INDOOR AIR QUALITY Fungi, especially filamentous fungi called mold, also lower air quality and cause public health problems though not typically as agents of infectious disease. Recently an IOM report stated that “there is sufficient evidence of an association between the presence of mold and bacteria in damp indoor environments and File Size: 1MB.

The characteristics of “healthy” indoor environments cannot yet be defined, nor do microbial, clinical, and building researchers yet understand how to modify features of indoor environments—such as building ventilation systems and the chemistry of building materials—in ways that would have predictable impacts on microbial communities to.

Bacterial pathogens are capable of causing severe diseases in humans if inhaled, ingested or if they come into contact with the skin. A recent meta-analysis concluded that “outdoor air and unidentified sources dominated the sources for indoor air environments,” accounting for an average of 52 and 43 %, respectively, of observed bacteria.

The goal of this work is to identify major categories of sources of airborne microorganisms in the built environment, illustrated in Cited by: Microorganisms are ubiquitously present in our indoor and outdoor environment.

As such, humans are constantly exposed to a wide range of species, including those that are a part of our natural flora, as well as opportunistic and pathogenic, which may potentiate the development of adverse health effects. There were no significant differences in concentration between different indoor environments.

VLP and BLP concentrations in outdoor air were and times higher, respectively, than in indoor air. Enteric bacteria are brought into the home kitchen on raw meat and vegetables, where they can grow to large numbers in moist environments where food is available.

This includes kitchen fomites and even cleaning tools—enteric bacteria can be spread around a home during normal cleaning of surfaces. Download: Download full-size image; Figure 30 Author: Charles P. Gerba, Ian L. Pepper. in indoor areas are sparse and mostly not scientifically sound.

In non-industrial indoor environments, the most important source of airborne bacteria is the presence of human (Stetzenbach, ). Specific activities like talking, sneezing, coughing, walking, washing and toilet flushing can generate airborne biological particulate matter.

The following are some of the mold references from which detailed information on fungi can be obtained. Microorganisms in home and indoor work environments: Diversity, Health Impacts, Investigation and control.

Carpets are usually reservoirs of any particulates including dust and microorganisms that settles from the air or brought in.

They are born in hospitals, raised in homes or apartments, work in office buildings or factories and move to nursing homes in their old age.

In indoor environments, Penicillium is extremely common on damp building materials, walls and wallpaper, floor, carpet mattress and upholstered furniture dust.

The spores of this mould are produced in dry chains and are exposed to the air hence their ease to become airborne. While it is true that you will not find a surface without bacteria on it, the majority of bacteria that you’ll find are common, non-dangerous species.

Studies have shown that of the bacteria found in indoor air, the most common four are: Micrococcus, Staphylococcus, Bacillus, and Pseudomonas. Micrococcus is a sphere-shaped (coccus/cocci. / Archives for Indoor Air Quality / Microbial Sampling. Mould Exposure. Jackson Kung'u. The best strategy to determine if building occupants are exposed to hazardous mould is to take air samples.

It is important to note that even in rooms with visible mould growth air sampling may give very low spore counts. We also work closely with some.
