Residences are very prone to mold presence. But they aren’t the only ones susceptible to the fungus’ growth. No thanks to the unusually wet summer, mold infestation has also become a common and big problem in schools. In fact, even in hospitals, it’s causing a disruption just like it did in Martinsburg VA Medical Center.
A report related that due to the discovery of mold, some 175 patients in the said hospital were moved. They were currently staying with family or friends or with other rooms in the center unaffected by the spores.
The mold was particularly found in the stand-alone air-conditioning units in 210 rooms of the center on August 22. On the same day, mold clean-up by the hospital’s crew started. And on Saturday, August 24, professional mold exterminators came in to resolve the problem.
Back in 2007, Martinsburg VA Medical Center also had a mold encounter. To prevent the repeat of it, the hospital observes two mold inspections every year. But in light of the current infestation, it is considering increasing the number of it.

“All 175 patients at the Martinsburg VA Medical Center (MWV) domiciliary have been moved out of their rooms after mold was found in a majority of the stand-alone air conditioning units located in 210 rooms.
“They told us that we’d be back in here on Monday at the latest, and now we’re hearing eight weeks and basically everyone here was displaced,” said MWV patient Paul Wait.
MWV representatives say they moved quickly to make sure the problem was taken care of. They say their own staff started cleanup on August 22, the same day the mold was discovered. They then brought in a professional abatement crew on Saturday after finding more mold.”
