Mildew

We have terrible mildew in our home. My daughters room, the wall by the window is pitch black. I have washed and painted but 2 months later it looks the same. With my sons room its the same the wall with the window. In the main room its not so bad but our sill and bottom part of the wall is black. Our bathroom is pretty bad too. I have terrible sinus i cant breath now for the last month. How bad is this mildew for the children? how do i get rid of it as the body corp has not replied to my phone call and emails regarding this situation

This is a very serious situation as this dampness and excessive amount of mould and fungal spore growth is very bad for the respiratory systems of your whole family. In the meantime clean off all the mould with a strong Jik solution in warm water. You will need to repeat the treatment after a month. You must find and stop the cause of all this dampness or you will need to find alternative accommodation.
