The field of indoor air quality concerns architects, engineers, industrial hygienists and building operators. Bringing together all these disciplines, this expert guide offers vital information and practical guidance to assess and control indoor contaminants in all types of buildings. Featuring the latest investigative procedures, measurement and monitoring techniques and assessment protocols, this book demonstrates how to: conduct thorough occupant interviews, collect and analyze samples, diagnose and solve problems related to air movement and HVAC-systems, minimize pollution from VOC-emitting building materials and equipment, control contamination introduced by maintenance and construction activities and implement a building commissioning plan to minimize problems in new construction. Indoor Air Quality provides tested and proven solutions and strategies you need to design, operate and maintain buildings with good air quality.
