What is Sick Building Syndrome (S.B.S)

The term “sick building syndrome” is used to describe situations in which the occupants of the building experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in the building.

Complaints can be localized to one particular room or office, or may be widespread throughout the building. Causes of sick building syndrome can be related back to biological contaminants such as bacteria, moulds, pollen and viruses.

There are several ways these contaminants can enter the building

  • Through fresh intakes on the air conditioning system.
  • Through open doors and windows.
  • Transmitted from building occupants or visitors.
  • Growth of mould and bacteria within an air conditioning system.
