GREEN NEWS! SYMPTOMS OF POOR AIR QUALITY
There are many symptoms of poor indoor air quality,
from temporary, minor irritations to serious, life-threatening illnesses.
They are generally grouped into three classifications:
sick building syndrome, building-related illnesses, and multiple
chemical sensitivities. Problems with asbestos, lead, and radon
are serious, long-term problems and are not grouped within these
categories. Today I would like to talk about
Sick Building Syndrome.
Sick Building Syndrome. (SBS) - is a condition in which
occupants experience several health related problems that can not
be linked to any particular cause. Generally the symptoms disappear
after the occupants leave the building. (irritation of eyes, nose,
and throat; dry nose and skin; redness of skin; mental fatigue and
headache; respiratory infection and cough; hoarseness of voice and
wheezing; hypersensitivity reactions and even nausea or dizziness.)
I personally encountered some of these symptoms entering Sears stores
around San Diego, which probably inspired me to write a little article
about their interior
design. If you experience any of the above symptoms you need
more on this subject and I would recommend testing the air in
your work space.
