Sunlight is a huge factor in reducing bacteria found in household dust.

Recently an important new study by a team at the University of Oregon’s Biology and The Built Environment Center was able to determine that sunlight plays a huge factor in reducing bacteria that can be found in common household dust. This discovery has proven that in order for buildings to act as a healthy space for human occupancy, high performing windows should be regarded as a health requirement for building regulations.

Fleetwood 3800 series replacement windows installed in a home.The University of Oregon’s study showed that sunlight filtered through today’s high-performance coated glass results in about 50% less bacteria in household dust, compared to when dust is left under non-illuminated conditions. Ultraviolet light also acts as a sterilizer, reducing bacteria counts.

The bacteria that survived less within the day-lit rooms were linked to the germs that are known to cause human respiratory infections.

In the 1850’s Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, believed that direct sunlight possessed a purifying effect and prescribed it to her hospital patients. By the end of the 19th century, the Journal of the American Medical Association officially referred to sunlight as “nature’s disinfectant”, using it as a way to treat Tuberculosis.

If your home is a contributing structure in a designated Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) or a historic cultural monument, The City of Los Angeles can help you rehabilitate, restore, and maintain your building with a financial incentive.  (See a list of all HPOZ zones below). Thanks to The Mills Act Historical Property Contract Program, historical building homeowners are able to receive a potential property tax reduction, allowing them to put that extra money towards the renovations and repairs that the property needs. The Mills Act has been assisting qualified historic property owners with tax relief since 1996, benefiting nearly 900 properties in the City of Los Angeles.

Owners of income-producing properties that are listed in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places may take advantage of a 20% Federal tax credit.  The credit is 20% of the amount spent on qualifying historic rehab expenditures.

You can learn more about these incentive and others along with additional historic resources at preservation.lacity.org
