Home Improvement / April 18, 2019
According to a report by the Harvard Joint Housing Studies, more homeowners are interested in healthy home remodeling. This refers to products or methods that can improve the quality of indoor environments.
In this post, your leading home remodeling expert, Handyman Connection® of Matthews talks about the results of the study and what has urged homeowners to choose healthy home improvements.
Around 30% of the homeowners who participated in the survey are worried that something in their home was impacting the occupants’ health. This is more prevalent in younger households, aged between 25 to 34 and those with younger children.
The greatest concerns were air quality, cooking exhaust, dust and mold. Other problems involved pests, water quality, safety or comfort of the house’s structure, and chemical issues such as radon or formaldehyde.
Most homeowners gained awareness of their home’s living conditions when members of the household began experiencing symptoms related to poor indoor environments.
Over one-third have already accomplished home improvements for a better indoor environment or have plans to do them. Almost half have either completed or plan on replacing their air filters, using darkening shades and removing mold.
Though the concern for health issues in our living spaces is increasing, the study discovered that many remodeling professionals are still behind when it comes to energy efficiency and water conservation.
The findings in the study suggest that healthy options may become an essential element of home remodeling. The majority of the remodelers claim that they are well aware of the upgrades. More than half said that these improvements increased clients’ satisfaction, helped them get more clients and improved loyalty.
