Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Designed for people concerned about the air quality in their home, this step-by-step guide covers the nooks and crannies of indoor air pollution — from what to look for to how to fix it. Jeffrey May and his wife, Connie May, draw from their professional expertise and previous books — My House Is Killing Me , My Office Is Killing Me , and The Mold Survival Guide — to create a friendly, easy-to-use workbook complete with mini-case studies, diagnostic exercises, illustrations, and recommendations.

The Mays describe the health problems that can be caused or exacerbated by such airborne contaminants as fungi, mold, mildew, moisture, and odor. Their warmth, humor, and conversational banter are welcome antidotes to the scare tactics of unsavory remediators; Jeff and Connie give people the knowledge they need to address serious problems without getting ripped off.

Readers can check visual symptoms of their home's problems using the book's illustrations and photographs; get easy-to-follow instructions in diagnosing, addressing, and monitoring problems; find out whether professional help is needed; get advice on choosing the right professional; and consult thorough resource sections for further information and assistance.

From waterproofing basements to checking home heating and cooling systems for leaks and contaminants, Jeff May's Healthy Home Tips helps renters and homeowners alike make sure that their homes are clean and healthy places to live.

Book News Annotation:

Indoor air quality can be worse than that outdoors. Owners of a business investigating indoor air quality relate horror stories of building pollutants and offer tips for assessing and preventing or treating these health hazards. The guide, similar to Jeffrey May's My House is Killing Me! (2001), includes case examples; tips (including recommendations for those with allergies, asthma, or environmental sensitivies); checklists; and resources.
