Talk About An Extreme Mold Problem!
A California woman says that the apartment she shares with her asthmatic son has been flooded six times over the past two years. Because of this, fungi has started growing inside the apartment, resulting in mushrooms sprouting from her carpet.
According to a Fox News Report, Natalie Wise and her 11-year-old son have lived in the Diablo Riviera Apartments on Fulton Avenue for two years. She says her landlord has done nothing to help with the flooding problem, even after mushrooms began to sprout up from the mold.
“I looked down to vacuum and I saw this (fungus growing in the carpet),” Wise told Fox40. “At first, I thought he (Wise’s son) had peeled an orange, and I got down closer and I realized it was a mushroom.”
While apartment living often has its problems, no one should have to pay to live in an environment like this. It is especially troubling that someone with severe asthma would be living under these conditions. Mold effects indoor air quality and can lead to a variety of respiratory problems if left untreated.
