Allergy & Asthma

Studies show that poor indoor air quality, mold, dust mites, and other environmental pollutants are influencing the severity of asthma and allergic reactions Since about 1980, asthma prevalence and asthma-related hospitalizations and deaths have increased alarmingly. Recent studies have suggested that indoor exposure to dust mites, cockroaches, mold due to water damage and other causes, soot and smoke, pet dander, tobacco smoke, and other biological and chemical pollutants, are influencing the course and severity of asthma, and/or allergic reactions. We are concerned about the health risks to you and others within your building or indoor environment due to poor indoor air quality, exposure to contaminants, or exposure to various molds. There is a correlation between the pervasiveness of indoor air pollution and human exposure to indoor pollutants and contaminated air with increasing rates of asthma incidences. Below you will find more information about asthma as it relates to poor indoor air quality.
The current situation in schools is not better, as asthma and allergy rates climb increasingly higher. For instance, State officials in Massachusetts found the prevalence of asthma within their school districts averaged 9.2%, which was a cause for alarm among public health advocates. Among the potential causes cited were: poor indoor air quality, (IAQ), mold, water damage and fire damage, dust mites, and other enviromental pollutants as mentioned above.
