While schools represent a small percentage of the total number of buildings in the United States, they are occupied by four times as many occupants as an office building. The occupants are generally children that are more susceptible than adults to indoor environmental problems. Since children are smaller than adults, the same amount of pollutant in the environment is proportionately more harmful. Asthma and allergy are growing problems in this segment of the population. The consequences of exposure to poor indoor environmental quality can result in lethargy, nasal congestion, sore throat, coughing, rashes, teary or itchy eyes, respiratory illnesses, reduced cognitive ability and many other symptoms depending upon the pollutant.
Many school districts are using portable classrooms to house students either temporarily or permanently. These structures are susceptible to mold growth and damage due to water intrusion. It is estimated that there are over 90,000 portable classrooms in use in California alone.
