Mold brings in a lot of health problems. And the teachers and students of Loughman Oaks Elementary School in Florida experienced a number of them.
The spores in the campus spread in eight of its kindergarten classrooms in building seven, thus, sickening both the staff and the students. Hence, it was decided that they would be shut down for the moment.
Meanwhile, the affected classes were temporarily transferred somewhere in the school. It was expected though that everything would be back to normal by January 14.
It was in April last year when the problem was first noticed. An inspection revealed that irregular air conditioning of the classrooms was the probable cause of it. But besides the rooms, a mold issue was also discovered in the portables and an estimated 25 of it were evacuated as well.
To resolve the problem, cleaning of the mold-invaded classrooms was scheduled to begin Wednesday morning.

“Eight kindergarten classrooms at Loughman Oaks Elementary are being evacuated this week because of multiplying mold spores that teachers say have been making them sick for years.
The displaced classes will be dispersed elsewhere in the school until the mold is removed and the rooms are cleaned by an indoor air quality control company, said Greg Rivers, director of operations for Polk schools.”

Allergies, coughing and sneezing are some of the minor problems that the fungus could bring. However, its toxic varieties, like black mold, had been linked before to major health concerns as lung bleeding. They were said to even cause death in worst cases.
Those two solutions were designed to kill the fungus and prevent its return, respectively. And so, you could do a complete treatment using them.
But that’s not all. Molderizer and Safe Shield also offer a truly effective remediation process. Hotels, hospitals and mold removal companies have proven that they are both very efficient. And being organic-based, they are safe as well for health and the environment.
