[global network reporter Xu Luming] according to the US “air force times” on August 19, photos of mildew in the barracks of the US Army’s gungshan Air Force Base in South Korea appeared on social media last week. Emily Grabowski, public affairs director of the 8th fighter wing of the US air force, admitted in an email on August 18 that the moldy photos of the US military base were real 。 < / P > < p > the photos exposed on social media are said to have been taken in the corridor and lounge of the base dormitory, showing two sofas with obvious mold on them, and the walls of the corridor were also covered with mildew. Another group of photos seems to be taken by someone in the dormitory. You can see that there are mould on clothes, personal belongings, walls, ceiling and bathtub. Ronnie woods, the commander-in-chief of the US Air Force’s 8th fighter wing, said ensuring the quality of life of the pilots was a top priority for base leaders and he promised to give pilots a healthy living space, the US military said in a statement. “Our pilots worked very hard on the mission,” Woods said. “We will also continue to work hard to provide the best living environment for the personnel of the mountain base.” “The climate here poses a challenge to our quality of life, but our team has to work on it,” Ronnie woods added Glabovsky, a spokesman for the 8th fighter wing, said the weather at the mountain base had exacerbated mold growth, with air humidity in the area around the base typically between 80% and 100%, but record rainfall this year has increased humidity. Under normal circumstances in high humidity areas will appear such mold, but usually can be prevented, can also be through appropriate management measures and maintenance to solve this problem. At present, dehumidifiers have been equipped in individual dormitories with excessive humidity. In addition, the logistics department also provides 100 portable air conditioning units. When the air conditioning dehumidification system is not enough, it can be lifted at any time. Air Force personnel have learned how to reduce room humidity, including closing doors and windows, turning on bathroom exhaust fans, and using detergents to remove surface mold, grabovsky added. She also said that if that doesn’t work, you can report to the dormitory manager through the base’s app. The U.S. Air Force’s living facilities often face mold outbreaks, especially those deployed in warm and humid areas, according to the report. Last year, severe mold outbreaks at the San Antonio Lachlan joint base in Texas forced the base to relocate hundreds of personnel to inspect and maintain moldy dormitories.
