Allergy & Asthma

Studies show that poor indoor air quality, mold, dust mites, and other environmental pollutants are influencing the severity of asthma and allergic reactionsSince 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 potential health risks to you and others within your building due to poor indoor air quality, exposure to contaminants or exposure to various molds. 
The current situation in schools is not better, as student 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), moldwater damage and fire damagedust mites, and other environmental pollutants.
There is a correlation between the prevalence of human exposure to indoor air pollution and increasing rates of asthma incidences.
