If its a new building, formaldehyde preservatives come to mind - similar symptoms. If it's an older building, mold may be a possibility. There may also be fugitive formaldehyde emissions from improperly sealed ductwork - and the list keeps on going. May want to check the normal (usual) offenders first before you go looking for zebras.

I have had similar reactions before. Is the person allergic to mold? Found out in a previous employer that they had mold growing in the hvac ducting.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Air Sampling???

Hello all,

Recently, a colleague of mine is experiencing symptom of irritation, itching, and allergic reaction every time he enters one of the buildings at our workplace.  This is a music building.  Do you know what kind of air sampling I should conduct?  Any suggestions on how I approach this problem?
