The more I learn about wholesome housing, the more complex I understand things are.  For instance, did you know…

  • You may want to avoid buying your carbon monoxide detector from a big box retailer?
  • You should test your water at the faucet at least once per year (then use contaminant-specific filtration)?
  • The radon test many people perform when purchasing a home is prone to false negative results?

If you are interested in learning more, the pages on this blog will teach you how to create a healthier home.

And as my clients and readers learn more about the relationship between their homes and their health, they want to know… what specific tools, lab tests, or resources can I use to create a healthy home?

So I’ve compiled a list and made it available to everyone.  Here is a running list of some of my favorite tools & resources for creating a wholesome house!  Bookmark this page, as the list is updated regularly!
