A Breathe-Rite Environmental Audit of your Home or Office may Impact your Life
Did you know that symptoms of fatigue, muscle aches, chronic colds, frequent headaches and increased allergies and dizziness may be caused by problems within your indoor environment?
Why do you need an Environmental Audit? Current environmental studies by the American Lung Association, The Southern California Air Resources Board and the Indoor Air Quality Association have discovered ….."The air within the average home may be 5 times more polluted than the air in major metropolitan industrial zones.
The number of new diagnoses for respiratory illnesses (i.e. Asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis, etc.) is growing at a pace that is second only to diabetes. Overall, respiratory symptoms and allergic reactions continue to worsen as the contaminants outside the home/office become mixed within.
When confined or (sealed) within our indoor spaces, these contaminants play a much larger role than we may have previously realized.
The fact is, side effects of indoor contaminants are common. They accumulate over time and usually continue…unnoticed. We actually build up a tolerance and adjust to the effects over time. It may take months, and sometimes years of accumulation, but many Americans are fast realizing that they need to attend to their indoor environment.
According to the CA Air Resources Board and the American Lung Association , "Deaths in Southern California as a direct result of ozone and pollution now exceed those due to our automobile fatalities."
With Breathe-Rite Solutions like our Environmental Audits - Prevention is Possible
Determining the respiratory triggers within indoor environment is not only possible, but it is what we do at Breathe-Rite. Our Environmental Inspections measure and evaluate various components of your home/office envelope in combination with its unique systems to bring awareness of what is physically occurring within the indoor space.
We are trained not only as professionals, but as Whole Building Analysts. We examine the major aspects of how your home is moving energy and functioning around you. We identify and assess structural and design deficiencies.
We draw on this method to create possible solutions for you. With our unique approach, it may no longer necessary to live with invisible environmental contaminants or mystery illnesses. The sources may be identified and addressed - A cure rather than a treatment.
We address the real cause of IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) issues, and save you the expense of continually treating the symptoms of an unknown illness.
The evidence of our building science back round points to one very evident observation:
THERE IS A DIRECT PARALLEL BETWEEN THE INCREASE OF RESPIRATORY / IMMUNE SYSTEM ILLNESSES OVER THE LAST 20 YEARS, AND MISTAKES MADE ‘SEALING-UP’ OUR PERSONAL AND COLLECTIVE INDOOR ENVIRONMENT(S).
Improper ventilation and the introduction of new (untested) building materials mean that potent chemicals, vapors and toxins may linger once they have been sealed within the structure.
This is the focus of the Breathe-Rite Environmental Inspection. We provide an ‘unbiased’ evaluation of your problems, and identity solutions and their projected costs. We save you MONEY by acting on your behalf, NOT selling you a construction fix or costly remediation patch that may not be necessary.
Keep in mind; "The costs of identifying the underlying ‘issues’ are far less expensive than the cost of treating the symptoms."
