Taking inhaled steroid for asthma. Due to chlamydia pneumoniae infection?

I am a physicist working at Univ. of WI-Whitewater. My building Upham Hall was renovated in 2005-2007, and my department was moved back into the building before renovation of our wing was completed. Several of us contracted asthma within six months of moving in, and a few of us continue to express symptoms requiring treatment with an inhaled steroid. What is the likelihood we all contracted a Chlamydia Pneumoniae infection and those of us who are still expressing symptoms of asthma need to be treated with an appropriate antibiotic?

ANTIBIOTICS ARE NOT THE TREATMENT OF ASTHMA
IF YOU LINGER ON WITHBOUT RX THERE CAN BE CHANCES OF CLAMYDIA
I THINK SOME MOLD MAY BE THERE IN BUILDING WHICH ARE CAUSING PROBLEMS
AS MOST OF PEOPLE ARE AFFECTED
GET THE BUILDING TREATED FOR MOULDS SO THIS CAN HELP
INHALERS ARE ALSO NOT TREAT MENT
YOU CAN CONSULT ALLERGY SPECIALIST DOCTOR TO GET DIAGNOSIS OF ALLERGY TILL THEN CONTROL WITH INHALERS
