Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
A mold problem was plaguing Virginia's Main Street Library. And in response to it, AGC Environmental, a Florida mold inspection company, gave out an advise how to maintain a safe indoor air quality.
According to a report from dailypress.com, which was published on January 30, 2014, the problem was discovered in November and the management is now working on getting it fixed. It detailed that it particularly affected the non-fiction and reference books of the library located at the 2nd floor of the building.
Newport News Library Director Izabela Cieszynski said in the report that they are not sure about the source of the mold but it could be the automatic doors, which allowed the entry of high humidity. Despite the closure of the contaminated area though, she said that the public could still checkout specific books.
Below is an excerpt from the said report.
"Moisture is the enemy of librarians in humid climes and Newport News is no exception."
"The latest victims are non-fiction and reference collections housed on the second floor of the Main Street Library, where mold was found growing on the books."
"Volunteers are helping clean the books of mold, and "we're in the process of getting a vendor to come in and clean that collection," said Newport News Library Director Izabela Cieszynski."
AGC Environmental said that mold greatly affects a place's indoor air quality. Wherever it grows, it stated that its spores could go airborne and threaten the health of the people.
Because of that, the company stressed that mold remediation is essential in keeping a safe indoor environment. Nonetheless, before it is implemented, it said that the fungus' presence must first be confirmed. And to do that, it asserted that an air test and mold inspection are needed.
For a Florida air quality testing and mold inspection though, AGC Environmental cited that its services are the best.
The company cited that its Florida mold inspectors and environmental services consultants are certified experts. It assured as well that its processes are in accordance with the state's guidelines.
Moreover, AGC Environmental added that its experts and consultants offer detailed report of the problem. That data it provides, it stated, could be used for court purposes, insurance claims and purchase of a new house.
