Is Your House Making You Sick


Greater Chattanooga REALTORS® (2963 Amnicola Highway)


Is Your House Making You Sick course will be held IN PERSON. 

This course covers threats posed by naturally occurring health hazards such as mold and radon; man-made materials and components such as asbestos and lead-based paint; as well as other air quality pollutants, including environmental tobacco smoke and volatile organic compounds. Learn the sources of these toxins, their affect on our health, what laws provide us with protection from them, and what disclosures are required for them in real estate transactions. You will also learn how to guide your customers in the identification of potentially toxic issues in their homes, in how to reduce exposure, how to test for their presence and extent, and how to remediate the problems so there are no remaining issues that could affect a successful sale and closing.
Course Objectives:
  • Demonstrate the importance of presence/potential presence of indoor air pollution.
