Decatur, GA (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
Mold was discovered in the newly established Globe Academy. And in connection with it, Florida air quality testing company, AGC Environmental, revealed a tactic how the public could prevent the huge expense that usually come with mold treatment.
A report from wsbtv.com dated January 23, 2014 stated that the various mold issues in the charter school were discovered when the parents noticed their children going home sick. It detailed that they then relayed the situation to a news outlet which, eventually, reached Board Chairman Miguel Dominguez and prompted an immediate response.
The post said that an indoor air quality testing confirmed that mold was indeed present at the school and that it required prompt action. Moreover, it relayed that toxic mold was also found at the restroom on the hall for the 2nd and 3rd grades.
To resolve the issue, it was stated in the post that the school's ceiling were removed, buckets of water were cleared and windows were opened for better circulation of the air. Meanwhile, as the treatment proceeded, it shared that the affected restroom was closed and the classes were temporarily relocated.
Below is a part of the said post.
“Board Chairman Miguel Dominguez told Channel 2’s Liz Artz that they responded immediately and have kept parents in the loop every step of the way.
The test concluded enough mold was found in the school that immediate action was needed to remove ceiling tiles, eliminate buckets of standing water and increase air flow by opening windows.”
According to AGC Environmental, because they are a health threat, mold spores need to be eliminated. However, to avoid the big expense that usually comes with a mold treatment, it stated that the process must be implemented early. That's because by then, they haven't spread widely yet, it explained.
Nonetheless, before mold could be removed, its presence got to be confirmed first, AGC Environmental said. And as it stated, air quality testing and mold inspection are the two processes that could do it.
When it comes to Florida air quality testing though, the company only recommended its own service. It asserted that it is the best choice as it meets the state's federal guidelines.
Like its other environmental services, AGC Environmental added that its Florida indoor air quality testing is also implemented by certified experts. And to top it off, it stated that they offer valuable insights and hard data that could be used in court purposes and insurance claims.
