Are Moldy Schools Destroying Our Kids?

Are Moldy Schools Destroying Our Kids?

Mold is a big issue these days. One reason is the damage it does to
lungs and immune systems. And who does it damage the most? Kids
and senior citizens.

Well, let's just talk about kids right now. And let's narrow our
conversation to the school systems. Why? Because kids spend up to
8 hours a day
there, breathing in whatever is floating around in the air.

Let's talk about schools now.

Every year, somewhere in the USA schools are being closed down
because of mold. Why are so many schools moldy?

The main cause of any mold problem is ultimately water. Something
is too wet.

Now if a building floods, we just dry it out and that usually stops mold
from growing, right? Well, if you get the building totally dry within 48
hours the answer is yes. That's the time it takes for most mold spores
to start growing actual mold colonies. Most of the time it takes
bureaucrats 48 hours to find out there has been a flood. Then there are
committees to decide how to dry the building. And then there are bids
to get the lowest cost.

So drying isn't enough. Takes too long. Mold is growing and it can
continue to grow after the building is dried. All it needs now is moisture
in the air.

Speaking of air, we also have to consider air conditioners. Most schools
use air conditioners that are bought cheap and maintained by the lowest
bidder.. Air conditioners that aren't maintained


properly sweat and the
moisture can cause mold growth.

Also associated with maintenance is changing air filters. Many times this
isn't done due to school budgets. Filters cost money. Not a lot of money, but
money. Some schools don't change there A/C filters until someone from
the state comes to inspect.

Then there are carpets. Carpets are moldy. Kids spill food, milk, and glue
onto carpets. They throw up on carpets. These things feed mold. Teachers
make kids sleep on the floor at nap time.Their faces are pressed into the
moldy carpets. Results: sick kids.

But the ultimate reason for moldy schools is politics. This applies to
everything mentioned above, ie carpets, filters and drying.

Schools have to report to taxpayers. That's YOU. If a school board member
says to you the taxpayer, "We can spend the money on books, football uniforms
or healthy air." What are you going to say? Most people want things they can see
and touch and point to.

So if you want healthy kids with strong lungs and good immune systems,
the responsibility is in your hands. Go to school board meetings, talk to the
radio and tv stations.If you need ammunition, tell the politicians that mold
free schools win more games in sports. Championship teams are something
that can be pointed to like books.
