What Is Sick Building Syndrome?

"If a property has a 'sore', being water leaks and dampness that has not been repaired, the mould and spores will come back. This is food for mould and is a vital step that all leaks and water damage relating to the sore be correctly repaired. This is also know as Sick Building Syndrome."

Definition of Sick Building Syndrome

The term Sick Building Syndrome, is used to describe situations in which building occupants experience acute negative physical and mental effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a contaminated area when no specific illness or cause can be identified.

People in sick buildings often complain of symptons such as headaches, skin, eyes, nose or throat irritations, nose bleeds, dizziness, nausea, difficulty in concentrating along with physical and mental fatigue.

The reason the home or building may be suspected is that most people report releif soon after leaving the infected home/building.

Although not all the reasons for sick building syndrome are known, it is logically assumed that the negative health effects of sick building syndrome can be at least partly attributed to various mould, bacterial and viral contamination.
