, asbestos, lead, formaldehyde, water contaminants, and accident hazards.
Making your home secure against intruders also gets an in-depth discussion. The heart of the book is in the practical, step-by-step instructions that show how to remedy these problems. You'll learn that you do have the power and ability to stamp out the hidden enemies that threaten the health and safety of your family. Creating a Safe & Healthy Home is the first book of its kind, a book that every responsible homeowner wants and needs.
