Every home is different: how it was constructed, laid out, and, of course, the family that lives in it. When there’s an issue, it’s our goal to find a solution. That means listening first to the concerns of the individual homeowner to create a customized approach.
We offer numerous services, programs, and solutions to address the specific issues in your home. We can also provide an all-inclusive routine Indoor Environmental Wellness™ program that assesses, remediates, and continuously monitors the overall quality of life for you and your family.
Ensuring Indoor Environmental Wellness is a three-step process:
1. We identify and diagnose the issue. This means an evaluation of your home and all the factors that could contribute to the issue; not just the surface-level problems.
2. We implement a natural and green solution that addresses all factors that are a detriment to your Indoor Environmental Wellness.
3. We monitor the issue to catch new factors that may develop in the future.
Every minute, we breathe in approximately 2 gallons of air. With every breath, we’re inhaling rich oxygen, but also the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that are floating in the air from the household cleaners we use, as well as the paints and varnishes that cover our walls and furniture, and other allergens that are found throughout our homes. These particles can cause or worsen allergies, respiratory illnesses (such as asthma), heart disease, and other serious long-term conditions.
There are many ways to reduce the indoor air pollution levels inside your home. With an in-home evaluation, we can find out exactly what’s in the air that you and your family are breathing and recommend the right improvements.
EPA studies have found that pollutant levels inside can be 2-5 times higher than from outdoors. After some activities, indoor air pollution levels can be 100 times higher than those from outdoors.
During a shower, the combination of what your skin absorbs and what your lungs inhale adds up to more than 8 glasses of water. That’s the same water that many will filter before they drink or use for cooking, and the same water that contains an EPA-regulated amount of up to 80 contaminants. Drinking water that has a high level of those contaminants (which are worsened after a spill or household hazardous waste leaks into the groundwater) can cause acute health effects.
After a test to determine the contents of your water supply, a number of solutions can be put in place: management of water systems that are already in place; changing shower heads to more healthy-friendly alternatives; installation of an individual water filter for specific areas of the house; or, even a whole home filtration system that is economical, convenient, and the best way to produce healthy, great-tasting, safe water.
“Cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water is as much as 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.” – U.S. Council of Environmental Quality
Bacteria and other microbes thrive on surfaces around your home, particularly on the surfaces we touch often. Kitchen and bathroom counters, doorknobs, and faucet handles are the most common havens for bacteria that can cause illness.
After a whole-home inspection, we use the safest, most advanced sanitizing systems and antimicrobial barrier treatments to minimize any potential risks in the home. We use green and all-natural products and solutions to protect your home.
Each square centimeter of skin alone harbors about 100,000 bacteria. And, a single sneeze can spray droplets that are infested with bacteria and viruses for as far as 3 feet.
Technology has become a part of day-to-day life. While it makes a lot of daily activities easier, it comes at a cost. From alarm clocks to cell phones and other mobile devices, Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) can interfere with functions of human cells.
Although we are just beginning to understand the exposure to EMFs, you can take action to prevent potential health risks.
A survey of the EMFs in your home can help determine where adjustments can be made to minimize your exposure and create new, healthier habits that will limit your contact with EMFs.
You can switch your mobile device or phone to “airplane mode” to limit your exposure.
