- Do you have sleep problems, or wake feeling un-refreshed after sleep?
- Do you suffer with headaches, tinnitus or visual disturbances, chronic tiredness, mood swings, heart palpitations, or other serious health concerns?
- Do you feel better when you’re away from home?
If you do, there could be something in your home that’s affecting you.
Sometimes our homes impact our health
rather than being the safe havens
they’re meant to be.
With many of the familiar conveniences of our modern lifestyle – electronic devices, communication and computer technologies, synthetic chemicals used in building materials and cleaning products, as well as age old conditions such as mould and radon – there can be hidden health issues too.
Healthy House Surveys
During a Healthy House Survey I measure and assess a range of these conditions in your home
and recommend solutions as necessary to bring your home back to a healthy background
condition. A survey includes checks for:
Electromagnetic Fields – inside and outside your home
Geopathic Stress – disturbances in local geomagnetic energies
Toxic Indoor Air – from chemicals, mould and radon.
Healthy House Specification
I can give assistance in your selection of healthy non-toxic materials, paints and finishes,
flooring, carpets and cleaning products if you are building, refurbishing or decorating.
Or as a consultancy service alongside your architects and builders.
Some factors within our buildings are now known to be biologically active, meaning they have an effect on our own human biological systems.
Building Biology means
building for life.
The new emerging science of Building Biology is researching and establishing guidelines for exposure to many of these hidden factors in our environment, to determine what is safe and what may be creating increasingly adverse conditions for our health.
As a Building Biology Practitioner, I follow these safe level guidelines during Healthy House Surveys and Healthy House Specifications. They help to ensure we maintain a healthy balance at home.
Human friendly is also environment friendly
Healthy House Survey
Most surveys take up to 4 hours, depending on the size of your home and the issues involved.
Fee £300 – £400 + travel expenses.
As an Architect I can also oversee any specific remedial work to the building, if any is required,
subject to further arrangement.
It’s always a good idea to survey before buying or renting a new home.
