Allergy & AsthmaSince 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, pet dander, tobacco smoke, and other biological and chemical pollutants, are influencing the course and severity of asthma, and/or allergic reactions.
Problems with toxic mold and indoor air quality in New York (NY), New Jersey (NJ), Connecticut (CT), Rhode Island (RI), Massachusetts (MA), Pennsylvania (PA), Delaware (DE), Maryland (MD) and New York City (NYC). We are testing remediation experts and also provide restoration services after fire and water damage for electronics, art, documents, and other precious possessions. TERS is acutely aware of the health risks associated with poor indoor air quality, mold, chemical, dust mite, and other contaminants that create or aggreviate allergy and asthma conditions.
The current situation in schools is not better, as asthma and allergy rates are increasingly higher. For instance, State officials in Massachusetts, found the prevalence of asthma averaged 9.2% within their school districts, a cause for alarm among public health advocates. Among the potential causes cited: poor indoor air quality, (IAQ), mold, water damage and fire damage, dust mites, and other enviromental pollutants as mentioned above.
