Building Air Quality: A Guide for Building Owners and Facility Managers
Published March 04, 2004
This extensive, 228-page document equips building managers to prevent, identify, and correct problems with indoor air. Written in 1991, this guide lacks recent IAQ discoveries and approaches, but it offers a solid introduction to IAQ problems and prevention plans.
The guide outlines a procedure for evaluating buildings. For existing problems, it suggests potential solutions and where to turn for professional assistance with serious IAQ problems, such as those caused by chemical leaks. The appendices on moisture and mildew, radon, and asbestos provide an informative introduction to some of the most dangerous causes of poor indoor-air quality.
