Indoor air pollution


sick building syndrome


SBS symptoms can affect your skin, respiratory, and neurological systems. You may mistakenly self-diagnose yourself with a cold or flu.


Among the possible symptoms are:

  • throat irritation

  • breathing difficulties

  • tightness in the chest

  • runny nose

  • allergy-like symptoms, such as sneezing

  • burning sensations in the nose

  • dry, itchy skin rashes

  • headaches

  • dizziness

  • difficulty concentrating

  • forgetfulness

  • fatigue

  • irritability

  • nausea

  • body aches

  • fever

  • chills

If you have allergies or a current respiratory illness, you may notice an increased severity in your symptoms. For example, people with asthma might be at a higher risk for asthma attacks due to SBS.

It’s also important to note that SBS affects everyone differently. While everyone who spends time in a particular space might go through some of the above symptoms, these can vary. Some people may not experience any symptoms at all. Others may experience symptoms after leaving the building in question — this may be due to repeated or long-term exposure.

Indoor air pollution


Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.

Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later.
