Worried about mold
I moved into my husband's apartment about a year ago when we got married. Since then, I've developed asthma. I know it's due to mold. There is a mold problem in the apartment. I've found it growing in the air conditioning closet, under the cabinets, in the bathrooms, and under the carpet. Although I've cleaned it up as much as I could, there's no way to entirely get rid of the mold. They won't replace the carpet until we move out. The mold I found in the cabinets was black and slimy, and it was growing in a puddle of water. I'm worried it's the deadly kind of black mold. I clean it up, and it comes back.
We can't move. There are no apartments available anywhere since this hurricane we just had wiped out many people's homes. We've bought a lot, but it will be a year so so before we will be able to build. I don't have a job right now, and I spend a lot of time at home. I am worried that even though I am on medication for asthma, there might be permanent damage being done. I don't know what kind of damage this black mold could be doing to me! I've never had asthma in my life, and I've also been getting dizzy spells and colds, which I never seemed to get before. I told the apartment manager about the problem. She's getting some people out to clean out the AC ducts but I think the problem is more widespread than just that.
Does anybody know anything about mold, and what it could do? Also, any suggestions on how to reduce the problem while I have to live with it for the next year?
