Contents Notes Background and methodologic considerations -- Damp buildings -- Exposure assessment -- Toxic effects of fungi and bacteria -- Human health effects associated with damp indoor environments -- Prevention and remediation of damp indoor environments -- The public health response. "Damp Indoor Spaces and Health covers a broad range of topics. The book not only examines the relationship between damp or moldy indoor environments and adverse health outcomes, but discusses how and where buildings get wet, how dampness influences microbial growth and chemical emissions, the ways to prevent and remediate dampness, and the elements of a public health response to the issues. A comprehensive literature review finds sufficient evidence of an association between damp indoor environments and some upper respiratory tract symptoms, coughing, wheezing, and asthma symptoms in sensitized persons. This book will be of interest to a wide-ranging audience of science health, engineering and building professionals, government officials, and members of the public."--Jacket.
