I live in a condo. My neighbor's washing machine leaked and the water ran into the wall separating our condos. The water ran into my closet and now I have a powdery green meldew on my carpet and my shoes stuck to the carpeting. My neighbor says I am ripping him off when I tell him of the damage. I am asking him to replace the carpet, reimburse me for the ten pairs of shoes, and I would also like to know if there is any more water between the condos. Perhaps spores have built up. So I would like to have this looked into. Do you think I'm asking my neighbor for too much. He says his premium will go up and things of that nature. I would like to convince him of the severity of the problem. Could you please tell me how bad meldew or mold is to a person who is highly allergic to things.
