The term Sick House Syndrome is used to describe situations in which building occupants experience acute health effects, not a specific illness but respiratory related and other issues that appear to be linked to time spent in a home or work place.
How common is sick house syndrome? A 1984 World Health Organization report suggested up to 30% of new and remodeled buildings worldwide may be subject of complaints related to poor indoor air quality. Personally, I think it is becoming more prevalent with the current practice of building homes that are wrapped with Tyvek, air sealed at every little crack and are super insulated, hence you have a building that has very little fresh air exchange.
