Mold in the corners of my apartment! What can I do?

Is it my job to take care out it? Or is it the management's job to get rid of it? What should I do? The management is HORRIBLE here. You complain they make you fill out a form then after a few months when you go ask them when are they going to fix something they say there is no record of us filing a request or complaint! I live in California.

Should I take photos of it? I cleaned the areas before with bleach.

Oh and it grows around the windows too!

  • YUCK! I'd make the management take care of it! I'd make sure to take pics, and clean with a good cleaner---maybe bleach or something similar. Contact the health department and report it if management refuses to handle it. Also document, document, document!

  • it depends where the mold is coming from. Keep a copy of the reports you fill out and give them.

  • I used pure bleach to get rid of the mold I had. Eventually it came back and the idiot management painted over the mold.

  • Report to management AND call the Calif. Department of Consumer Affairs.
