A Healthy Home Check is an essential step homeowners must take as part of their homeownership journey. By detecting preventable issues in your home and creating a mitigation plan, you can enhance your quality of life, save money on unnecessary repairs, and protect your most valuable investment, your home. Furthermore, you can save thousands in costly repairs that could have been avoided and protect your health from preventable illnesses, including asthma and other respiratory conditions.
