Healthy and Safe Home

Apartments can have conditions that could cause health hazards to inhabitants. Different factors can reduce the quality of indoor air such as ventilation issues, too high or low temperature, draft, water and microbial damage, radon, mineral fiber, cigarette smoke, noise and uncleanliness. 

If you have doubts about the quality of the indoor conditions, you should primarily contact the property owner or the person presenting them, such as the property manager. They can investigate and fix possible flaws. If the property/homeowner or property manager won’t take action to fix the flaws, you may turn to health inspectors. The health inspector can evaluate the apartment’s condition if needed.
