NCFI Polyurethanes Wants Healthy Schools

Words: Dan Kamys

NCFI Polyurethanes announced a corporate initiative,, to help make every school being built and those being renovated healthy environments for children by educating architects, builders, school boards, administrators, superintendents, principals and teachers about the dangers of mold and the simple ways to prevent it.

When mold grows out of control in a classroom and school environment, it releases spores that are breathed in by all children. According to a Government Accounting Office report, 20 percent of the country's 80,000 public schools have indoor air quality problems.

The company believes most, if not all, of the nation's public schools can be made healthier by paying more attention to the building's envelope ??? the exterior walls, roof and insulation. The program will include free educational materials and an informational Web site.
