Electrosmog keeping you up at night? Suffering unexplained muscle tension or fatigue at your home or office?
Many of our electromagnetic radiation (EMR) clients are electrically sensitive and have difficulty sleeping, get headaches or ringing in the ears, or have other symptoms from electrosmog. We help our clients create a more natural and health-supporting spaces by reducing artificial electromagnetic fields (EMFs).
Symptoms of electromagnetic sensitivity (headache, muscle tension, sleeping disorders) can be debilitating. Electromagnetic radiation is invisible and can be extremely complex. Without knowing sources or understanding mitigation strategies, do-it-yourself approaches can do more harm than good.
Solution: EMF/EMR Inspections
Professional consulting and pre- and post-mitigation testing provides certainty and peace of mind.
Many common EMF mitigations are zero cost or even save money (e.g., turning your cell phone and Wi-Fi off at night). In particular cases, further mitigation may be required to achieve a more health-supporting living space.
HBS has the training and equipment necessary to evaluate your building for EMF and suggest practical and effective mitigation strategies.
Anecdotally many of our clients say they sleep better and have less muscle tension after EMF mitigation. One client with electromagnetic sensitivity built his dream home in Hawaii, but when cellular towers and a radio tower were built down the street, he began suffering migraines. Before putting the home on the market he learned about Building Biology EMF inspections and called HBS as a last attempt to keep from moving. While his case was complex and required some rewiring and Radio Frequency shielding in his Bedroom, he now lives comfortably in his dream home.
We regularly identify wiring errors (electrical code violations) that lead to elevated magnetic fields in buildings. By working with electricians we are able to identify and correct the wiring error and the magnetic fields are reduced instantly to normal background levels.
Electromagnetic Field Testing Benefits
Our training, experience, and technology are unique in this area of environmental assessments. While EMF inspections are common and regulations are more stringent in the European Union, few Americans are trained to inspect for EMFs. HBS uses finely calibrated metering equipment and a proven protocol (Building Biology - adopted from Germany) to analyze buildings for electrosmog.
Electromagnetic Survey Services
HBS arrives onsite with numerous meters to measure many types and frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. Surveys can take between 2-6 hours, depending on the complexity of the case and concerns of the client. We usually focus on low frequency EMR in the sleeping and working areas, and high frequency Radio Frequency throughout the building. We are also often called upon to survey property without any buildings. The final report includes a site/floor plan with meter readings, and suggestions for mitigation. Electromagnetic inspections commonly include:
- AC Electric Fields (60 Hz – appliances, lamps, clocks, cords, plugs, etc.)
- AC Magnetic Fields (60 Hz)
- Radio Frequency (High Frequency – cordless phones, Wi-Fi, microwave ovens, etc.)
- Dirty Electricity (aka: “noise,” or “high-voltage transients”)
