Bacteria, molds, pollen, and viruses are types of biological
contaminants. These contaminants may breed in stagnant
water that has accumulated in ducts, humidifiers and drain
pans, or where water has collected on ceiling tiles, carpeting,
or insulation. Sometimes insects or bird droppings can be a
source of biological contaminants. Physical symptoms related
to biological contamination include cough, chest tightness,
fever, chills, muscle aches, and allergic responses such as
mucous membrane irritation and upper respiratory congestion.
One indoor bacterium, Legionella, has caused both
Legionnaire's Disease and Pontiac Fever.
We test for Biological contaminants.
