Reasons behind Sick Home Syndrome in NYC

Sick Home Syndrome

The main factors that contribute to sick building syndrome are biological and chemical contaminants that are present both within and outside the building, including the presence of mold. According to the EPA, another crucial factor is insufficient ventilation because of tightly-sealed up-to-date construction exertions to make your buildings more energy-efficient.

Additional causes include biological contaminants like molds, bacteria, and pollen, found in stagnant water that has gathered in humidifiers, ducts, drain pans, basements, crawl spaces, and other areas where moisture can collect and damage ceiling tiles, carpets, insulation, and more. Certain types of mold contain mycotoxins and are frequently referred to as "black mold" or “toxic mold.” They are far more lethal than other types of mold, causing discomfort among humans.
