For 35 years Mr. Hoffman operated several construction companies focusing on custom homebuilding and the elaborate renovation of older homes. Having focused on indoor air quality problems for the past 12 years, Mr. Hoffman has said, “For 35 years I created indoor air quality problems so now I’ll spend the rest of my life solving them.”
Seven years ago Mr. Hoffman wrote Mold-Free Construction to help homeowners evaluate and oversee the building process of their home to insure that the construction would result in a cleaner home. Much of the material in the book can be applied to existing homes as well, so the book has relevance to anyone in any living environment. He developed the Mold-Free Process that combines utilization of green technologies, proper building techniques, following manufacturer’s specifications and energy-saving processes to formulate the NORMI Healthier Home Certification for builders.
