National Mold And Allergy Report


Apartment Listing  

Molds are microscopic particles that thrive on moist conditions. They replicate by producing millions of spores. When humans inhale these minute particles, a series of allergic reactions occur in the body leading to numerous health and respiratory problems. This problem is widespread in America where one out of six Americans suffers from some kind of allergic infections at least once in his/her lifetime.

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) produces a report on the pollen and mold count in the country on a regular basis. Pollens can equally cause serious respiratory problem in humans. Male flowers produce minute pollens. They either travel in air or are carried by insects and placed on the female flowers for pollination, leading to the productions of fruits or seeds. Pollens that are air/wind borne are responsible for causing allergic reactions in humans. They affect the respiratory system directly.

A combination of pollen and mold count measures the number of pollens and molds present in that particular area. For measuring this, pollen and mold spores (both air borne) are collected in an air-filtering device, which is naturally sticky. These microscopic particles stick to the surface and are eventually trapped. They are then examined under a microscope and the number and type of pollens and molds is separately identified. Depending on the number, the area is classified as low, medium, high or very highly infested with these irritants.

However, this count is not specific or accurate. This test only gives an overall picture about the pollen and mold infestation in the particular area.

New-Technology-For-Mold-Inspection      Molds grow luxuriantly in moist conditions. These microscopic particles reproduce by a process called “spore formation”. Inhaling these spores can pose several health problems to humans. It is advisable to get a mold test performed if you are living in a humid or moist area. More..
