WEST POINT, NY
West Point Military Academy Mold Treatment
GETI was retained to treat the West Point Military Academy 181-C apartment complex for widespread mold infestation in Fort Montgomery, New York. GETI found that the moisture content was greater than 19% in the apartments. Based on EPA data and scientific research, a moisture content of greater than 19% or relative humidity greater than 60% can allow mold growth if NOT Dried within 24-48 hours. Mold was visually present in attic and basement spaces in August 2019.
Older apartment complexes contain many small rooms and hard to work around spaces. This requires added time to prepare the spaces for heat treatment.
GETI field teams installed thermal protection or heat shields around apartment appliances prior to treatment. Structural Pasteurization of each building utilized up to 20 inches of static pressure-positive air flow reaching microbial thermal death points using the JetGreen™ Micro Turbine patented technology. Air Scrubbing vacuums and HEPA Filtration units removed residual solids after treatment.
Independent post-treatment testing and analysis showed trace to non-detect for mold spores. This met the treatment targets.
