Mold cleanup at Sexton High School

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – We have an update now to a story we first told you about in October.

6 News obtained pictures of what looked to be mold on the ceiling’s of Sexton High School.

Originally school officials said immediate tests for mold had come back negative.

But a company did find mold inside the building but that’s not all.

The “mold evaluation report” for Sexton High School is in and the results are interesting.

Evaluators found a 4-inch patch of mold in the 4th floor hallway.

The affected tile has been removed.

But it turns out the other dark spots in the pictures we showed you were food and drink stains on hallway ceiling tiles.

The stains showed up on the first through third floors.

“Fibertec Industrial Hygiene Services”, the company that did the evaluation, put together six recommendations for the Lansing School District moving forward.

Removing the moldy ceiling tile was on it and cleaning the food stains is also on that list.

The list also includes repairing damaged plaster and metal ceiling tiles as well as repairing some exposed pipe insulation in a stairwell.

The superintendent tells us that all recommendations should be met sometime today.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
