FAIRFAX, Va., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Madison Taylor Indoor Environmental has been contracted to provide mold testing and mold remediation services for public schools with concerning mold issues in Virginia, Maryland, and D.C.
Mold is a growing concern in educational facilities. Many schools have moisture conditions which can lead to mold growth. Water events, including flooding, roof, window, foundation, and plumbing leaks, elevated relative humidity, poor ventilation, and malfunctioning HVAC systems, can all lead to mold issues in aging school facilities. Some schools have added trailers to increase class space and accommodate an expanding student population. These trailers are susceptible to significant mold concerns. Many have unsealed, poorly ventilated crawlspaces, inadequate insulation, and exterior joint leaks, which create conditions conducive to mold growth.
As parents, teachers, and students become educated on indoor air quality effects, many of these facilities have added indoor air quality testing and monitoring to their routine maintenance to ensure students are learning in a healthy environment. Studies have shown that prolonged exposures to building dampness and mold have been associated with headaches, dizzy spells, respiratory issues, sinusitis, itchy, watery eyes, and hives. Individuals with asthma and allergies may be at risk for progression to more severe conditions if the connection between illness and exposure is left unchecked.
John Taylor, owner of Madison Taylor Inc. and Certified Indoor Environmentalist, encourages parents who have concerns about indoor air quality and their child's learning environment to request testing information from their local school district. "Many schools have testing performed for mold, bacteria, lead, asbestos and other indoor air quality concerns annually. If you have concerns and testing has not been performed, request it."
John Taylor continued, "Mold has proven to be a legitimate concern in many schools and buildings in Virginia, Maryland and D.C. It has been rewarding helping resolve these indoor air quality problems, which protects so many from potential health-related conditions."
