WHAT IS BUILDING BIOLOGY?
Originating from Germany, Building Biology is a science that provides a holistic examination of the built environment and provides realistic solutions to create buildings that support the mind, body and soul. These hazards include everything from the products we use to air, water and biological contaminants (mould) as well as electromagnetic fields and geopathic stress.
WHAT DOES A BUILDING BIOLOGIST DO?
A Building Biologist is typically employed to conduct everything from electromagnetic field testing; air sampling for allergens, chemicals and particulates; provide advice on building healthy homes; mould testing; provide recommendations on water filters; conduct pre-inspection audits; provide advice on healthy personal care and cleaning products and to identify and address geopathic stress. Nicole conducts audits of peoples homes. For more information click here.
