Mike Holmes joins CertainTeed to promote indoor air awareness

Mike Holmes -- a well-known contractor and healthy home champion -- is teaming up with CertainTeed Gypsum to promote indoor air quality (IAQ) awareness among homeowners and building industry professionals.

His initial appearance will take place in Las Vegas at the International Builders' Show (IBS) on Wed., Feb. 5 from 3 to 4 p.m. at Booth C2127.

The campaign agenda involves basic awareness of IAQ and the benefits of high-performance drywall products, specifically AirRenew IAQ Gypsum Board, CertainTeed's VOC scavenging drywall line that recently earned a HOLMES Approved Product stamp of approval. Bolstered with moisture- and mold-resisting technology, AirRenew is designed to capture VOCs and convert them into inert compounds.

"AirRenew helps remove unwanted chemicals from your indoor air – even years after a construction job is done," said Holmes. "Many things in the home off-gas, from the furniture and paint to the carpeting and cabinets. And breathing in these chemicals on a daily basis may be dangerous to your health. It's a real concern. But products like AirRenew are ahead of the game. They're tackling IAQ issues head on. That's something I can stand behind."

Holmes has over 30 years of experience as a contracotr and is the creator of the TV series "Holmes on Homes," "Holmes Inspection" and "Holmes Makes It Right." He heads up The Holmes Group, an international organization dedicated to improving building standards and creating healthier homes via partnerships and product development.
