Is Mold in School Making Your Child Sick?

EMSL Analytical offers quality mold testing, as well as sampling products


Studies estimate that a third or more of American schools have mold and other indoor air pollutants that are serious enough to provoke respiratory issues, says CNN in a special report on air problems making children sick in schools.
The news organization also cites a national survey of school nurses which found that 40 percent knew of students and staff adversely affected by indoor pollutants, such as mold.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) affirms that indoor mold exposure is linked to upper respiratory tract symptoms, cough, and wheeze in otherwise healthy people; to asthma symptoms in those with asthma; to hypersensitivity pneumonitis in susceptible individuals; and to respiratory illness in otherwise healthy children.
“Since 1981, EMSL Analytical has tested numerous schools for mold contamination and helped them begin the remediation process,” states Diane Miskowski, MPH, Business Development Manager at EMSL. “We also rent and sell the products needed to gather samples for analysis, which simplifies the process for our clients greatly.”
