The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is celebrating National Healthy Homes Month this month.  Paying attention to both indoor air quality and physical hazards can contribute to our wellness.  Some of HUD’s recommendations to create a safe and healthy environment inside our homes include:  

  • Programming the phone number of Poison Control into our cell phones: 800-222-1222
  • Checking door locks to ensure they are functional and can be opened by a child in case of emergency
  • Switching to natural cleaning products 
  • Taking care of any water leaks right away
