Radiofrequency EMF Survey
We provide a FREE EMF consultation and our team of highly qualified EMF safety consultants is available to you seven days a week. We love what we do here at EMF testing Ltd and will guide you through the process, answer any questions you may have before the EMF test is conducted, and make sure you have a good understanding of the EMF environment in your home once the EMF test is complete. Our door is always open and we are happy to have chat even if you are simply just interested in learning more about EMF and its impact on our bodies.
The EMF levels are changing every second, so to provide the most accurate readings, we take several readings in each room and any outdoor areas that belong to the property over a certain period of time.
In the EMF safety evaluation report, you will see all readings taken in each room, as well as the average value and how the highest recorded reading compares to the international guidelines (ICNIRP) as well as Salzburg building biology reference levels.
Radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF EMF) is the term used to describe the part of the electromagnetic spectrum comprising the frequency range from 100 kHz to 300 GHz.
Non-ionizing RF EMF fields are used in a variety of technologies, most widely for communication purposes (e.g. mobile phones, base stations, Wi-Fi routers, 5G/4G/3G/2G, security devices); medicine (e.g. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) equipment); heating purposes (e.g. microwave ovens); wireless power transfer.
Non-ionizing radiation means that the radiation does not have enough energy to cause direct damage to DNA, however, it has the ability to heat tissue. Electromagnetic fields are also present everywhere in our environment – the earth, sun, and ionosphere are all natural sources of EMF. Radiofrequency EMF travels, expands, and can bounce off of certain materials or get attracted by them, it also gets absorbed by certain materials, which allows for the possibility of effective shielding. This means that measuring radiofrequency EMF can be sometimes tricky, especially when assessing the long term exposure risk in our homes. The good news is, if high levels of radiofrequency EMF are detected in our homes, they can be shielded, in most cases anyway. The EMF survey has to be done thoroughly and by a trained EMF specialist to make sure no hotspots are missed.
There is no standard "safe" distance from the cell towers, as long as there is cell phone coverage in the area, we are being exposed to RF EMF. The same, however, goes for any type of wireless signal wherever we go. So it is important to understand that we simply have to find a compromise when it comes to radiofrequency/microwave EMF exposure.
We also offer EMF testing for any electrical EMF sources such as power pylons, electrical substations, electrical wiring, home,e appliances, or underground cabling, this can be done through our Low-frequency EMF survey.
If you are interested in a more holistic and in-depth overview of the EMF environment in your home, we would recommend conducting our Comprehensive EMF survey. This kind of survey covers all possible EMF sources a typical home could be exposed to.
