Exposure to VOCs and biological contaminants in the home can lead to a spectrum of symptoms that are difficult to diagnose. Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is the term used to label the collection of symptoms that appear or intensify when someone is in a specific building or room. Symptoms of SBS include headache, eye or throat irritation, dry cough, runny nose, itchy skin, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, difficulty concentrating, and increased sensitivity to odors. Alternatively, Building Related Illness (BRI) is caused by specific airborne contaminants and allergens. Symptoms of BRI include cough, tightness in the chest, fever, chills, and muscle aches. An example of BRI is Legionnaires’ Disease, which is caused by exposure to airborne Legionella bacteria. The air quality in The Organic Home™ is maintained in a number of ways. Dorn Homes uses non-toxic building materials, including no- or low-VOC paints, adhesives, sealants, flooring and cabinets to reduce air pollution inside the home. Non-toxic, recycled insulation is blown into the walls and ceilings. Dorn Homes also properly vents bath and laundry areas and installs water management systems to protect the home from water damage. This reduces mold and mildew growth within and below the living space. t-only areas of your page to keep your website interesting to visitors.


The risk of exposure to toxic levels of VOCs and biological contaminants increases if a home is energy efficient and tightly sealed, but not adequately ventilated. All Dorn Homes are built with ‘Exclusive Building Science’: construction practices the company developed over many years to provide energy efficiency and comfort in all of their homes.   To ensure air quality and safety, The Organic Home™ features a ventilation system that replaces stagnant air throughout the home with filtered, temperature-controlled outdoor air, day and night. As part of the ventilation system, ultra-efficient air filters are installed to pull dust, mold spores, pollen and pet dander out of the home environment. Maintaining a healthy environment at home is as important to our well being as eating well, engaging in daily physical activity, and getting outside more often! To learn more about The Organic Home™
