Healthy Housing Habits – Home Maintenance

The most efficient way to achieve a healthy home is by sharing cleaning, tidying and maintenance responsibilities between ALL family members, men, women AND children!

We are responsible for keeping our pets and farm animals in appropriate spaces and disposing of their waste and uneaten food safely. That way, they do not transmit disease or contaminate our homes or neighbourhoods.

It is important to regularly check the conditions of our home’s plumbing and sewage, walls, roofs and floors, and set aside a small amount every week or month to tackle repairs EARLY, before they become too big for us to handle.

Habitat for Humanity can help you learn basic home maintenance techniques to benefit your home, save money, and who knows, maybe increase your income!

Habitat Trinidad and Tobago offers disaster mitigation presentations on healthy housing habits. We are teaching you how to make your home, water, environment safe, and how to support and accommodate your community when preparing for emergencies, and this information can be critical to your health ahead of the 2020 hurricane season. If your community or organization would like to host a special discussion with parents and teachers, please call 675-1222 or 398-7381 to learn more. You can also visit our Facebook Page @HabitatTNT to contact us to schedule a meeting, and listen out for tips and information daily on Boom Champions 94.1FM in March 2020.
