Indoor Air Quality
There are many potential Indoor Air Quality pollution sources in the home, which can create or exacerbate existing health issues, including asthma and allergies. Sensitive populations such as children, the elderly and those with immune disorders are more susceptible to the effects of poor indoor air quality. For their size, children breathe up to twice as much air as adults, and are therefore at higher risk for health problems. Sources of Indoor Air Pollution include, (but are not limited to):
Mold & Moisture - *Note: The Florida Department of Health does not provide mold testing or conduct mold assessment and investigation of homes.
If you suspect your home has poor indoor air quality and you are exhibiting various health symptoms, seek a licensed health care provider.
If your health care provider concludes that your symptoms are associated with your indoor air quality or to report a reportable disease, they must contact the Division of Epidemiology and Disease Control of the Florida Department of Health-Palm Beach County at (561) 671-4184.
