The Healthiest Home on the Block
Riverwood Homes cares about your health and well-being. We build homes that are designed to improve your indoor air quality and reduce contaminants in your home. We follow the guidelines of the Indoor AirPLUS program and take additional measures to ensure your health and safety.
Benefits to You the Homeowner
Your health is a huge priority to us. The air you breathe inside a Riverwood Home is fresh. Several times per day, stagnant air is sucked out of the air through a fan and replaced with fresh air that is pulled into the home. This new air is then filtered and distributed throughout the house.
We use MERV 8 filters to remove dust, pollen, and spores from the air inside your home. We also air seal the home to keep outside air from leaking in and bringing unwanted pollutants, smoke, pollen, and dust from entering your home.
We take precautionary steps to ensure that your crawl space stays dry. Moisture in the crawl space can potentially lead to mold growth, which is unhealthy for anyone who breathes mold spores. Our encapsulated crawl spaces have a continuously runny fan to pull the air (and moisture) out of the crawl space and replace it with air from inside the house. We also pipe our gutters away from the crawl space and, where soils conditions require, install foundation drains to channel water away from the crawl space and into a pit drain in the yard.
Certified by Indoor AirPLUS
Our homes are certified by the EPA's Indoor AirPLUS program, which means they meet a rigorous checklist of requirements, such as building with materials and paint that do not contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This third party verification supports our efforts to build safe and healthy homes for our valued customers.
