Report of Interest on Home Dampness & Mold from Mark Mendell

An automated Google Scholar search for “Indoor Microbiology” alerted me to this report from Mark Mendell: A Research Agenda on Assessing and Remediating Home Dampness and Mold to Reduce Dampness-Related Health Effects by Mark J. Mandell. This definitely seems of interest to the microbiology of the built environment crowd and anyone interested in moisture effects …

Microbial VOCs and Health – report from Basel conference Indoor Microbiome Symposium

Many indoor environmental investigators have attempted to use volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted by microbes as an indicator of the presence or potential health relevance of the indoor microbiome. These compounds emitted by microbes are generally referred to as MVOCs. The airborne concentrations of MVOCs is usually too low for characterization by the usual indoor …
