Improperly ventilated or maintained buildings can sustain severe damage from mold and humidity during the warm summer months. June is the best time to establish and re-evaluate cleaning, maintenance, and chemical handling practices to ensure that your facilities are properly maintaned and promote, rather than hinder, academic performance next year. The following maintenance tips and best practices will help reduce the presence of mold, mildew, chemical fumes, and other allergens to improve the overall quality of the air in your schools. Please consider adding the CIRMA and EPA-recommended Summer Maintenance procedures listed below to your regular maintenance program.
Note: CIRMA's new Property Conservation Best Practice Training program provides property managers and facilities employees the tools they need to develop and manage cost-effective maintenacne programs to extend the useful service life of the buildings in their care.
