Massachusetts School Mold Removal and Remediation
to the EPA, twenty percent of the U.S. population, or nearly 55 million
people, spend their days in elementary and secondary schools. Unfortunately,
about twenty percent of the 80,000 public schools have a failure rating
for indoor air quality testing.
Because of their time spent in Massachusetts schools, children are
particularly susceptible to pollutants. Schools or day care facilities
with poor indoor air quality can test positive for Stachybotrys,
or black mold. The presence of mold sports can cause health problems
for children, teachers and administrators. School children may experience
health symptoms that can range from headaches, coughing, nasal congestion,
ear infections and other respiratory problems.
Where can mold appear in a school?
HVAC systems can become
contaminated with mold, spreading spores into every classroom. Air conditioners
that are not properly maintained can sweat and this excess moisture can
cause mold growth.
Schools have many areas with high traffic. Moisture can be tracked in by
people coming in and out of the school. Carpets can also be moldy after
children spill milk, food, glue - and the occasional throw up. When young
children sleep near the floor at nap time, they are exposed to the moldy
carpets. This can result in sick kids.
In time, mold can cause structural damage to a building if the
problem remains unaddressed. Proper water removal is important to
keeping mold growth from occurring. Due to limited budgets, structural
problems are ignored or patched over. Rotting wood or mold-infested
boards in classrooms may be 'fixed' with just a coat of new paint.
The cost of MA school mold remediation is less than the cost of
replacing an entire building.
