Indoor Air Quality: The Latest Sampling and Analytical Methods, Third Edition is a practical, user-friendly guide to the identification and assessment of the indoor air contaminants that contribute to building-related illness in commercial buildings, institutions, and residences. It covers the basic concepts of indoor air quality assessment, including its historic evolution. The book describes the most common substances encountered in an indoor air quality investigation, their health effects, and their occurrence in the environment. Drawing from the author’s experience, observations, and extensive research, this easy-to-read guide provides readers with a working knowledge of the latest approaches to sampling protocols and cutting-edge trends as well as suggested sampling strategies, helpful experience related tips, and a means for interpreting results. Additionally, in the later part of the book, there is considerable discussion of failure modes of building materials and systems—sources of many indoor air quality problems!

This third edition details up-to-date strategies and analytical methods and addresses some of the more recent, as well as less common, concerns on indoor air pollutants. All chapters in the third edition have been updated to adhere to the more recent developments in indoor air quality. Also a new chapter on the illusive data and sampling approaches on ozone has been added.
