    Taylor & Francis Ltd Indoor Environmental Quality 2000 Edition by Thad Godish

    When we think of indoor pollution, we usually think of conditions originating from faulty ventilation systems, second hand smoke, and other air borne pollutants. Taking an in-depth, hard science look at the problems of indoor environmental pollution, Indoor Environmental Quality covers all the major indoor contaminants - inorganic, organic, and biological. Renowned author Thad Godish expands the scope of "indoor air quality" issues to include the entire indoor environment, both in the workplace and the home. He covers: hand-to-mouth transfer of lead, pesticides and asbestosdermal exposures from pesticide-contaminated dustcontact with office materials such as carbon paper and other printed papersNaturally occurring and man-made contaminants such as radon and asbestosGodish discusses specific techniques including ventilation and air cleaning that can aid you in the clean-up of indoor air problems. He presents the major issues and concepts, and provides supporting facts in a highly readable style. An excellent, comprehensive, clear introduction to the issues associated with the quality of the indoor environment, Indoor Environmental Quality gives you the how-tos for controlling contaminants at the source. Its readability makes it ideal for anyone who needs information about specific indoor air problems, and how to diagnose and mitigate them.
