Michael Rubino is an air quality expert and wellness advocate helping to bridge the gap between our homes and their direct impact on our health. He's also the founder of Home Cleanse, a company dedicated to addressing the worldwide health epidemic caused by poor indoor air quality and he’s today’s guest on the podcast.

Through his nonprofit, Change the Air Foundation, and collaboration with over a hundred doctors globally, Michael strives to not only raise awareness but also provide solutions to correctly identify and remove the pollutants causing the worldwide health crisis.

I have to say, I have not been this excited about a podcast episode in a really long time. Selfishly, it's because we're moving into our new home and I find that clean-home advice is really hard to come by.

Micheal is a leading expert in this field and leaves us with a notebook chock full with actionable advice on identifying mold issues in the home, dealing with micro-toxic loads, clean-home renovation, air filtration, and so, so much more. Enjoy!
