Choosing An Inspector
The Healthy Home
Some buildings are less than ideal
in providing a “healthy” environment.
They can and do impact the health of occupants some of whom who
spend up to 80 % of their time inside buildings.
It is estimated that twelve percent of people are knowingly
sensitive to the chemical effects of building material components,
residues and invasives.
Building materials off-gas scores of chemicals. On top of that users
and exterior environments add other stuff into the mix.
Chemical exposure can take a toll on the human body.
CMHC’s Healthy House initiative provides tools for designers,
builders, stewards, maintainers, and occupants to mitigate the
unhealthy features of buildings.
David Riley has built or altered several dwellings for people with
building related sensitivities giving him experience with many of
the construction material/ventilation/maintenance/detection issues.
