Health is an important factor that you should consider when it comes to your home. After all, your home is supposed to be your safe space, a place where you and your family can lead healthy, secure and happy lives. It’s a good thing many homeowners these days are interested in the impact of household products on health.
In this post, Handyman Connection of Johnson County discusses why more and more modern homeowners are thinking about health when it comes to remodeling.
Why Homeowners Are Interested in Home Health
More than one third of homeowners have completed upgrades to improve their home’s indoor health. These upgrades can include changing air filters, installing room darkening shades or investing in mold removal. This is because more than 30% of homeowners and more than 35% of renters are concerned that there is a part of their home that may negatively affect their health. This concern is present amongst households with people between 25 and 34 years old and those with children.
Common Causes for Concern
Despite these strong concerns, however, many remodelers have yet to move past the early stages of a health conscious approach regarding materials and practices. Most homeowner concerns have to do with the possible causes of sickness in their homes, such as dust, pet dander, water quality, pests and air pollution. Despite the demand for healthy home features that can help in these areas, upgrades for energy efficiency and water conservation remain more attainable in the home improvement market.
Fortunately, both homeowners and remodelers are becoming more informed about home health issues than they were just a few years ago. In spite of findings suggesting home health may be emerging as a standard of home remodeling, remodelers are still lagging behind, with . home health improvement techniques used in a mere 28 percent of projects.
