Washington, DC -- Indoor environmental screening of the home or work environment is important for individuals with allergies, chronic sinusitis, rhinitis, emphysema, asthma, atopic dermatitis, immune deficiencies, etc. Good indoor air quality is difficult to detect as you cannot see it. Bad smells alone are not the only indicator of poor air quality. Interior rooms collect not only exhaled carbon dioxide and moisture from people and objects, but also numerous toxic chemicals and biological pathogens. These can enter the body via nose, mouth, skin, mucous membranes and eyes resulting in headaches, allergies, infections or other illnesses.
The late Dr. P. Ole Fanger an expert on the health effects of indoor environments, who taught at Syracuse University, marveled at the hazards to which Americans unwittingly subjected their babies. Expectant parents typically decorated and furnished nursery rooms with paint, carpet, allergens and other materials containing volatile compounds, then locked the windows in essence taking your baby and putting them in a perfect gas chamber.
In keeping with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) 1997 recommendations, it is desirable to identify and remove common allergens and modify the home or office to reduce the level of ubiquitous (common) allergens. According to the technical report by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) there is substantial evidence that damp, moldy environments are unhealthy.
Before one can remove allergens and/or pollutants effectively, it is essential to understand if they exist, what they are and in what quantity.
