Confounding Cape

The homeowners could not be in their home without feeling very sick. It turns out that there was a toxic combination of gases and moisture in their home. We were able to diagnose it correctly and, more importantly, fix it properly so they could return to the home they love.



The resident described a distressing set of neurological symptoms associated with spending time in the building. After performing a set of diagnostic tests and visual inspections, we determined that the improperly installed floor insulation was trapping moisture. The high moisture content was causing the wood to decay.  Acetone is a by-product of wood decay. The resident is suffering from Acetone Poisoning. We helped develop a plan to fix the problem.
