Aspergillus mold was discovered in Seattle Children’s Hospital. The hospital has been closed while it is air handling utilities are inspected. A professional hygienist has been called in to help the hospital bring the air handling unit up to speed. This is a reoccurring situation at Seattle Children’s Hospital, but hopefully this time around, the cleanup will not only clean up the air handling unit, but also the rest of the hospital so the problem does not keep cycling.

Mold Indoors


Molds are a problem indoors when mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. Molds have the potential to cause health problems. Molds produce allergens, substances that can cause allergic reactions, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances called mycotoxins. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions. Allergic responses include hayfever-like symptoms:sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash (dermatitis). Allergic reactions to mold can be immediate or delayed and they are common. In people with asthma who are allergic to mold, molds can cause asthma attacks. Mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of people who are not even allergic
