Filtrete Brand and Mike Holmes Launch National Healthy Home Contest
Posted on February 01, 2013 at 11:06 AM EST
Families exposed to mold, irritants, toxins and other harmful elements in the home are at risk for developing health conditions like asthma, allergies and hypersensitivity pneumonitis1. In fact, a survey2 commissioned by Filtrete Brand from 3M revealed that about one in four homeowners (24 percent) currently or previously lived in a home that made them feel sick or unwell.

To help homeowners address indoor air concerns, Filtrete Brand, known for its air and water filtration products, has partnered with Mike Holmes, renowned HGTV contractor, on the Filtrete Healthy Home Remodel Contest. One grand-prize winner, selected by Holmes, will receive $30,000 worth of home inspections, repairs and renovations by a Holmes Group-approved contractor. Four first-prize winners will be awarded $5,000 cash to put towards home repairs.
“Making sure your family home is healthy goes beyond cleaning and dusting,” said Mike Holmes. “Homeowners can’t just focus on the problem areas they can see in the home. It’s what you can’t see, like indoor air quality, that can be harmful. That’s why I’m working with the best in air filtration—Filtrete Brand—to educate homeowners on health hazards lurking in the home.”
