Resumen A database of indoor air concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde and ammonia in office environments was analysed to suggest interpretation guidelines for measurements in office buildings with suspected indoor air problems. Indoor air samples were collected for VOCs from 176 office buildings, 23 offices for formaldehyde, and 14 office buildings for ammonia in 2001-2006. Although the buildings had reported indoor air complaints, a walk-through inspection by indoor air specialists showed no exceptional sources of indoor air pollutants. The measurements of chemical pollutants did not indicate any clear reason for the complaints. Guidance values for various indoor air pollutants are proposed.
