Photo of Angelique and her dog with the caption, "Hear Angelique talk about safe remodeling on Living Natural Today!"On October 1, 2014, I was the guest on Teresa Jungling’s Living Natural Today radio show. She interviewed me about ways that people with chemical sensitivity can safely and successfully remodel their homes.


You can listen to the show right here on the Green Dreamhome website, using the player below.

My segment starts about twenty minutes in, but you may also enjoy the first guest, Stan Salot, President of the Hazardous Substance Free Alliance. He talks about minimizing toxins in your home.

Teresa has interesting guests every Wednesday, so check out the Living Natural Today radio show! ← (At-work alert: clicking this link causes the current show to auto-play.)

If you have any questions for me about the precautions and procedures I use when having my home repaired or remodeled, please ask them below!

This is how I made my final decision to use Tec Accucolor polymer-enhanced unsanded grout. Tec was my front-runner because it contains no biocides, but the company won’t reveal which polymers they use to enhance its cementitious grout. Therefore, a test for canary-safety was necessary.
