Description

KWCH-TV reports on moldy homes in Sedgwick County. Mold poses significant risks to health, and is especially dangerous for children. The story reveals that the number of tenants' complaints about mold has been increasing in recent years, and that landlords have often been reluctant to fix the problems with leaky roofs and wet walls. Even when tenants force landlords to clean up the mold, this is not always done the right way. As a result, microscopic spores remain in the apartments, settle into the furniture or spread throughout the residences from leaky heating and air systems.
