District: Mold cleaning efforts ‘effective and successful’ at two Vestal schools


VESTAL (WBNG) — Officials from the Vestal Central School District have released a statement updating parents on the presence of mold found at Glenwood and Tioga Hills Elementary Schools.

According to a statement released to parents on Friday, “subsequent air test results indicate that our cleaning efforts have been effective and successful.”

The district says items with visible mold on them were disposed of, and the areas where they were found mold were thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.

The district says it is partnering with ServPro for additional cleaning and humidity control in the schools.

Read the complete statement below:

In follow-up to this week’s previous communication, I would like to keep you updated with the progress at Glenwood/Tioga Hills Elementary Schools. Subsequent air test results indicate that our cleaning efforts have been effective and successful. Porous items with visible mold, such as area rugs, cloth, and cardboard have been disposed of, and those affected areas have been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.

As an additional action, the District has partnered with ServPro for further cleaning and humidity control in the buildings. This is being done primarily as a preventative measure. While our custodial staff’s cleaning endeavors have been productive, working with ServPro will provide additional manpower and equipment. Although all affected areas have already been cleaned, a further deep cleaning and the use of commercial-grade dehumidifiers will help to ensure that additional occurrences are avoided.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your building principal.
