    The truth about indoor air quality is that most people don't know anything about the air they breathe in their homes. In the past decade an increasing number of studies are pointing to the same conclusion - that particulate matter is a serious health threat which can kill you in a variety of ways. The Quality of Air discusses the topic from both the environmental and human health points-of-view. As today's policymakers, academic, government, industrial researchers, and the general public are all concerned about air pollution in both indoor and outdoor scenarios, this book presents the advances in the analytical tools available for air quality control within social, political, and legal.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) investigations provide evaluations of air quality in both public and commercial buildings. Indoor air quality is defined by the depiction of concentrations of pollutants and thermal conditions that may negatively affect the health, comfort, and performance of a building’s occupants.

The air quality of the indoor environment has been characterized in a limited number of pilot studies. Because of the large variety of distinct indoor environments—single and multifamily residences, offices, hospitals, restaurants, schools, recreational facilities, transportation facilities, etc.—there is a major difficulty in characterizing “the indoor air environment.”.
