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 of Assessment: June 2, 2021
During a routine Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Walkthrough, mold growth was identified on the gypsum roof deck (above the drop-ceiling) in the media center.

Building Maintenance (Roofing) identified and patched several voids above the area of concern.
A board-approved restoration contractor removed the impacted paper, cleaned the remaining impacted areas, and then encapsulated the area within a negative pressure enclosure.
