The best and most comprehensive solution would be to simply not live in the dwelling during a remodel. Realistically, however, most people don’t have the resources to uproot an entire family for any extended period of time. So, what can you do to protect your family when remodling your home?
During A Remodel
First, everyone involved in your home remodeling project must be aware of your concerns for a healthy house. They need to eliminate toxic chemical and lead hazards and must be EPA lead certified; especially if you have children. Designer, architect, contractor, foreman all need to buy into the idea, so that they can choose building materials correctly and use approved methods. With the proper knowledge, it is no more difficult or expensive to build with good health in mind.
