Identify deficiencies that may impact IEQ and/or sources of odor concerns. Typically includes the following depending on the nature of concern, but not limited to:
- interview/questionnaire of concern individual(s)
- inspection above drop ceiling (condition of roof deck, pipe insulation, return air plenum)
- inspection of ventilation system (operation of variable air volume box and outdoor air dampers, check controls, measurements of carbon dioxide, temperature and relative humidity, sources near outdoor air intake, measure return and supply air volume, cleanliness of coils, liner and condensate pan)
- inspection of exterior
- inspection below drop ceiling (housekeeping, sink and floor drain traps, signs of past and present moisture concern via visual and/or moisture meter, mold growth, ensure connection of current and capping of abandoned sanitary vents, odorizers, excessive plants and fabric items, identify potential pathways, and measure volatile organic compounds, carbon monoxide, and lighting)
Date(s) of Assessment: December 15 and 21, 2020
The leak was corrected by Building Services (Plumbing) the morning of December 14, 2020.
Room 405 - The leak originated from a sink in this classroom and impacted approximately 10 linear feet of casework as well as the bottom of the cabinet containing the sink. The bottom cabinet was completely removed and holes were drilled into the impacted casework to facilitate drying. Fans were placed within the casework (where the bottom of the cabinet had been removed) and outside of the casework to facilitate drying. On December 21, the moisture content in a small portion (~ 3 linear feet) of the cabinet remained slightly elevated, however the moisture content had dropped significantly. The fans were repositioned to continue the drying effort. The areas were left to dry over the long weekend (Christmas Break), which would be more than enough time to dry the 3 linear feet of casework completely.
Room 604 - The carpet at the entryway of the classroom had gotten wet. Fans were placed the day of the leak and the carpet was dry per a moisture meter on December 15.
Room 605 - The carpet at the entryway of the classroom had gotten wet. Fans were placed the day of the leak and the carpet was dry per a moisture meter on December 15. This room had casework in the vicinity of the leak that was not reported to have been impacted. The casework was probed with a moisture meter to verify and no elevated moisture was detected.
Room 606 - Portions of the carpet in the classroom had gotten wet. Fans were placed the day of the leak and the carpet was dry per a moisture meter on December 15. Drywall was also impacted by the leak. The cove base was removed, holes drilled into the drywall, and fans placed to facilitate drying. The drywall was dry per a moisture meter on December 15.
The response actions above were conducted to prevent microbial growth due to the leak. No further action is required.
