So how serious is EMF radiation to our health anyway?

emf_spectrum

Good question.  We live in a wireless world, and it gets more so every day. Wireless technology (whether cell phones, wifi, cordless phones, Blu-tooth, etc) produces high levels of EMF. Hate to burst your bubble, but wires can also produce EMF if they have high voltage electricity running through them. But should we care?

The simple answer is “yes.” We should care because, like it or not, our health is being affected. We may not die tomorrow, but the World Health Organization and leading tech-savvy governments and independent authorities around the world indicate strong concerns based on recent studies. Check out this helpful article by the respected Prevention Magazine.

So how can I know if my environment is bombarded with unsafe electromagnetic fields? Give us a call or drop us an email. We’re here to help. We do EMF inspections, both locally and remotely. If you live on planet Earth, we can measure your environment and give you the honest goods on how bad it is and what you can do about it.

We measure for the 3 types of electromagnetic radiation that can cause health problems. Using professional EMF meters, we can tell you whether your property is safe or not and what can be done about it.

Measuring EMF and what levels are considered harmful?

Updated 12.23.2014

We’re EMF home inspectors. We practice in Toronto and Southwestern Ontario. People ask us what EMF levels are considered harmful.  Here we answer these questions. We use the Building Biology Precautionary Guidelines (SBM-2008) For Sleeping Areas showing Magnetic and Electric from Germany. Basically, readings of 2 Milligaus and greater begin to give us concern. This is in the “Severe Concern” column below.

Note: The majority of homes we test give readings in the Severe Concern column of the Table. This is why you should consider a home inspection by our team.

We will be happy to measure AC Magnetic, AC Electric, and Radio Frequency (RF) field
strengths in your home or office and assist in the process of remediation.  Full report, & recommendations are provided.
