It's a shame that every year we see these types of indoor air quality issues creep up when custodians go in a week before school opens. Education is the key; environmental consultants need to be utilized to educate the maintenance staff on how to condition the buildings during the summer off-season. Mold testing and mold remediation can be avoided with education. Due diligence in finding a qualified building science expert goes a long way in preventing these problems we see each and every year.

So no one has caulked around the PA speakers since 2002? Isnt there a regular schedule of maintenance that should have been taking place? Buildings dont take care of themselves!
