Transport of fungal spores from crawl space to indoors


Reports on the measurement of airborne micro-organisms in the crawl space underneath eight buildings in southern Finland and their transfer to occupied spaces.  Three of the buildings were primary schools, two day-care centres and three dwellings.  Half of the buildings had a wooden base floor.  The dwellings had mechanical exhausts ventilation.  The day-care centres had mechanical exhaust ventilation in the crawl space, but all the other crawl spaces had natural ventilation.
