SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WOIO) -Alice Little has lived in her apartment for 10 years. Just a few months ago, she discovered what she described as mold in her bedroom closet.
“I kept asking my sister, don’t you feel that,” Little said.
Little called her apartment management who sent a maintenance crew who spot cleaned the wall and even cut out some of the drywall.
But not even 2 weeks later other spots appeared. So the group came out and eliminated them.
Little then used his own money to hire a mold inspector.
According to the report, all rooms in Little’s house were to a good standard, except for her bedroom. The inspector gave her documents showing that the mold levels were so high that she should not be in the room.
“I can still smell mold or something in my room, I have to wear a mask to get in there,” Little said.
Little sent the apartment team a letter showing his findings, but nothing was done.
So she called the 19 News Troubleshooter team to help her.
“I paid my rent in full and I’ve been sleeping on my couch for two months,” Little said. “I have health problems where I have to be in my bed”.
Now Little is moving out. But before she leaves, she wants to make sure the next person to live here is safe.
So we called the apartments head office and, after explaining in detail why we called, we were sent to someone’s voicemail. To be fair, we also emailed.
“I’m not calling them anymore, I’m getting out of here,” Little said.
We received a call from the president of the company. Telling us that he would personally look into the problem tomorrow morning and call us back.
