Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is a physical condition that seems to be the result of poor indoor air quality. Causes include presence of mold and microbials, bad ventilation, as well as chemical and biological contamination. Exposure to these contaminants could result in symptoms such as sensory irritation of the eyes, nose, or throat, skin irritation, hypersensitivity, as well as odor and taste sensations.

A study conducted by the World Health Organization revealed that up to 30% of new and remodeled buildings could be linked to Sick Building Syndrome.
