Contaminated indoor air leaves building owners, building managers, architects, builders and developers vulnerable to liability. Because of poor air quality, lawsuits have been filed, buildings have been closed and occupants have reported numerous health problems resulting in an increase in absenteeism and a reduction in employee performance. Since prospective tenants are apt to be aware of environmental issues and liabilities, the stigma of poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can have a significant impact on a building's marketability.
