Next steps to halt mold
After reading article in Stamford Advocate Oct. 18 about the Stamford Board of Education’s efforts in searching for causes for “half of the city’s public schools has escalated to an emergency-type situation,” it reminds me of a situation that involved a particular private school in Stamford many years ago having a severe mold outbreak during summer break when rugs were washed and left to dry with windows left closed and not enough steps taken for proper ventilation.
Within a week or so, administrators found these classrooms were filled with mold due to the moisture left and scurried to clean the affected rugs, walls and affected areas before fall classes started.
I propose timelines for appearance of mold be analyzed as well as first step including proper ventilation by windows being left open and/or heat or other drying methods be utilized as part of the plan.
