FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) – Wright State University announced Thursday that it has closed off a conference room of its Student Union after discovering evidence of mold and moisture found in the ductwork.
The university says that staff observed a musty smell in the Discovery Room and reported it. Samples were taken that indicted elevated mold count in one of the 15 air handlers that service the building.
Portable air conditioners or dehumidifier units may be used to maintain proper air quality, temperature, and humidity. Work to fix the issue may take weeks.
However, the rest of the facility remains in use and is not likely to be shut down, according to a university spokesperson.
