Bedroom carpets and mattresses devoid of any reported or observed moisture damage or problems were analysed as sources of indoor fungal growth by determining the amount of CO2 released from respiration by microorganisms living in furnishings. Dust was extracted from the carpets and mattresses using a Kirby G5 vacuum cleaner. The basal respiration rate of the dust samples without moisture added was used to estimate base respiration rate and a substrate-induced respiration rate method was used to… CONTINUE READING
