According to Osha.gov, “Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) has been tied to symptoms like headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs.” https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/indoorairquality/
The indoor air quality inside an office building may be affected by many things. Common problems that should be controlled are humidity levels, mold, and airborne contaminants. These contribute to what has become known as sick building syndrome.
Proper maintenance of the building HVAC and ventilation system will certainly reduce these causes. However, the cleanliness of a facility is also a factor to consider.
