Other factors that may affect Indoor Air Quality
The production of these materials sometimes involves the use of resins, adhesives or coatings that contain chemicals that may slowly evaporate into the air. Some of these chemicals may cause allergic reactions.
Water Damage and Excess Moisture
Water damage resulting from roof water leaks, leaking water supply pipes or condensation may cause mold (fungal) growth on porous materials.
Other factors that may influence the perception of poor indoor air quality may include improper workplace ergonomic design and poor or inadequate lighting. EH&S can also perform an ergonomic evaluation.
