Check Up

Is your bedroom a place of rest and restoration of health?

What influences your house from the in- and outside?

Why do an EMF checkup? Because we need a third party to have an independent look at how we use equipment and measure the main sources of radiation.

EMF check-up

 

An EMF Check-up will give you insights in the radiation levels of your living- or work space.

In many cases the radiation levels can be reduced fairly simple by changing the way we use equipment or run cables. Sometimes the radiation from outside the building is too high. In that case shielding can reduce the load to acceptable levels.  A typical checkup includes switching off the main power supply a few times to determine the basic load of the house / apartment and the quality of the electrical installation.

We use the following equipment during an EMF check-up:

  • High-frequency meter
  • Low-frequency meter
  • test meter for dirty electricity (Stetzeriser)
  • Compass
  • Small voltmeter for errors in wiring
  • Big voltmeter for body voltage
  • Earth wiring check device
  • Db meter

We bring samples of shielding fabric to test which fabric will give the best results in your case.

For normal situations the left case is sufficient, in more specific situation we bring the big case as well.

Before shielding ~ 140 uW/m2;  after shielding 2.4 uW/m2

To assure a healthy living space it is advisable to test for electromagnetic radiation before you buy or rent.

Measuring takes about two hours for a 2 to 3 bedroom apartment, a bit longer for a house or bigger apartment. After the measurements the findings and possible suggestions for improvement will be discussed and/ or  emailed. Measurements are evaluated on the basis of a German standard known as SBM2003.

An EMF check-up of a house or apartment involves and includes the following:

– Visual inspection of the house, garden and environment.
  • Are there any antenna masts or power line cables visible?
  • How does the power supply enter the house?Remodeling and Home Design
  • Any transformers visible?
  • Where are the electricity meter and main switchboard located?
  • General orientation of the house and bedrooms?
  • Rivers, Swamps or lakes nearby?
  • Industry, hotels, hospitals nearby?
  • Average age of the house and electrical installation?
– Visual inspection of the bedrooms.
  • Floor type?
  • Quality of the curtains?
  • Quality of the bed linen?
  • Orientation of the beds?
  • Electrical equipment present?
  • Outlets? Where? Earthed?
  • Type of Lights used?
  • Any wires under the bed?
  • Any wiring behind the bed board?
  • Location of the walls and floor relative to other rooms / spaces?
  • Any mobile masts visible from the window?
  • Neighbors houses visible from the window?
  • Quality of the walls?
– Low Frequency Measurement with tools.

The next measurements will take place first with all devices and power connected. Then with main power disconnected at the main switchboard. Then, if needed, with devices one by one reconnected and switched on.

  • Measurement of the electrical fields present in the rooms, on the beds and at the desks.
  • Measurement of the magnetic fields present in the rooms on the beds and at the desks.
  • Check of the earth connection on outlets.
  • body voltage when using the bed or the desk.
  • Measurement of the quality of the power supply.
– High Frequency Measurement with tools.
  • Measurement of the levels of HF present in the garden, the rooms, on the beds and at the desks.
– Conclusions.

Measuring takes about two hours for a 2 to 3 bedroom apartment, a bit longer for a house or bigger apartment. After the measurements the findings and possible suggestions for improvement will be discussed and/ or  emailed. Measurements are evaluated on the basis of a German standard known as SBM2003.
