                     Dampness and Inadequate Ventilation are Two Causes of Microbial Pollution
From the World Health Organization in its report WHO Guidelines for Indoor Air Quality: Dampness and Mould, published July 16, 2009

The presence of many biological agents in indoor environ0ments is attributable to dampness and inadequate ventilation. Excess moisture on almost all indoor materials leads to growth of microbes, such as mould, fungi and bacteria, which subsequently emit spores, cells, fragments and volatile organic compounds into indoor air. Moreover, dampness initiates chemical or biological degradation of  materials, which also pollute indoor air. Dampness has therefore been suggested to be strong, consistent indicator of risk of asthma and respiratory symptoms (e.g. cough and wheeze). The health risks of biological contaminants of indoor air could thus be addressed by considering dampness as the risk indicator. Several widely acknowledged global trends contribute to the conditions associated with increased exposure to dampness and mould:

energy conservation measures that are not properly implemented (tightened building envelopes, ventilation deficits, improper insulation);
urbanization (migration, building type and density, urban degradation, housing availability and social inequity);
climate change (increasing frequency of extreme weather conditions, shifting of climate zones); and
the quality and globalization of building materials and components, construction concepts and techniques.

These conditions increase the risks of adverse health effects due to biological
contaminants of indoor air.

Airborne Mold Spores (colony-forming units)

The airborne concentrations of viable fungi in indoor environments are usually in the order of a few to several thousand colony-forming units (CFUs) per cubic metre of air. In a given space, concentrations of fungi are highly variable and depend on such factors as: climate and season, type of fungus, construction, age and use of the building, and ventilation rate. They also depend largely on the sampling and analytical methods used, making valid comparisons between studies difficult. ------from the World Health Organization in its report WHO Guidelines for Indoor Air Quality: Dampness and Mould, published July 16, 2009
