What causes SBS?

Some microorganisms negatively affect the body. To date, research has shown two fungi,
Penicillium and Stachybotrys, have been linked to this syndrome. These fungi usually grow
and cause air problems when building materials, such as walls and carpets, become wet.
Combined with a dirty environment, the fungi grow.

What are the symptoms of SBS?

The usual symptoms include eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches and fatigue.
The symptoms usually dissipate once occupants have left an infected building.
