4002: Toxic Mold, Health Effects and Home Assessment
Indoor mold represents an important allergen and toxic exposure in the home, school and workplace. With climate change, major flooding events are increasing; as a result, they are affecting more and more buildings and impacting allergic disease in the people in those built environments. Aging buildings and changes in building design also create moldy environments. Assessing the environmental and clinical outcomes of mold in the home is warranted for the allergist.
