Home Remodeling Indoor Air Quality FAQ

What does the EPA recommend to keep my indoor air quality safe during home remodeling?

First, the EPA recommends that you follow good work practices including: correcting the underlying cause of any problem, assuming paint in homes built before 1978 contains lead, not disturbing asbestos, avoiding exposure to mold or bacteria, avoiding creating dust, providing ventilation, and protecting occupants from exposure to odors and pollutants.

Additionally, during home renovation the EPA recommends that in order to protect and improve your indoor air quality you:

  • Test your home for radon
  • Not remove lead paint yourself
  • Control moisture with proper ventilation
  • Employ asbestos professionals to remove any problem areas
  • Ensure combustion appliances are properly sized, installed, and inspected
  • Seal ducts that would otherwise be difficult to access.
  • Prevent pest problems
  • Select appropriate paint and make sure it's properly disposed.
  • Minimize the use of building products containing formaldehyde or other VOCs within the conditioned space of the house.
