Get a Free Indoor Air Quality Assessment

Brought to you by the Environmental Services Department of the City of Fort Collins, Healthy Homes is a free program designed to help families within the City limits improve the indoor air quality in their homes.

The average American spends up to 90% of their time indoors and the indoor air quality can be up to 5 times worse than outdoors. In Fort Collins, 1 in 4 homes has a family member with respiratory ailment. The EPA has ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health, so the indoor air quality of your home is very important to us!

Assessments are performed by our Master Home Educators and typically take less than an hour and a half. We work hard to find a time that works with your busy schedule, and there are absolutely no hidden costs or fees.

Included with each assessment is a free radon test kit, we’ll check your home for potential mold and moisture problems, and we’ll leave you with a wealth of information and resources about your indoor air quality and low cost or no cost recommendations you can implement  to mitigate many of the most common problems
