You might find the following books helpful as a start to finding your way 
around indoor air microorganisms in relation to health:

Singh, J. (Ed.) 1994.  Building Mycology: Management of Decay and Health 
in Buildings. London, E & FN Spon.

Rylander, R. and Jacobs, R.R. (Eds.). 1994.  Organic Dusts: Exposure, 
Effects and Prevention.  Boca Raton, FL, Lewis Publishers.

I can provide other references to airborne microorganisms and occupational
health if required.
