Table 3 Impact of moisture damage interventions on weighted and unweighted bacterial and fungal beta-diversity (analyzed with ANOSIM). Results are shown for all interventions together (39 pre 41 post samples; note: two house dust samples collected in one home served as pre samples for both, renovation and moving, as part of the family moved, while the other part renovated the existing home) and for moisture damage renovations (20 sample pairs) and cases where families moved (21 sample pairs) separately
