Growing Number of Arizona Schools Facing Mold Problems


As August winds down children across Arizona are heading back to school, but problems await some school districts. Just this month it was reported that mold has been found at one Higley Unified School District elementary school and is believed to be present in two others. Earlier this summer mold was found at Red Mountain Ranch Elementary in Mesa and last year mold problems plagued Tempe Union High School District after microbial problems were found at Corona del Sol High School.

These mold problems are not limited to the greater Phoenix area as other areas across the state such as Tucson, Yuma and Prescott have faced similar situations in the past. As schools age and tight budgets get squeezed even tighter maintenance on some school buildings is at times postponed or delayed indefinitely. The lack of maintenance on these heavily used and aging buildings can make them conducive to water infiltration, HVAC failures, faulty plumbing and other conditions that can invite mold to grow.

Global Prevention Services (GPS), one of the nation’s largest microbial prevention and remediation companies, has been busy providing solutions. The nationwide company is headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona and has developed procedures and techniques to address the unrelenting problem of microbial contamination in schools for years.

The company has invested heavily in the development of their exclusive PureSpace® Process and line of PureSpace® Products that are ideal for school environments. “No other mold remediation and prevention company has access to the proprietary PureSpace® Process and line of environmentally friendly treatment products,” reported Michael Himelfarb, President of Global Prevention Services. “The products are safe and are used in our system to not only fix mold and microbial issues, but also prevent these problems in the first place.”
