It is many in home that were built for 2002 on up, with the bulk in 2006.
If you are looking at homes check that first.
Also check if any remodeling was done during those years, technically you could buy a home built in 1995 and still have problems.
One easy way to tell is by entering the home after it has been closed up for a while, there is no way to hide the smell.
If you go look at the home tell whom ever not to open any windows until you had chance to enter the home.
If they do before you arrive it's, a warning flag.
