Webinar | EPA Indoor Air Quality Science: Indoor Chemistry
November 18, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
We spend 90% of our time indoors where we are exposed to a complex mixture of chemicals and diverse microbial communities. Both indoor chemistry and microbes are influenced by excess moisture in homes, and this dampness is associated with negative human health effects. The goal of this webinar is to elucidate how elevated relative humidity in housing can influence both indoor chemistry and microbiology. This work focuses on carpet and dust, which are important reservoirs for human exposure.
