Textile wall materials and sick building syndrome.
We studied the relation between the amount of textile and other soft fiber wall materials used in the office and the symptoms related to sick building syndrome in two identical, mechanically ventilated, eight-story office buildings.
The study population consisted of 400 workers (85% of the source population) : 264 males (66%) and 136 females (34%). A self-administered questionnaire inquired about the occurrence of symptoms and related personal and environmental determinants.
The office environment was assessed concurrently.
Exposure was defined as the surface area of textile or other soft wall material (SWM) in the office.
