AQS reports outdoor air affected by indoor air after Hurricane Katrina

Yikes!!!  This a little scary, but not surprising.  A recent News Update by AQS reports that they will present a paper at the annual meeting for the AAAAI,  2010 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology’s (AAAAI) annual meeting   The presentation involves a two year study of indoor and outdoor allergens after Hurricane Katrina.  The findings demonstrate that outdoor mold counts were elevated for nine months after Katrina.  The types of mold were related to composting and water damaged building materials.  This study underscores the importance of creating clean and safe indoor air to provide relief from outdoor contaminants.  This study raises concerns regarding residential and commercial building demolitions after fires and water damage.
