I coach boy’s basketball at a local high school in a dense, rural, and swampy temperature, which means that a lot of things end up with mold pretty often, and one of those things that ended up with mold, was MY locker room, and I was furious when I found out, and chalked it up to teenage boys being teenage boys and not looking after the place, which infuriated me.
I created a punishment practice and put them through their paces for an hour and a half of conditioning.
I felt slightly guilty when the janitor and an Heating and A/C professional approved me saying that the locker room’s air circulation was off due to old ductworks, and it was preventing the humidity from escaping, but the Heating and A/C professional explained that he will need to replace all of the ducts in the building to ensure it would begin circulation officially. He also said he needed to service the furnace in the basement while he was here. He found the mold in the carpet, and showed us how he had installed Heating and A/C ventilation at floor level to ensure that something like this would never happen again. He even showed the boys how he installed thermostats in not only that room, but also the gym, and my office, which I was happy about. I waited until later that afternoon to test out the cooling system in my office, it was amazing. I am so happy that we were able to get these things fixed, as the mold was also creating a bad odor that seemed to linger around the heater and A/C ducts and vents.
