Most of the homes today have environmental problems related either with the building and decorating materials or with the chemical products and technology used daily. These problems affect the health of the people living within the building.

In Biohabita!, we measure a wide range of physical parameters, which determine the health levels of these houses or work places. These measurements are completed by trained staff and follow stablished protocols aiming to obtain objective and verifiable data.

Health determining factors

Historically the materials used to build buildings came directly from nature and were hardly processed. In recent times synthetized and artificial materials have been introduced greatly into construction. A lot of these new materials are responsible for the appearance of indoor air pollutants. Currently man is known to spend 90% of his time in indoor spaces, therefore the temperature, humidity, etc. of these spaces is of great importance.

Biohabita! offers a 3-stage strategy. Firstly, a set of measurements for accessing air quality and indoor air influencing factors (temperature, humidity, etc.); secondly, an assessment report with all the results including a corrective action plan with recommendations; lastly, an optional follow up of the works to be done to resolve the issues highlighted during the assessment.

Measurements are done under the Standard der Baubiologischen Messtechnik SBM 2015 from Institut für Baubiologie + Nachhaltigkeit (IBN)-Instituto Español de Baubiologie (IEB) protocol. These measurements are carried out by a IEB specialist on Building Biology Measurements.

Two of the main problematic sources in the technology area inside the buildings are, the electromagnetic waves created by wireless communications and secondly the electric and magnetic fields created by the electric system. These two problematic sources can be found in nearly 100% of the indoor spaces in our homes and work places.

There is a flow of natural electric charge and electromagnetic fields, coming up from the earth, which affect all living being’s health in the planet. These flows come from radioactive minerals which are disintegrating continuously. Another contributing factor is the earth’s electromagnetism and thirdly the ongoing potential differences between the earth’s surface and the ionized atmosphere. We call all of these phenomena, the earth’s natural radiations. While they are present on all land spaces and plots, the strength and intensity can vary from one spot to another. One should avoid long term exposures, where the intensity is at its strongest.

Biohabita! offers a set of measurements combining radioactivity and magnetic levels in order to identify these geopathic stress zones.
