Health@Home: Mold and Moisture: Keeping a Home Dry and Safe
September 10, 2020 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
The Health@Home webinar series consists of four webinars that provide affordable housing rehabilitation specialists and program managers with information on integrating healthy housing techniques into their rehabilitation projects and best practices from practitioners who have successfully implemented these techniques.
This session helps rehabilitation specialists control and address moisture in homes. Moisture intrusion in buildings can increase respiratory risks like asthma and other health problems. Excess moisture also leads to structural deficiencies (wood rot, drywall failures, etc.), as well as the development of mold and other conditions that threaten families.
The session also discusses ways to set up the home to improve home safety and minimize falls, especially for elderly occupants.
This is the third webinar in the series. It covers Healthy Housing Principles 1 and 6.
This training series will enable participants to:
- Become familiar with the Health@Home guidelines
- Design and implement rehabilitation programs that integrate Healthy Housing Principles
- Update rehabilitation standards to include healthy housing measures
Who Should Attend?
This training is intended for affordable housing developers and housing program managers interested in integrating healthy homes and/or energy retrofits with healthy principles in one or more projects.
