Guilford County Health Dept has a moldy school on their hands.
Oak Ridge Elementary is going to be closed this summer for mold clean-up after being directed by the health department to:
- Clean and repair the heat, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system
- Analyze the school’s dehumidification system
- Continue to fix problems identified in previous reports, which include removing carpets and repairing roof leaks.
A survey of the school reveals symptoms of mold exposure including headaches, dry eyes, unusual sneezing episodes, difficulty breathing or asthma attacks and nosebleeds.
