I've notified my landlord, but he's not quite sure what the problem is or who can solve it. This probably isn't a very complex problem, but we live in Los Angeles and must be just about the only people in this desert with this problem.
The building was probably built in the twenties; the windows were all recently replaced (mid-90s). We regularly have morning condensation on the windows. The wall that runs the length of our apartment faces north.
I wash the walls every so often with a bleach solution, but I can't keep up with it; frankly, I'm looking for a more permanent solution. My roommate is from England and he says there are "damp proofing" services available there, but there are none listed in our yellow pages.
Who would be the best person to consult for a permanent solution to this problem? What does my landlord need to do?
