With a history of many allergies in Teri Recht’s family, Teri has dealt with a compromised immune system from over exposure to allergens from food and her indoor living environment. Unfortunately, these allergies were passed on to her daughter with a vengeance.
After numerous trips to the emergency room with her baby with difficulty breathing, Teri began looking at her home’s indoor living environment. We found that the insulation was old and carried formaldehyde and other chemicals (coming from off-gassing and other mis-ventilated appliances), rodent feces, and also water damage from years of condensation from inadequate ventilation. Mold was an issue from condensation in basement walls that had sheetrock with the beginning of mold. There was a stove that was back-drafting and bringing CO2 emissions into the house with each use. This is a common phenomenon with many appliances that have not been adequately vented and tested.
With this situation Teri became an expert at the discovery and understanding of indoor health issues. Mike and Teri then turned the direction of their company into fighting these issues and creating a phenomenal community resource and a business that now has a commitment to creating the perfect healthy home at an affordable price.
