Aspergillus type mold (species not specified) was recently discovered at a children's hospital in Seattle.
The mold was discovered in the ventilation system, which spread to 14 rooms. With exposure to Aspergillus, symptoms resulting from certain species of this type of mold are referred to as Aspergillosis, which is a resulting infection.
Mold issues within the HVAC ventilation system command more attention since spores can be dispersed throughout a property within a system which should be enhancing the air quality, but is rather compromising the air quality in a property. Testing for airborne mold spores in each room in this event can help determine where the spores are spreading, as well as consulting for a mold inspection and an HVAC inspection by a licensed HVAC technician.
