We offer a range of services to cover all your needs. A qualified Building Biologist uses the latest digital equipment to detect and mitigate contaminants in the home. In the process you will be educated on the hidden dangers of modern life which are often found right where you least expect them, your home.
Whichever service you choose, we guarantee you will feel more confident when making decisions about purchasing products for your family, reading ingredient labels and learning how to reduce your exposure to electromagnetic radiation and other pollutants in your home. Understanding what’s toxic and what’s not, gives you back control.
What you learn will change how you live.
COMPLETE HOME AUDIT
On average we spend about 90% of our time indoors. If you are concerned that your home is making you sick or if you just want to create the healthiest home possible for your family then you will benefit from a COMPLETE HOME AUDIT.
People spend outrageous amounts of money “managing” chronic illnesses without ever thinking about what might be making them sick. Mould, dust mites, heavy metals, chemicals, particulates, VOC’s and electromagnetic fields may all be wreaking havoc with your health.
When you choose to have a COMPLETE HOME AUDIT a qualified Building Biologist will come out and assess your home room by room and educate you on the health hazards of the built environment.
Don’t make the mistake of discovering your house is unhealthy after you have moved in. If you are looking to buy a home it is important to make sure the built environment your family is about to spend most of their time in is safe and is not going to affect their health.
The same applies to renting. Even if it is only short term a healthy home is essential to your wellbeing.
If you are looking to sell your house a pre-purchase audit can add value to your property and gives you the advantage of setting yourself apart from other sellers.
This inexpensive audit can prevent a lot of future problems.
BABY SAFE AUDIT
When we think about keeping our baby safe we tend to think about keeping the bleach out of reach, saucepan handles turned in, fingers out of power outlets and knives away from toasters but there are many more hazards lurking in the home that you may not have thought about.
A BABY SAFE AUDIT is designed to enable you to make safer choices and to make you feel confident you are giving your baby the best start. Once you know what to look for it is easy to create a safe home for your baby.
Prevention is always better than the cure. Learning how to manage the environmental factors which affect health empowers mothers and gives peace of mind knowing you are controlling the things that you can.
Electromagnetic Field Audit
Electromagnetic fields (EMF's) are a part of modern life. Power lines, sub-stations, transformers, mobile phone towers, smart meters, meter boxes, household wiring and appliances, wireless devices such as mobile and cordless phones, routers, baby monitors etc. are all sources of electromagnetic radiation.
Our exposure to EMF’s has increased exponentially. Many health effects are associated with EMF exposure. The most common are disturbed sleep, insomnia, headaches, tingling, loss of short term memory, attention issues and chronic fatigue. Even more significantly, EMF exposure is linked to breast cancer, childhood leukaemia and brain tumours.
The good news is that there is a lot that you can do to protect yourself and your family.
Mould causes various health effects like eye, nose and throat irritation/inflammation, nasal congestion, sneezing, sinusitis, asthma, headaches, coughing, chronic fatigue, Candida, rashes and various skin conditions. If the mould problem is not rectified the health problems will escalate and have the potential to cause long term health effects.
Breathing in toxic mould spores can seriously compromise the body's immune system. This is particularly the case of those with chronic illnesses, the elderly, infants and those with existing respiratory ailments such as asthma.
Simply removing mould does not solve the problem as it will always return unless the source of the problem is discovered and rectified. Specialised equipment is required to measure the amount of moisture in the building material and thereby trace the path and source of the moisture.
