Each inspection includes a comprehensive written report with recommendations on how you can improve the health of your space and thereby the health of your family or employees.

Bau-Biologie®, a philosophy that began in Germany, is a word used to describe a movement promoting the use of healthy building principles as a means to improve living and work spaces and the health of people who occupy them. Bau-Biologie® literally means, “Building Biology™.” Both terms are now used interchangeably and both have exactly the same definition – “how buildings impact life and the living environment.” For more information on Jon visit www.healthyecohome.com
