This episode of the BS* + Beer Show centers around environmental sensitivities, arguably an under-discussed topic in the building industry. Corinne Segura, a Certified Building Biology Practitioner, and founder of My Chemical-Free House, identifies potentially problematic materials and shares alternative product recommendations to ensure home interiors are safe and healthy. Conversation points include two-part spray foam, pine flooring, lead-riddled tile, UV-cured adhesives, the value of air testing (beyond home IAQ monitors), and much more. Enjoy the show!


Corinne Segura holds certificates in Building Biology, and Healthier Materials / Sustainable Buildings, and has worked as a Healthy Building Materials Specifier for eight years on new builds and renovations. She also designs courses for the Building Biology Institute.
