Are You Ill Because of Mold or Contamination in Your Building?
Perhaps no health scare in history woke Americans up to the dangers of building contamination like the outbreak of Legionnaires' disease at a convention in Philadelphia in 1976. Since then, countless thousands have contracted legion fever and related respiratory diseases from molds and bacteria that are often symptomatic of unclean or unventilated buildings.
It is a mistake, though, to think that people can suffer building contamination illnesses only from living or working in old buildings. In today's world of glass walls and air conditioning, there is often insufficient fresh ventilation to circulate and push out contaminants. Often referred to as sick building syndrome, building contamination is a leading cause of long-term respiratory illness among office workers and employees working in an unventilated environment.
