Friday's Comments

The trend of very high mold count and high pollen count continues. The top molds noted include 80% cladosprium followed by smuts and mildew. The top pollen include Mulberry tree pollen followed by Elm, Hickory, grass and maple/box elder. Have an allergy-free long weekend!

Results are expressed as the median value of the particles per cubic meter and represent an integrated 24 hour collection.

Laser particle counts are the number of particles per cubic meter divided into 6 different size ranges. A laser beam literally counts the number of such particles as they are sucked past a detector. There is evidence that increased numbers of particles, particularly in the smaller ranges, are associated with heart diseases. That is why we measure it.
