5 practical steps to avoid EMF exposure at home.

How to Keep Your Home Safe from EMF Exposure: 5 Practical Steps

In today’s world, we are constantly surrounded by electromagnetic fields (EMF) from various devices such as cell phones, laptops, and Wi-Fi routers. While there is no conclusive evidence that EMF exposure is harmful to human health, many people are concerned about the potential risks. If you are one of them, you can take practical steps to minimize your exposure to EMF in your home.

Step 1: Identify EMF Sources in Your Home

The first step to reducing EMF exposure is to identify the sources of EMF in your home.

You can start by making a list of all the electronic devices in your home and their locations. Some of the most common sources of EMF include:

Wi-Fi routers

Cell phones and other wireless devices

Smart meters

Electric and magnetic fields from power lines

Electrical wiring in walls and floors

Appliances such as refrigerators, TVs, and microwaves

Once you have identified the sources of EMF in your home, you can take steps to reduce your exposure.

Step 2: Reduce Your Use of Wireless Devices

One of the easiest ways to reduce your exposure to EMF is to reduce your use of wireless devices such as cell phones and laptops. You can start by turning off your Wi-Fi router when you are not using it, or by using a wired internet connection instead. You can also limit your use of cell phones and other wireless devices, and avoid sleeping with your phone or laptop next to your head.

Step 3: Shield Your Home from EMF

Another way to reduce your exposure to EMF is to shield your home from EMF radiation. You can use materials such as EMF blocking paint or fabric to cover your walls and windows, or use shielding devices such as Faraday cages to block EMF signals. These materials and devices can help reduce your exposure to EMF radiation and create a safer and healthier environment in your home.

Step 4: Use Low EMF Appliances

When it comes to appliances, some models emit more EMF radiation than others. You can reduce your exposure to EMF by using low EMF appliances. Look for appliances that are labeled as low EMF, or that have been tested and certified as low EMF by independent organizations. You can also avoid using appliances that emit high levels of EMF, such as microwaves and electric blankets.

Step 5: Get an EMF Survey Done

Finally, if you are concerned about EMF exposure in your home, you may want to consider getting an EMF survey done. An EMF survey is a comprehensive assessment of the EMF levels in your home, including measurements of EMF radiation from all sources. A professional EMF survey can help you identify areas of your home with high EMF levels, and suggest practical solutions to reduce your exposure to EMF.

Why is it important to get an EMF survey done?

An EMF survey is important because it can help you identify areas of your home with high levels of EMF radiation. This information can be valuable in reducing your exposure to EMF and creating a safer and healthier living environment. An EMF survey can also help you make informed decisions about the electronic devices you use in your home, and whether or not to invest in shielding materials or devices.

In addition, an EMF survey can be particularly important if you or a family member has a medical condition that may be affected by EMF exposure.

While there is no conclusive evidence that EMF exposure is harmful to human health, some studies have suggested a link between EMF exposure and certain health conditions such as cancer, neurological disorders, and reproductive problems.

An EMF survey can help you identify potential sources of EMF radiation in your home that may be exacerbating these conditions, and take steps to reduce your exposure.

How to Choose an EMF Survey Professional?

When choosing an EMF survey professional, it’s important to choose someone who is qualified and experienced in conducting EMF surveys. Look for someone who has a background in electrical engineering or physics, and who has experience working with EMF measurement equipment.

You may also want to consider hiring someone who is certified by a reputable organization such as the Building Biology Institute or the International Institute for Building-Biology & Ecology.

These organizations certify professionals in the field of building biology, which includes the study of the interaction between humans and the built environment.

Conclusion

Reducing your exposure to EMF radiation is important for creating a safe and healthy living environment. By identifying the sources of EMF in your home and taking practical steps to reduce your exposure, you can minimize your risk of potential health effects associated with EMF exposure.

Remember to reduce your use of wireless devices, shield your home from EMF radiation, use low EMF appliances, and consider getting an EMF survey done to identify potential sources of EMF radiation in your home.

With these practical steps, you can create a safer and healthier living environment for you and your family.

Thank you EMF Inspectrions Ltd for doing our Low Frequency EMF Survey. We had Galin who came to do the survey and he was brilliant. Not only was he polite but very informative and knew his stuff. We were in the process of purchasing a propery next to an electrical sub-station and was worried that the EMF could be penetrating the property. Galin went round the entire property inside and out, down the alley and in the garden and took readings. He explained the different levels of readings and reassured us that all of our readings were below the government guidelines. We are so pleased with the service. We booked on a Monday and had the survey on Wednesday (we could of had Tuesday if we wanted). The report was with us on Thursday which is brillianty written out to explain the readings for people who are not "experts". Would highly recommend using EMF Inspections Ltd to anyone. Thank you again!
