We all know there are nasty chemicals which can make us sick – and if we know what we’re looking for, we can usually find quite a lot of them. But do you know what toxic chemicals are used during building your home? Is your actual house and your furniture making your family sick? Are your household appliances (fridge, washing machine etc) increasing your cancer risk? How do you know? Are there hidden toxins in your home making you sick? What can you do?
If you’re like most people, you’re very concerned about your family’s health, and you’d do anything to keep them healthy. When you call us, we’ll do a check on the pollutants and poisons in your home and design a solution which is economical, sustainable and fits with your lifestyle. We’re based in, and travel throughout, Queensland, and have contacts and colleagues around Australia.
What can we test for?
If you’re like me, and you remember what faxes and dial-up modems used to sound like, you’ll understand when I tell you: mobile phones and wifi still does sound like that, it’s just below audible level. However, it does still affect your body. This type of signal can disturb sleep, cause insomnia, nightmares, aches and pains in the body. We recommend turning off your wifi when not using it, and have your mobile on flight mode if it’s near your bed, or out of the room if you need it to be on. (If you need to answer your phone in the middle of the night, you’ll probably want to be awake for it) Radiation from mobile phone towers and external wifi can be shielded, and the feeling you get when you wake up actually rested after a good night’s sleep instead of grumpy and irritable will be worth every cent.
Our bodies communicate using electrical signals. Electrical and electromagnetic fields and radiation from wiring, appliances within the home and substations, transmission lines and transformers can affect those signals. If you’ve ever been “zapped” by static electricity you’ll know it’s not fun. Electrical fields do this, to a lesser extent, to the signals in your body. However the signals in your body are so subtle, they don’t need a huge zap to be affected. There are options available to reduce exposure to the electrical and electromagnetic fields in your home.
Chemicals in your cleaning and personal products are often the cause of allergies, eczema, rashes and asthma. There can be other, more serious effects as well. There are a lot of manufacturers who market their products using the “non-toxic”, “dermatologist tested” or “organic” titles, with the attached bigger prices. Unfortunately, when you look at them, they actually have exactly the same ingredients as the ones in the supermarket. Have a look at your products – really – and just check. The materials your home is built from the fixtures, fittings, paint and finishes as well as the furniture can also contain toxic materials. Again, there are other options, and we can help you with the ingredients you need to look for.
As we all know, the earth has its own energies and flows, which humans are adapted to. Sometimes human activity can alter the flow of these very subtle energies, which can cause negative health effects on humans and animals. These energy flows can also seriously and negatively affect feng shui in your home… so if you’ve done your feng shui and it’s all perfect, but it’s still not working, it could be geopathic stress which is altering the flow of chi… and there’s a cure to get these flows, well, flowing, again, in the right way.
If you’re like most people in a humid subtropical environment, you’re probably so over mould it’s not funny. You’re probably sick to death of mould. Really, it’s yucky (that’s a technical term), it comes back more times than a vampire in a horror movie and it feels impossible to kill, right? You’ve probably bleached it to within an inch of its (and your) life and it’s still there! There’s some good news and bad news. There is a natural way to get rid of it, and I’ve written a cute little e-book about that. You can buy “How to Clean Mould Naturally” here. We’ve also got the 11 commonly asked questions about mould report, which you can download by filling in the form on the top right of the screen. That also has questions you will want to ask any cleaners or remediators – you don’t want toxic chemicals in your home, poisoning your family!
If you need a report on the mould that’s in your place, we can come out and assess the level of infestation and advise on the best methods for containing and cleaning. The report is to court standards, and we can also do testing of what kind of mould and how much of it there is.
Now that you’ve seen the many things that can affect your family’s health, you’re probably wondering about whether we can inspect a home before you move in. The good news is YES! We’d love to. It’s much easier to move into a home that you know is healthy than try to remediate any issues you find out about later. And who wants to find out their home is unhealthy when their child is in the doctor’s surgery for the umpteenth time? Call now to book your pre-purchase inspection.
Like most people these days, you’re probably designing your new home or renovation to be as sustainable as possible. Have you thought about the health of your family, and how sustainable that is in your new home? We can help with advice on choice of land, what to look out for, healthy and sustainable plans which suit your lifestyle and budget, and feature energy saving choices. A good home design should enhance all aspects of your family’s life. We’d love to help.
We know your time is valuable. We guarantee to turn up on time, as agreed, or, in the unlikely event that something unforeseen prevents us from getting to you, that we’ll ring you to let you know what’s going on.
We also guarantee that while we’re with you,you are our focus of attention. So the phone is switched to flight mode. (This is also so we don’t affect you with mobile phone radiation while we’re testing for it) Of course, if you’re trying to reach us and get the voicemail, please, leave a message! We will return your call as soon as possible.
Also, we’re only human, and we don’t know everything. So if you ask us a question, and we don’t know the answer, we’ll say so. Then we’ll try and find that answer and get back to you with it.
