When we think of indoor pollution, we usually think of conditions originating from faulty ventilation systems, second hand smoke, and other air borne pollutants. Taking an in-depth, hard science look at the problems of indoor environmental pollution, Indoor Environmental Quality covers all the major indoor contaminants - inorganic, organic, and biological.

Renowned author Thad Godish expands the scope of "indoor air quality" issues to include the entire indoor environment, both in the workplace and the home. He covers:
hand-to-mouth transfer of lead, pesticides and asbestos
dermal exposures from pesticide-contaminated dust
contact with office materials such as carbon paper and other printed papers
Naturally occurring and man-made contaminants such as radon and asbestos

Godish discusses specific techniques including ventilation and air cleaning that can aid you in the clean-up of indoor air problems. He presents the major issues and concepts, and provides supporting facts in a highly readable style.
An excellent, comprehensive, clear introduction to the issues associated with the quality of the indoor environment, Indoor Environmental Quality gives you the how-tos for controlling contaminants at the source. Its readability makes it ideal for anyone who needs information about specific indoor air problems, and how to diagnose and mitigate them.
