Languages of publication
Zanieczyszczenie powietrza pociąga za sobą koszty zarówno w wymiarze zdrowotnym jak i ekonomicznym. Chociaż większość ludzi jest świadoma zagrożeń wynikających z zanieczyszczonego powietrza to zazwyczaj łączą je z powietrzem zewnętrznym, zaś obecne w pomieszczeniach uznają za bezpieczne. Materiały budowlane, umeblowanie, dekoracje mieszkań i biur, szereg urządzeń oraz codziennych czynności uwalnia szkodliwe związki. Ich stężenia mogą być nawet 10 krotnie wyższe niż występujące na zewnątrz z wyjątkiem sąsiedztwa z trasami szybkiego ruchu, zakładów produkcyjnych i energetycznych. Niniejszy artykuł charakteryzuje źródła i ich rodzaje zanieczyszczeń obecnych w pomieszczeniach mieszkalnych i publicznych.
Air pollution entails costs both in health and economic terms. Although most people are aware of the dangers of contaminated air they usually combine pollutions with the outside air and consider indoor air as safe. Building materials, furnishings, decorations of apartments and offices, a number of facilities and daily activities release harmful compounds. Their concentrations can be up to 10 times higher than those in the outside, excepting the neighborhood of fast motion routes, manufactures, energy plants etc. This article characterizes sources and types of pollutants present in residential and public buildings.
