Effects of indoor mould growth on the respiratory system
MetadataShow full item record
Objectives: Many different studies have noted an association between exposure to mould and adverse health effects. This study focuses on the respiratory health effects associated with mould growth within residential dwellings, identifying the most prevalent strains and analysing the relationship between mould exposure and children. Literature Sources: Eligible peer-reviewed studies and some grey literature was reviewed on mould exposure and respiratory health effects within residential dwellings. Conclusion: There is a definite association between exposure to indoor dampness and mould and respiratory health conditions. Remediating measures have been shown to improve respiratory health.
