Mold in Your New Elizabeth City, NC Home

When you move your family into a new home in Elizabeth City, NC, you have a lot to think about. Moving is stressful enough, with packing and physically moving stuff and then unpacking. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether or not your new home is safe and healthy for you and your family. Unfortunately, as this Elizabeth City mother found out, you can’t take health for granted.

Many landlords and property management companies have similar responses when their tenants complain of mold. They’ll send in a maintenance person to wipe your walls down with a rag and bleach, call the problem fixed, and forget about it. Sadly, this is exactly the thing you should not do. Bleach does nothing to kill mold spores and wiping mold down only causes millions of mold spores to break lose and fly through the air. That means they could actually make the problem worse! Not only is the problem exacerbated in the short term by wiping it down, the mold will come back in practically no time!

Take Matters into Your Own Hands

In North Carolina, landlords are required to make repairs to their properties, and that includes mold remediation. However, landlords are also very good at getting around laws. For instance, let’s say you find what you believe is mold in your rental. You call your landlord and tell them about your issue. They are surprisingly proactive and agree to have your space tested for mold. They get the results back and tell you that you do not, in fact, have a mold problem. And then they’re done.

Here’s the thing. Even if the test results come back and say that there is mold in your home, they are not required to share the results with you. They could very well lie to you and you would have no way of knowing. However, if you pay for a mold inspection yourself, you are the person who gets the results. That puts the power in your hands, where it should be. You can take those results to your doctor and to a lawyer. You will be able to ensure that your home is safe and healthy.
