Look Out for Potential Lead Exposure During National Healthy Homes Month
June is National Healthy Homes Month, and this year’s theme is “Growing Up Safe and Healthy: 5 Minutes to a Healthy Home.” Use this month to focus on protecting current and future generations of children from the exposures of lead from contaminated paint, dust, and soil. A thorough home assessment can deeply impact your health.
The Healthy Homes Do-It-Yourself Assessment Tool walks users through each room and provides a simple, low and no-cost solution to many common healthy housing problems. Learn more about creating a healthy home at www.HUD.gov/HealthyHomes.
