In every home--large or small, new or old, city or country--there are potential risks to your family's health and the environment. Home*A*Syst helps you identify these risks and take action.
Home*A*Syst begins with checklist questions to identify problem areas:
How safe is your drinking water?
Do you use household hazardous products safely?
Is there lead-based paint in your home?
When you find potential concerns, Home*A*Syst can help you develop an action plan to reduce the risks. By examining daily routines in and around the home, we can all learn to better protect our health and the quality of the environment. Home*A*Syst is a good place to start!
Home*A*Syst will help you investigate and take action on these healthy home topics. Lead in and around your home, indoor air, drinking water, hazardous household products, yard and garden, septic systems, heating and cooling, household waste, storm water, fuel storage, assessing your home site.
