There appear to be many different health risks combining to pose an increased hazard to life across the globe.

I bring all of this to your attention for one reason. I hope that knowledge and information will help you make wise decisions for the future of your home and hearth, where ever it may be. Sometimes knowing isn’t pleasant, it causes us to confront rather than deny the realities around us, even when we dearly wish ‘it wasn’t so’. Hold your family close. Really evaluate what is important and necessary. Find options that still provide what is needed without risk to health and home. Avoid circumstances that may bring something to your door that may end in catastrophe.
