Knox Box apartments equals Box of Mold, Future Lawsuit

A property, the Knox Box Apartments, managed by Gorman Management had a published mold count of over 3000 inside.

Now we don’t know if someone stirred something up before they took measurements, but I’m here to say–that’s a lot of mold.

Ailing residents moved to hotel rooms, but in a mid March email, the property manager was quoted saying the apartment was habitable and “levels detected are considered normal fungal ecology.”

It’s not normal when mold counts outside are 300. A resident says management put in air purifiers to change the results of the test, and could not get copies of the report. The residents, who got their own inspections done, had reports saying that the apartment was not safe.

However the city was notified.The city ordered management to remove the mold in 30 days or risk being shut down. This occurred in College Park. Residents are moving forward with plans to go to The Johns Hopkins Hospital to receive diagnostic testing and possibly sue the management company.

If you’re in California, you might want to give us a call and see about getting an assessment from Byebyemold.
