mushroom dust manure

Asked August 6, 2018, 5:14 PM EDT

Is it safe to be breathing mushroom dust?? We live right next door to a nursery and I can hardly stand to sit outside because of the pungent order of mushroom dust! At first I thought we cracked a sewer tile but it is for sure mushroom dust manure! I have only one lung and would like to keep breathing safely.
