Penicillium, Aspergillus, and Cladosporium, all fungal species, have been found to cause notable health risks to adults and children with Asthma. In the united states, approximately 8% of all adults have asthma and 9.3% of children according to the CDC.
The results are consistent from tests performed. Dampness feeds fungal contamination and increases the severity of asthma symptoms. Aspergillus and Penicillium, forms of fungi, specifically have been linked to increased asthma development in children. In Panama City and Destin (all of the Gulf Coast really), homes tend to have high humidity which makes mold in our area a problem and constant battle.
If you or a family member has Asthma, getting a home mold test is worth every penny. Contact Green Air Technology today for a free consultation.
