Severe Maine winters are hard on homes. Wind, ice, hail, snow… Our rooves, window frames, and doors can really take a beating and weather stripping doesn’t last forever. Not to mention the condensation that forms on windows and window seals. These issues lead to one big problem: Mold. It doesn’t matter if you rent or own your Maine home, you have the right to live in a clean, safe environment, free from smelly, unsightly, and potentially toxic mold. 

At Mold Test USA, we have done mold testing and inspection in many rental properties in Portland and elsewhere in Maine and have never had a problem. That said, you should always check local and state laws about your rights as a renter. In our opinion, if you are renting property and you and your family are breathing in potentially toxic mold spores, you have a right to know.

The Problem with Mold in Rental Apartments

One of the biggest issues with mold in rental apartments is that the maintenance worker is often the person called to deal with a mold issue. While maintenance workers must be knowledgeable about a number of difficult and intricate problems, mold inspection along with mold removal and remediation are not normally among them. This is problematic because the normal response to a visible mold problem is to wipe it down with a bleach cloth or sponge and paint over it. While this may seem like a reasonable way to deal with a mold problem, in reality you are making things worse for yourself. Wiping it down and painting over it actually causes potentially toxic mold spores to be released into your air at an even greater concentration. Not to mention the fact that the mold bloom will almost always come back relatively quickly.

A mold colony consists of millions of microbial mold spores, piled on top of each other. Because they are microscopic, the only time you can see mold with a naked eye is when a bloom is already dangerously large.
