Clearing the Air: a Model for Investigating Indoor Air Quality in Texas Schools.

Web Abstract: 
Reviews a pilot project focused on indoor air quality assessment at a local school, utilizing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Indoor Air Quality Tools for Schools program. Findings from this approach were compared with an air-sampling program to determine if use of Tools for Schools was sufficient to identify conditions related to adverse health effects. Data were gathered for formaldehyde and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs), ozone, particulate matter (PM10), mold, relative humidity, and temperature. Levels of ozone and PM10 and all VOC levels except formaldehyde were found to be within government standards. Mold, however, was widespread, including those associated with allergy and asthma.
