Exposure Risks Associated with Penicillium Discussed in New Online Video
The IAQ Video Network produces another educational video about health threats due to exposure to environmental contaminants and pathogens.
Penicillium is a ubiquitous soil fungus that prefers cool and moderate climates. It is also commonly found in homes and buildings that have suffered water damage and subsequent mold growth. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “The most common indoor molds are Cladosporium, Penicillium, Aspergillus, and Alternaria.”
“Penicillium is commonly present wherever organic material and moisture are available,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “Many species of Penicillium can thrive in low humidity environments. This allows them to grow in numerous indoor environments where other types of fungi may not proliferate. We hope this video helps to educate people about ways to protect their family’s health from this indoor air quality contaminant.”
