Healthy Sustainable Homes
Is the air in your home clean and healthy? Do you or your children have breathing problems like asthma? Could radon be infiltrating your indoor air? Healthy Sustainable Homes wants to help you answer these questions and confront these potential problems by offering a free, comprehensive in-home assessment to evaluate your home's indoor air quality.
The City of Fort Collins is offering zero interest loans for home improvement projects that remove mold, radon and wood smoke from inside your home. Residents can apply for a loan to install a radon mitigation system, replace or upgrade a fireplace or wood stove, or remove mold and moisture from the home. Loan amounts range from $1,000 to $10,000 depending on the type of project.
As soon as you possibly can, secure the inside of your home as a safe and healthy area for you and your family. It may be one of the few places where you have control as you sift through many other problems encountered during flood recovery. It is vitally important you take pictures and/or videos BEFORE you clean up. Documentation will assist with insurance claims. Click here for more details!
