SOOOO... I opened my door on Monday morning to 3-4 inches of water... Here's how it happened! On Friday, the drinking fountain in my classroom would not turn off after one of my students got a drink. The janitor checked it and said he couldn't turn it off because there was no shut-off valve and he would have to turn off ALL of the school's water. He said Maintainance was being called and they would send someone over to look at it. It was still running hours later and the office said, "Go home! They are coming to fix it!" Hmmm... we still don't know who dropped the ball but it was still running Monday morning! So help me understand this part though??? They sucked out the water, brought in 2 fans to dry everything out but DID NOT pull up the carpet. When I asked why they weren't pulling up the carpet I was told, "This is high traffic carpet with rubber padding under it. It is not like the padding you have at home. Because it is rubber it will dry out. We are also treating the carpet with a chemical that will prevent mildew or mold." Today I opened my classroom door and OMG, it smelled so bad that I was gagging! They sprayed the carpet with deodorizer but it still was stinky at 5pm. They are putting my furniture back in tomorrow and say that I can be back in my room on Thursday... what do you all think?? Doesn't sound right to me but I am not a carpet expert. Any input???
