Contractors Corp.
Answer: In some cases
Explanation: The term "mold exposure" should be better defined to answer this question. When one goes outdoors, there are many molds naturally present that vary from day to day. Depending on your individual susceptibility to different genus/species of mold, different people react differently to an exposure to mold. There are "typical" exposures outdoors and can be "non-typical" exposures when there is an environment indoors where a mold reservoir has grown. Some molds are more likely to negatively impact individuals than others. Some molds have "mycotoxins" on the surface of the mold -- this can cause acute reactions in some individuals. There are no "safe" limits for mold because so many individuals react differently at different concentrations.
Texas Mold Consultants
Answer: In some cases
Explanation: At present there are no regulatory standards for fungal spore trap counts, or bioaerosols for microorganisms. In general, indoor and outdoor samples should be similar in concentration and fungal distribution. However, the presence of even low levels of Stachybotrys, Chaetomium and other mycotoxins would be of concern. Surface Concentrations for Microorganisms At present there are no regulatory guidelines for surface concentrations of microorganisms. I believe the reasoning behind this is because exposure effects everyone differently although there is a link to proximity to it, length of exposure, current health, age. Since water damage recently has also been linked to health problems, which then when not addressed lead to mold growing and spreading, do what needs to be done as quickly as possible.
