About this book

Did you know that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has in the past, defined indoor air pollution as one of the most significant environmental threats to human health? This syndrome is relatively unknown and poorly researched. The causes of how a building can be considered "sick" will be explained and discussed. The prevention and some solutions for the syndrome, known as SBS, will be discussed. The ventilation issues that promote SBS will be broached. Chemical contamination, such as outdoor and indoor contaminants will be reviewed. Biological contamination caused by bacteria, viruses, and molds will be explained extensively. I will review methods for the prevention of SBS and offer some solutions. This will benefit you and all the people who work, live, or play in the building. In the last chapter I will explain in detail about my plan for the creation of a Team to monitor your building and any complaints regarding SBS.
