healthy home

A primary concern for many of our clients is the health impact of air and water pollution. On occasion, outdoor air pollution in China has exceeded the recommended maximum levels set by the EU by a factor greater than 30, and media reports of air and water pollution are common. Homes frequently have high levels of indoor pollutants as a result of materials used in construction and decoration. There are also no legal requirements for a landlord to disclose the history of any previous issues the property may have had, which means tenants may be inheriting hidden sources of lead or other toxic chemicals. Conducting air and water quality testing is the only way to identify risks and ensure a safe home environment. 

No mandatory disclosure laws results in hidden problems like mold, gas leaks, dangerous chemical vapors, and embedded lead. 

PureLiving has designed the Healthy Home package to give residents a comprehensive audit of their home’s indoor air and water quality, as well as checking for possible sources of lead contamination and conditions that can lead to mold growth. The package also includes a thorough inspection of any existing air purifiers and HVAC systems.

  • English-speaking on-site home inspection and testing for common pollutants
  • The use of top quality, calibrated equipment

 

  • Full analysis in easy-to-understand format
  • Personal debriefing with recommended solutions

home testing

The greatest concern of any new or expecting parent is the health and well-being of their infant, and giving them a safe home free from harm. Local air quality in China has on occasion exceeded levels set by the EU by a factor greater than 30, and the poor quality of construction can allow outdoor air to ‘leak’ into the home. Since regulatory protection measures are difficult to enforce, homes frequently have high levels of indoor pollutants.  Additionally, landlords are not legally required to disclose the history of a property and as a result, many homes harbor hidden sources of mold, lead or other toxic chemicals. Conducting air and water quality testing is the only way to identify risks and ensure a safe home environment for your baby.

We have designed this inspection and testing package to give new or expecting parents a comprehensive audit of their home’s indoor air and water quality, as well as checking for possible sources of lead contamination and conditions that can lead to mold growth.

mold testing

China and Hong Kong’s local climate, with wet winters and sweltering summers, provides a near-continuous humid outdoor environment, driving mold growth. Washing, cooking, air humidifiers, unvented clothes dryers, condensation, leaks from the outside, and poor ventilation all produce the kind of indoor moisture that molds need to grow. Homes with mold issues are therefore endemic throughout most of China. Poor construction standards (even for luxury villas) often result in water leaks or buildup inside the home, also leading to mold growth.

Mold can present a health hazard to humans, causing allergic reactions and respiratory problems. Although anyone, at any age, can be at risk from these negative health effects, it is believed that mold exposure in infancy and early childhood can have a particularly significant impact that may not manifest until years later.

Fortunately, the battle against mold is winnable. The first step is to identify the sources of mold, the extent of its growth in a given location, and to examine the conditions that are allowing it to flourish. PureLiving's certified indoor environmental consultants conduct a thorough investigation of the complaint area, including sampling for spore count and type, and help you develop a specific plan of action for making your home mold-free and keeping it that way.

Testing includes

  • English-speaking on-site home inspection and testing for common pollutants
  • The use of top quality, calibrated equipment
  • Full analysis in easy-to-understand format
  • Personal debriefing with recommended solutions
