The B  KEY to effectively utilizing the
NORMI™ Sanitization Protocol during Construction
(for homeowners and professionals who want a Healthier Home as they build, remodel or plan to move into their new “dream” home…practical advice for everyone!)

Revised to take advantage of the new things we’ve learned since our original offering, this book is designed to provide information for homeowners, professionals, homebuilders, and other construction partners regarding the Mold-Free Process, a process by which the problems of mold, mildew, bacteria and other microbiological contaminants may be controlled and, in some cases, eliminated by decisions made during the building process.  Many of the problems relating to mold and mildew proliferation are a direct result of poor decision-making during the design and construction stages of construction, as well as, the methods and materials used in the construction process itself.  By adhering to the recommendations herein described the occurrence of mold and mildew problems can be substantially reduced and thereby provide a more allergy-free environment for the new homeowner.  Those who have read the book have found it helpful in evaluating problems with microbial contamination in existing structures.  By understanding and identifying those problems, solutions may be implemented to reduce or eliminate contaminants in existing structures.
