This session provides attendees an opportunity to learn about the Building Performance Institute’s work to develop resource tools and credentials for healthy home assessments and remediation. BPI offers a diagnostic certification called Healthy Home Evaluator for diagnostic technicians who analyze and upgrade the performance of homes. This session features a new reference guide called the Healthy Housing Principles for health care professionals who need to understand how homes can impact health and can then communicate what they observe to building occupants and medical professionals that can lead to interventions to reduce exposure and indoor environmental conditions.
- Develop an understanding of the eight “Keep It” principles and how health care professionals can employ them in their work with patients.
- Identify the common sources of moisture and effective strategies to reduce indoor dampness.
- Describe the concept of integrated pest management (IPM) and the key components to implementing IPM in homes.
- List at least three sources of contaminants in homes that need exhaust ventilation to help promote a healthy indoor environment.
