General Information
Description of ServiceExists as a free, indoor air quality program for residents of the City of Fort Collins aimed at improving the air quality of homes by reducing chemical and biological pollutants and promoting safety.

During the assessment, two Master Home Educators will come to your house and go through the following process:

At the end of the walk through, the Master Home Educators will leave you with 3-5 low-cost or no-cost recommendations based on the following categories:
- Chemical contaminants (i.e. toxic cleaning materials and pesticides)
- Moisture problems (i.e. mold or moisture damage)
- Pests problems (i.e. bed bugs, rodents, etc.)
- Ventilation problems
- Asthma and allergy triggers
- Home maintenance
