Flood Clean-Up Guide

A guide developed to help homeowners and contractors safely clean up homes damaged in the recent flooding in Texas is available immediately. Creating a Healthy Home: A Field Guide for Clean-up of Flooded Homes is a do-it-yourself booklet that provides easy, step-by-step instructions on how to handle mold removal in flooded homes before starting to rebuild or renovate. Agencies working directly with individuals impacted by the floods can arrange to print the guide for distribution to those needing assistance. Please call the National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) at 877.312.3046 for more information.


I was told that my child's blood lead level was "negative" the last time that I had him/her tested. Should I have him/her re-tested?

Ask your physician for the specific result of the last blood test. If the number was higher than 5 ug/dL, testing should be repeated to confirm. Having blood drawn from your child’s vein is more accurate than a finger stick test. Make sure other children under 6 years of age, developmentally delayed children, and pregnant women get tested as well.
