Design With Clean Air In Mind

Summer is in full swing, the kids are out of school and preparing for the latest activities and events. Having this new freedom means now is a great time to begin a new project right? Are you ready to get started on your home makeover project for July? Why not begin in the bathroom. It is always a great place to start. How about adding a steam shower, or upgrading the look and feel to something that says home spa? Or how about a new free standing tub design for that ultimate pleasure. How about a shower by the pool?

When it comes to remodeling, if you know what these newest design items are, you are already thinking in overdrive. There are so many decisions to make. What color is best? What materials are available? What is my current budget? And do I need some design help? With all these questions and more swirling around in your head, vying for your attention, you could easily overlook one other very important question: what impact will this project have on your air quality?

Your remodeling project may kick up some dust; or it may cause temporary, noxious fumes, but air quality considerations go far beyond that. As you remodel, you will want to watch out for pollutants stirred up either from existing materials or new materials being brought in. Here are a few pollutants to check for as you approach your remodeling project.

Lead: Most of us are very familiar with the dangers presented by the presence of lead based paint. Improper removal or disposal of old, lead-based paint is the greatest cause for exposure. If your home was built before 1978, you need to be sure to consult a professional regarding the proper removal of lead-based paint.

Moisture: While a little condensation on the bathroom mirror after a shower is innocuous; if you have experienced a more constant, elevated level of moisture in the home in various locations, this possibly could lead to mold or mildew growth. This in turn can lead to a variety of health issues. Proper ventilation can drastically improve the moisture levels in your home.

Asbestos: Asbestos is a natural occurring mineral that can be very helpful in construction because of their heat resistance and durability. When they are properly sealed and undamaged, this material is safe enough, but when it has been disturbed, the air-born particles can become a serious health concern. If you aren't sure about your home, be sure to read up on what to watch out for before you begin.

Radon: Radon is the second leading cause for lung cancer in the United States. While Radon is undetectable to the human senses, a simple test can indicate whether or not your home contains safe levels of this pollutant.

Put Safety First this year as you begin to increase the value of your home or business. Investigate, do the research, find the appropriate materials for your home and work with us here at Atlas to install new plumbing, fixtures, and appliances that begin your savings programs.

Atlas Plumbing arranged for a subcontractor, who does tunneling, to came out and dig an 18 foot tunnel under the patio and under the house. Other plumbing companies wanted to tear up the patio. Atlas replaced the broken line and then trenched out to the city sewer and laid a new pipe. After the inspector approved the work, they did an excellent job of packing the dirt back into the tunnel and covered the trench.
