Re: Home Mold Testing Kit?

That's good advice and I went ahead and signed a lease with a mold "addendum" that said that any mold found would be taken care of and I wouldn't have to pay rent until it was remediated.

So guess what?! I go in to clean up and start finding signs of hidden mold all over. They did fix a few things, but not to the extent that it really needs... The place needs a match to it. I hired a specialist who found 3 different types of mold behind the walls, I went in and mold was growing on top of the toilet seats! And that was ~after~ they had replaced the air conditioner! The mold expert said they had been cosmetically covering these problems up for a very long time.

The long story gets even longer when I notice the problem is outside as well. Mold is killing some of the trees and algae is choking out the pond and marsh area. I then find out there's a phosphate plant about a mile down the road that's had numerous "leaks" of hundreds of thousands of gallons of toxic wastewater that no doubt has ended up in the surrounding area creating nasty overgrowth of everything we don't want! ~And~ there's a tear in the reservoir liner and it could leak anytime! Maybe it already is...

It's a tragedy because at one time this place was awesome. It was previously a thriving bee farm, but they got hit with colony collapse disorder.

I'm out of the lease, but what about the next unsuspecting renter? They should have a toxic waste addendum or disclosure. My immune system took a hit every time I went there. If I had moved in, the dream home would have turned into the funeral home!
