Tribal Works and PCC Cleaning & Restoration Complete Remediation
 
Pawhuska, Ok. - Osage Nation Tribal Works and PCC Cleaning & Restoration worked together from February 26th-28th to restore the southeast side of the building normally occupied by the Osage Minerals Council (OMC) and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). 
 
The building was constructed in 1980 and has served many entities, including the OMC, BIA, Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians (OST), and the Osage Nation Congress until 2017. 
 
The building structure contains a skylight, which, according to Tribal Works, was the source of the leak and primary cause of the damage.  Cladosporium, a form of common black mold, was discovered as a result of the damage.  This specific type of mold can cause an increased allergic reaction but is not typically dangerous to human beings. 
 
Tribal Works Director Ed Zaun and OMC Councilwoman Margo Gray worked together to contract with PCC Cleaning & Restoration.  PCC Cleaning & Restoration is owned by Lisa and Roger Fisher.  Lisa Fisher is the majority owner and an enrolled member of the Osage Nation. 
 
Much of the interior sheetrock was removed and replaced.  The inner layers of the exterior sheetrock were also detached and replaced.  The inside of the exterior walls was cleaned and treated with a plant-based, anti-microbial agent. The inside air was filtered during the entire process as well.  The building is back to a mold-free state and ready for all entities to re-occupy and resume normal duties.
