Mold in Schools

School Mold Problems in Toms River, Woodbridge, Middletown, NJ

Mold is a naturally occurring effect of New Jersey’s warm, humid climate during the spring, summer, and early fall. Mold spores are part of our environment; they continually waft through the air indoors and outside.

Mold problems start when these spores come into contact with water, moisture, or high humidity and attach to the surface of organic matter that they eat, or more accurately, dissolve. In the right environment of air, water, and food, mold spores begin to multiply and form colonies inside buildings. Mold formation, left untreated, causes property damage and health problems for its occupants. Schools are especially problematic with mold growth because classrooms are relatively small areas with limited airflow where children and teachers spend hours at a time breathing in the same air.

When building materials or furnishings are damp for more than 48 hours, mold will likely start to grow. Schools can experience water damage in a variety of ways -- roof or plumbing leaks, floods, and poor drainage of water runoff or landscape irrigation, just to name a few.

Schools that are damp support mold growth and students and staff, particularly those with allergies or respiratory problems, may develop adverse health effects.

Students and teachers can become sick from mold in schools. Because sensitivity levels can vary widely from person to person, any type of mold at any level may be potentially harmful. If mold is growing on the ceiling or inside the wall of a classroom, some kids may not be affected at all while others experience flu-like symptoms such as runny noses, coughing, and breathing difficulties.

Some types of mold emit toxins that can elicit more severe responses. For example, Aspergillus and Stachybotrys have forced the closure of schools throughout the country and have been linked to lung and respiratory infections.
