Mold issues are prolonging the normalcy of the Spartanburg County Courthouse.
County employees on the 3rd floor of the courthouse have been relocated, except the Master-In-Equity office. The Solicitor’s Office has been moved to the Sheriff’s Department to work, holding some General Sessions Plea Hearings in the detention center.
Clerk of Court Hope Blackley says that a new schedule has been made for clean up and restoration of all floors, to speed up the process for employees who have been displaced.
The entire 3rd floor including Master-In-Equity will be closed for restoration, until the 19th. Offices on the 3rd floor besides the solicitor’s office will be moved to the 1st floor. During that week the 1st floor will undergo work.
On the 26th of September, the entire 2nd floor will be closed for tests and restoration.
On Monday evening, an air quality test revealed that black mold was found in a magistrate court room. A test on Tuesday morning showed the black mold was no longer there. The clean up company will be monitoring the HVAC system and the clean up of that, to make sure there is no black mold traveling.
