Molds, excessive moisture and other biological organisms can cause many undesirable
health effects. To protect yourself and your family, read on.
Q: What are some of the biological problems I should be concerned about?
A: Molds, mildew, fungi, bacteria and dust mites are some of the main biological pollutants inside the house. Some, such as pollen, are generated
outside the home. Mold and mildew are generated in the home and release spores into the air. Mold, mildew, fungi and bacteria are often found in
areas of the home that have high humidity levels, such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms or basements. Dust mites and animal dander are
problematic when they become airborne during vacuuming, making beds or when textiles are disturbed.
Q: What are some of the health effects?
A: Allergic reactions are the most common health problems associated with biological pollutants. Symptoms often include watery eyes, runny nose
and sneezing, nasal congestion, itching, coughing, wheezing and difficulty breathing, headache, dizziness and fatigue. Dust mites have been identified
as the single most important trigger for asthma attacks.
Q: How are biological contaminants transported through the house?
A: Molds and dust mites thrive in areas of high humidity. Mold grows on organic materials such as paper, textiles, grease, dirt and soap scum. Mold
spores float throughout the house, forming new colonies where they land. Dust mites thrive on dead human skin cells and in textiles such as
bedding, carpeting and upholstery. When these textiles are disturbed during vacuuming, making beds or walking on carpet, the dust particles become
airborne. Pollen, plant material that enters through windows or on pets, and animal dander also become airborne when disturbed. Infectious diseases
caused by bacteria and viruses are generally passed from person to person through physical contact, but some circulate through indoor ventilation
Q: If I'm concerned about the biological contaminants in my home, what can I do to deal with the problem?
A: There are no practical tests for biological contaminants for use by non-professionals. However there are signs to watch for. You can sometimes
see and smell mold colonies growing on surfaces. Mold growth should be suspected wherever there are water stains, standing water or moist
Prevent mold growth by keeping basements, bathrooms and other rooms clean and dry. Use a disinfectant to clean surfaces that have mold
on them. If carpeting or furnishings become wet, they must be quickly and thoroughly dried or discarded.
Humidifiers, dehumidifiers and air conditioning condensing units should be regularly cleaned with a disinfectant such as chlorine bleach.
Keep humidity at acceptable levels (less than 50 percent) and make sure there's plenty of ventilation, especially in areas where moisture
tends to build up.
People who are sensitive to dust mites may need to replace carpeting in their homes with hard surfaced flooring and use area rugs that can
be removed and cleaned.
Vacuums with high efficiency filters or central vacuum systems can help reduce the airborne dust generated by vacuuming.
