Mold Tests Help Schools

August 21, 2006
PHOENIX - Aerotech P&K donated over 700 units of its 10 Minute Mold Testâ„¢ to The Center for School Mold Help, a nonprofit school aid organization based in California. Aerotech recognized that there is a growing concern for unhealthy school environments. The donation was intended to help the school further its mission to provide advocacy and comprehensive, up-to-date public education, services, research, and resources focusing on school mold prevention and solutions.

"We deeply appreciate this donation," said Susan Brinchman, founder and executive director of The Center for School Mold Help. "We will encourage those concerned about school mold to use these invaluable aids."

The 10 Minute Mold Test is a rapid, biochemical mold test used to confirm the presence of mold on building surfaces.

"We acknowledge that many school districts around the country do not have funds budgeted to address water damage and mold issues. This test can readily be used to confirm if mold is indeed present," said David Fetveit, Aerotech P&K general manager.
