What to expect : Healthy Home Assessment


Congratulations on making the first step to creating a healthy home! There are a few things I will need from you:

Once the appointment has been confirmed, please complete the brief questionnaire below. This helps me get the information I need to complete the audit.

You will need to make a deposit of $200 to confirm your appointment. In addition, if any testing is required, the cost of this must be paid prior to the assessment – this can be discussed with Nicole.

When I arrive we will go through the questionnaire as well as additional information together, after which I will:

  • Complete a visual inspection of the exterior and interior of the property.

  • Take some readings of areas of interest/need (ie high frequency meter and EMF gauss meter, moisture meter & hygrometer - depending on your need or areas I observe to be of interest)

  • I will make some recommendations to you on site.

  • I will also discuss with you the benefits and limitations of any recommended laboratory testing or referral to a more specialised area - eg RF shielding, mould remediation.

I will then leave and compile a report if requested, including a detailed description of what I found and the latest evidence based research to back up my recommendations.

A report will take between 1-2 weeks to collate as will some of the results from any testing done. This will also be included in the report/ summary report.

An invoice with balance of payment will then be forwarded for you to complete in order for test results and/or report to be released. Once this is completed I will contact you via email or phone to go through the report and/or test results.

Please note that there is no profit made from testing. The costs include the laboratory costs and postage only.
