The paper discusses the importance of indoor air quality in the acceptability of a building. The health and productivity of building occupants can be affected by the presence of certain organic chemical vapors, particles, and biological contaminants in the indoor air. Many of the materials used in buildings, either as structural materials or furnishings, or contents such as work supplies and maintenance materials, can be sources of indoor air contaminants. Concepts on material evaluation and selection are presented.
