    Microorganisms are ubiquitously present in our indoor and outdoor environment. As such, humans are constantly exposed to a wide range of species, including those that are a part of our natural flora, as well as opportunistic and pathogenic, which may potentiate the development of adverse health effects. There were no significant differences in concentration between different indoor environments. VLP and BLP concentrations in outdoor air were and times higher, respectively, than in indoor air.

    Enteric bacteria are brought into the home kitchen on raw meat and vegetables, where they can grow to large numbers in moist environments where food is available. This includes kitchen fomites and even cleaning tools—enteric bacteria can be spread around a home during normal cleaning of surfaces. Download: Download full-size image; Figure 30 Author: Charles P. Gerba, Ian L. Pepper. in indoor areas are sparse and mostly not scientifically sound. In non-industrial indoor environments, the most important source of airborne bacteria is the presence of human (Stetzenbach, ). Specific activities like talking, sneezing, coughing, walking, washing and toilet flushing can generate airborne biological particulate matter.

Carpets are usually reservoirs of any particulates including dust and microorganisms that settles from the air or brought in.   They are born in hospitals, raised in homes or apartments, work in office buildings or factories and move to nursing homes in their old age. This trend towards indoor living is also occurring in developing nations. Thirty years ago, the Chinese city of Shenzhen was a Cited by:

INDOOR AIR QUALITY Fungi, especially filamentous fungi called mold, also lower air quality and cause public health problems though not typically as agents of infectious disease.

Recently an IOM report stated that “there is sufficient evidence of an association between the presence of mold and bacteria in damp indoor environments and File Size: 1MB.The characteristics of “healthy” indoor environments cannot yet be defined, nor do microbial, clinical, and building researchers yet understand how to modify features of indoor environments—such as building ventilation systems and the chemistry of building materials—in ways that would have predictable impacts on microbial communities to.
