Oct. 7, 2011 - PRLog -- In September, The Record published an article about mold being discovered in another California school campus. According to the article, the Washington School Development Center for the Handicapped was recently found to have high airborne levels of mold.  The building is part of the Lodi Unified School District.

The article states that this is the third school building this year to experience mold problems in the district.  There have also been other costly mold remediation projects, costing millions of dollars, during the previous several years.

Due to the struggling economy in many parts of the country, countless school districts have witnessed their maintenance budgets being slashed as state and local budgets get squeezed.  The resulting postponement, or elimination of preventative maintenance (PM) and capital projects, can turn avoidable or minor IAQ issues into significant and costly problems.  

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can cause illness requiring absence from school, and can cause acute health symptoms that decrease performance while at school.  In addition, recent data suggest that poor IAQ can reduce a person’s ability to perform specific mental tasks requiring concentration, calculation, or memory.”

One of the leading mold consulting firms, Clark Seif Clark, has extensive experience working with school districts to prevent and resolve IAQ problems due to mold and other contaminants.  The company has recently sponsored a video about the health effects due to mold exposure.  It can be seen at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbKoonHwvHM
