Indoor Air Quality Monitoring (IAQ)
Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) has been understood for a long time as a building condition that results in people experiencing headaches, dry cough, dizziness, difficulty in concentrating, and other symptoms when being in a building with poor indoor air quality (IAQ).
Buildings and facilities are home to many sources of air contamination, including volatile organic compounds (from cleaning agents, furniture, and other materials), CO2, Particulate matter etc. Poor ventilation exacerbates the presence of these contaminants. These result in Sick Building Syndrome (SBS).
Not only does poor IAQ harm health and well-being, it also negatively impacts productivity of the occupants.
