EMF/RF Assessments

Electromagnetic Radiation(EMR)

Axis Environmental Solutions services offer assessments, evaluation, inspection and mitigation of homes and offices with regards to electromagnetic fields and radio frequency radiation exposure. Our goal is to help identify the external and internal sources of EMR pollutants of your living environment.

Home EMF Assessments

For home EMF we measure and check the following:

  • AC Electrical fields- Electrical wiring throughout the entire home, power lines, appliances and all other electronics devices.
  • AC Magnetic fields- Power lines, transformers, motors, appliances, dimmer switches, and wiring throughout your home.
  • DC Magnetic Fields- Building materials and beds in the sleeping areas.
  • Stray Currents on metal gas and water pipes from electrical wiring errors.
  • Stray voltage on metal gas and water pipes, and on Electrical system ground.
  • Body Voltage Measurements- measure of body potential against earth induced by AC electric field sources at close proximity from the sleeping areas.
  • Harmonics (dirty electricity) are a distortion of the normal electrical current waveform and whole-number multiples of the input frequency generally transmitted by nonlinear loads.

Note: The sleeping area is the most critical in the home under assessment that requires the most attention…

EMF Office Assessments

For EMF office assessments we measure areas where most time is spent.

Radio Frequency/Microwave Assessments

One of the major concerns is the increase of Radio Frequency radiation from wireless technology. Studies show evidence of biological health effects after long-term exposure to the wireless technology we are being exposed to on a daily basis,. These studies tell us that the information carrying radio waves (ICRW) are the components that trigger adverse biological responses leading to health effects (.” Dr. George Carlo, Ph.D, M.S., J.D.). For more information on health effects, see Information.

RF Office Assessments

For RF office assessments we measure areas where most time is spent.

RF Exposure from Directional Cellphone Antenna Transmitter

Cell phone antenna tramsmitter

At 50m distance > 10,000 µW/m² At 100m distance <10,000 µW/m²
At 150m distance < 5000 µW/m²  At 500m distance < 500 µW/m²  
At 1000m distance < 200 µW/m² Above 1000m < 50 µW/m²

Note: Exposure levels from cell antennas may vary, some levels may be lower or much higher depending on type of antennas, number of antennas, how many users in the area, time of day etc..

Building Biology Standards Precautionary for sleeping areas:

Fields

Units No Concern Slight Concern Severe Concern Extreme Concern
Radio Frequency µW/m2 < 0.1 0.1-10 10-1000

>1000

THE BIOINITIATIVE REPORT 2012 precautionary standards= 1000 µW/m2

FCC Exposure Limits = 10,000,000 µW/m2

Canada Safety Code 6, Table 5= 10,000,000 µW/m2
