Build a Healthy Home
Are you more interested in Air Quality? Or you may be more concerned about electromagnetic radiation. Vital Spaces can work with you to pick and choose the areas of most need or help you create a Totally Healthy Home. Leave the stress to us. We will be your advocate and educate your builder on what to do/use and what not to do/ use.
Did you know power lines can create high magnetic fields? And area cell towers can mean high radio frequency in your home even if you don’t have wifi or any radio frequency emitting device? Vital Spaces will assist in property selection to ensure the area is conducive to a Healthy Home.
Air quality is directly related to a host of medical issues from headaches to respiratory disease. Vital Spaces will create a comprehensive plan to create healthy healing air quality.
We will review the project specifications for all building materials and interior finishes and recommend alternate options which will be green, sustainable, and healthy. These products will be lower in toxins, volatile organic compounds, and will result in less off-gassing. We will also review the HVAC system and recommend possible options for improved filtration for VOC’s and particulates (particulates can include viruses, bacteria, and smoke as well as larger particles such as pollen, dust, etc) based on the needs of you and your family.
The goal of a water treatment plan is disinfection, not purification. That being the case, toxic and harmful chemicals are added to “clean” water that already was loaded with heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, and pesticides. All water purification is not created equal and your water purification system should be created around the issues in your municipal water. It is best to implement a point of entry water filtration system based on the area the home is located but even localized filtration is better than none. Vital Spaces will make recommendations for the best water filtration for your home.
Electromagnetic radiation consists of electric fields (caused by voltage), magnetic fields (caused by current and many times faulty wiring), and radio frequency (communication signals such as wifi, radio, Bluetooth, towers, antennae’s, etc). All of these fields are linked to health issues. This includes working with the electrical sub-contractor to explain goals and methods of proper wiring to avoid these fields.
Coordination with the owner, builder, architect, and sub-contractors will be necessary to ensure your home goals are met.
