The Question Club
So, the other day I went to use the storage closet in my apartment. It connects to the livingroom, but, I rarely go in there because it's where I keep all my big plastic moving bins and books that I couldn't really find room for.|
Well, what do you know, I open the door and the ceiling is covered in black mold. My books are soaked in smelly water and covered in the mold as well. I spent the next few hours throwing out most of my books and soaking/cleaning the plastic bins I had in there. It was...well, the bins had this putrid water in most of them. Very foul smelling.
Anyway, I e-mailed my landlord. Twice. No response. This was a few days ago. I closed the closet back up and got everything I need to get out of there (anything that was salvageable). Just being in there for as long as I was, I felt ill. I live in Atlanta, GA in an apartment building run by a landlord. Pictures under the cut. They're pretty gross, but, I just wanted to give you an idea of what I was dealing with.
If my landlord does not get back to me, any idea what the next step should be? Are there people I can bring this up to? I'm not looking for any compensation for losing 75% of my books (though that really sucked), I just don't know how to take this to a higher level.
Edit: There's no corporate to call. It's literally one guy and one secretary.
