Allergens originating from mites, insects, animal dander and fungal spores are found in building surface reservoirs such as floors, upholstery and beds. Epidemiological evidence indicates that these allergens are strongly associated with the development of bronchial hyperreactivity (BHR), or asthma. Although life threatening in rare occasions, asthma affects nearly 50% of the population in developed societies, resulting in much distress and lost time from school and work. These diseases are… CONTINUE READING
