Twenty-five subjects assessed the emissions from building materials: linoleum, cement mortar with and without fly ash, gypsum board and tiles with air cleaning properties and natural organic sheep wool. The ratings were made at different material loadings and in combinations with linoleum. The results showed that except for natural organic product, increasing loading and combining materials with linoleum increased intensity of odor.
