Mold Study on Katrina

As a response to popular demand, we are presenting some more Mold Science.

This mold study examines the potential risks of mold exposures based on Katrina research. The study measured airborne molds and markers of molds and bacteria in New Orleans area homes. In October 2005, air samples were collected from 5 mildly water-damaged houses, 15 moderately to heavily water-damaged houses, and 11 outdoor locations. Fungi, spores, and endotoxins (Aspergillus niger, Penicillium spp., Trichoderma, and Paecilomyces)were examined. Unhealthy concentrations of mold were found.

The full article examines and compares mold concentrations in mildly and severely damaged homes.
