Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 21, 2014
A mold confirmation extended the closure of Hinsdale Middle School. And in response to it, Florida air quality testing company AGC Environmental gave out a number of tips to aid the public prevent a mold problem as worse as the one reported.
Based on the post from chicagotribune.com published on January 20, 2014, the campus was initially forced to closure last Friday. It detailed that it was because of the spores found on the dry wall and in the various surfaces of the school.
But a test recently confirmed that the fungus was indeed mold, it related. And so to give way to its cleanup, it shared that the officials decided to extend the cancellation of classes. It detailed that the school would also be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.
A water damage from a pipe burst was believed to be the cause of the mold growth, according to the report.
Here is a part of the said report.
“Hinsdale Middle School will be closed for at least two more days this week after tests confirmed mold was growing in the school, officials said Monday.
District officials canceled classes and closed the building Friday to allow cleaning crews to do a deep cleaning of the school that was built in 1976. Samples of suspected mold were sent for testing, which confirmed the substance is mold.”
ACG Environmental stated that a water damage is a very common cause of a mold problem. And because it could happen anywhere, it cited that anyone could be a mold victim. For that reason, it advised the public to be vigilant of any mold sign.
If one suspects a mold presence, it stressed that a person must immediately confirm it, so proper action could be taken. With that, it said that the worst effects and huge spending could be avoided.
But to correctly confirm the fungus' presence, it suggested an indoor air quality test among other methods. It said that it's the best way as it does not only let one know that there's mold, but it also determines the severity of the problem.
Moreover, for a Florida air quality testing, AGC Environmental said that its own is what the public should get. As it reasoned out, that's because like its other environmental services, it is implemented by certified experts. In addition, it stated that they also offer data about the problem that could be used in insurance claims, purchase of houses and other court purposes.
