I'm currently renting a house built in 1906. Both bathrooms have recently been remodeled and the toilets continually grow black mold inside the bowl and under the lids. The master bath is a large space with windows and great light, so I don't think it is a lighting/venting problem. There has been some white mold, mushrooms, etc. growing in the attic that the owner insists are old (but came and cleaned them with bleach) and the roof is in serious need of repair (I've had several leaks - into the dining room - and know it still leaks into the attic).
Short of moving (I'm looking to buy my first house - a Salt Box Victorian built in 1910), what do you recommend I do in the mean time? Thanks!
