Black mold growth at Madison Elementary School in Madison, Alabama, which was brought to notice a few weeks ago by some parents, has now been removed.
The operations and maintenance supervisor for the school district, Kevin Guest, made a presentation to the Madison school board regarding the black mold abatement on June 26. He said that the experts from Terrell, a third party group hired for mold removal, visited the school three times in early June. The air quality test results came out to be satisfactory however, mold growth was visible at the ceiling tiles in a section of the school building.
It was learned that the cause of mold growth was condensation in the school’s air conditioning system. Guest said that the damaged tiles and pipe insulation, which was causing the moisture, were replaced this week.
