The concentration of fungal spores is higher in the crawl space than inside houses. Domestic mechanical exhaust ventilation systems may create air flow between crawl space and base floor through leaks. This study used data from eight buildings to develop a model providing relation between indoor and crawl space fungal spores concentrations. Results show that the correlation between the fungal spores in the crawl spaces and indoors depends on the size range of microbe species.
