Demand for Healthier Building Options Drives the Rediscovery of Ceramic Tile

October 5, 2018 | Environmental Services

If you’ve ever had new carpeting installed in your house and found yourself suffering from a nagging cough for days afterward, you’ve experienced the effect some home improvement materials can have on your health. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be a significant health concern, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Concentrations of VOCs can be up to 10 times higher indoors than out, and building materials are among the sources of these noxious chemicals, the EPA says. While VOCs and other home toxins can cause respiratory irritation in healthy people, they can be particularly troublesome to anyone who suffers from asthma or allergies. Many homeowners, striving to minimize the impact of their home improvement or new building projects on the environment and their health, are opting to use less toxic building materials.HomePro Inspections provides quality home inspections and environmental assessments to the Jacksonville area.

Jacksonville Radon

July 13, 2018 | Air Quality Testing

There’s no Radon in Jacksonville….unless you ask the Florida Department of Health! Recently I received a distressing email from an old Navy buddy about the medical challenges being battled by one of our former shipmates. Dave had been the picture of health.  That guy who always took great care of his body.  Worked out regularly even as he turned 50, and never smoked.  Dave has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. You like to think that if you don’t smoke you can eliminate lung cancer from the list of things that can get you, but that thought is not completely true.  Smoking is the undisputed #1 cause of lung cancer according to the Center for Disease Control.  What’s the #1 cause of lung cancer among non-smokers?…..Radon!
