Evaluating and controlling Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can reduce health effects for the most at risk people with heart or lung disease such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or congestive heart failure.
Bioaerosols are particulate matter that is suspended in the air and when breathed in can aggravate these diseases and can also affect infants and children whose lungs are still developing and because they have an increased level of activity and play.
Most household bioaerosols sources are human occupants, pets, house dust, organic waste, as well as heating and HVAC systems. Non-residential building bioaerosols sources often are specific to their particular environment.
Do You Have Trouble Breathing?
How Dangerous is Mold? People react to mold differently. Those that are sensitive to molds may experience nasal congestion, throat irritation, coughing, wheezing, eye irritation and skin irritation when exposed to mold. People with mold allergies can have more severe reactions and those with Immune deficiencies or chronic lung illnesses, may get serious life-threatening respiratory infections.
People exposed to dangerous levels of mold have the potential to develop health issues and symptoms such as allergic reactions, asthma and other moderate to severe respiratory conditions. While there is no practical way to free an indoor environment of all molds and mold spores, the best way to control indoor mold growth is to properly control the moisture levels.
