    Beware of hidden mold!

    A classroom I was in a number of years ago had an outside (hallway) wall that got soaked overnight by a spewing water fountain. They said it would eventually dry out and they left it. My room smelled for over 2 years because the insulation in the wall was wet and got mildewy. I was also sick much more than usual when I was in that room. I have allergies.

    Now for general stinkiness, I found this past year that my room smelled much better with the addition of some house plants!! My mother passed away and I received many that I brought to school. I have 2 peace lilies. These are supposed to help clean the air. I also have several other plants. don't know if they really help or not, but this past spring my room didn't have its usual stink after the hot, sweaty kids came in from p.e.
