Updated: Storm Forced Mold Remediation at Sherwood High

Updated, 4:13 p.m.: In late July, more than a day of rain dropped more than 3 inches on Montgomery County, subsequently flooding Sherwood High School.

With the water gone, four classrooms were left with mold, and cleanup began immediately, Montgomery County Public Schools spokeswoman Gboyinde Onijala said Tuesday. After that was completed, 22 other classrooms were found to have mold, and crews completed remediation in those classrooms Tuesday, she said.

Hillmann Consulting of Alexandria did air quality sampling and visual inspections of the school. Rolyn Companies of Rockville did the mold remediation, Onijala said.

Hillmann teams will perform indoor air quality tests to ensure there are no elevated levels with results expected Wednesday or Thursday, Onijala said. The classrooms are expected to be ready for next week’s start of school.
