Why an EMF Survey Should Be Part of Every Real Estate Transaction in the UK?

When it comes to buying a house, there are many things to consider. From the location to the size to the condition of the property, there are countless factors that can influence your decision. However, one factor that is often overlooked is the potential health risks associated with exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF).

EMF is a form of radiation that is emitted by electronic devices, power lines, and other sources of electrical energy. While there is still debate among experts about the potential health risks associated with EMF exposure, many people believe that exposure to high levels of EMF can lead to a range of health problems, including cancer, headaches, and fatigue.

Given the potential risks associated with EMF exposure, it is important to take precautionary measures to limit exposure as much as possible, especially for vulnerable populations such as children and pregnant women. One way to do this is to conduct an EMF survey as part of every real estate transaction in the UK.

An EMF survey involves measuring the levels of electromagnetic radiation in and around a property. This can help identify any potential sources of high EMF, such as power lines, transformers, or nearby cell phone towers. By identifying these sources of high EMF, steps can be taken to minimize exposure, such as shielding or relocating certain electronic devices.

So why should an EMF survey be part of every real estate transaction in the UK? Here are a few reasons:

Protect Your Health

As mentioned earlier, exposure to high levels of EMF has been linked to a range of health problems. By conducting an EMF survey, you can identify any potential sources of high EMF in and around the property and take steps to minimize exposure. This can help protect your health and the health of your family.

Make Informed Decisions

Buying a house is a major investment, and it is important to make informed decisions. By conducting an EMF survey, you can make informed decisions about whether or not to buy a property based on the levels of EMF present. If high levels of EMF are detected, you may choose to look for another property or negotiate with the seller to make necessary repairs or upgrades.

Increase Property Value

In today’s market, more and more people are becoming aware of the potential risks associated with EMF exposure. By conducting an EMF survey and taking steps to minimize exposure, you can increase the value of your property and make it more attractive to potential buyers down the line.

Ensure Compliance with Safety Standards

In the UK, there are safety standards in place to limit exposure to EMF. By conducting an EMF survey, you can ensure that the property is compliant with these standards and take steps to bring it up to code if necessary.

When it comes to conducting an EMF survey, it is important to work with a qualified and experienced professional. Look for someone who has specialized equipment and is knowledgeable about the latest safety guidelines for EMF exposure. This can ensure that the survey is accurate and reliable, and that any potential sources of high EMF are identified.

In addition to conducting an EMF survey, there are other steps you can take to reduce your exposure to EMF in your home. These include:

  1. Minimizing the use of wireless devices, such as cell phones and Wi-Fi routers.
  2. Using wired connections instead of wireless connections whenever possible.
  3. Keeping electronic devices at a safe distance from your body, especially when sleeping.
  4. Turning off electronics when not in use.
  5. Choosing low-EMF appliances and products whenever possible.

By taking these steps and conducting an EMF survey as part of every real estate transaction in the UK, we can protect our health and the health of our loved ones from the potential risks associated with EMF exposure.

It’s also important to note that EMF exposure is not just limited to residential properties. Commercial properties and public spaces can also have high levels of EMF, making it important to conduct surveys in these locations as well.

In conclusion, an EMF survey should be an essential part of every real estate transaction in the UK. By identifying potential sources of high EMF and taking steps to minimize exposure, we can protect our health and make informed decisions about the properties we buy. With the help of qualified professionals and the right equipment, we can ensure that our homes and workplaces are safe and healthy environments for ourselves and our loved ones.

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!
