Biological Contaminates

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.
