"Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and by not carrying indoor air pollutants out of the home."
"Contaminated central air handling systems can become breeding grounds for mold, mildew, and other sources of biological contaminants [bacteria, viruses...] and can then distribute these contaminants through the home."
"Increasing ventilation rates and air distribution often can be a cost effective means of reducing indoor pollutant levels."
" Molds are found... where humidity levels are high, such as basements or showers. ...exposure to molds can lead to symptoms such as stuffy nose, wheezing, and red or itchy eyes, or skin."
"Mold growth, which often looks like spots, can be many different colors, and can smell musty. If you can see or smell mold, a health risk may be present."
"mold growth can be slowed by controlling humidity levels."
"Be sure the home has adequate ventilation."
"Biological pollutants, including molds, bacteria, viruses, pollen, dust mites, and animal dander promote poor indoor air quality... leading to breathing problems."
"Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma... In addition, it can cause headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue."
"Proper ventilation keeps the air fresh and healthy indoors. That's why ventilation is crucial to healthy indoor air."
