Mold

  • Mold: Mold is a part of the natural environment that reproduces by means of tiny spores. These spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through outdoor and indoor air they break down and feed on organic matter in the environment. Mold may begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet. 
  • Reducing moisture and proper housekeeping significantly reduces the chance of mold growth. The goal is to minimize the amount of mold to the extent possible. 
  • In order to maintain a quality of living environment for all residents, it is important to work together to minimize the occurrence and growth of mold in apartments. To reduce the possibility of mold:
  • Follow this link https://epa.gov/indoor-air-quality-iaq/heating-ventilation-and-air-conditioning-text-modules-indoor-air-quality#f22  to find out recommended temperatures inside your home during different seasons. You will also find info on relative humidity. Relative humidity is important to climate growth of microorganisms such as mold and dust mites. To control microorganisms, it is best to keep the relative humidity below 60% (to control mold) and 50% (to control dust mites) at all times, including unoccupied hours. High relative humidity can foster proliferation of mold and dust mites. 
  • Keep the premises clean, particularly the kitchen and bathroom, by regularly dusting, vacuuming and mopping. A household cleaner should be used to clean hard surfaces. 
  • Remove any moldy or rotten food.
  • Remove garbage regularly.

  • Hang shower curtain inside tub when showering.
  • Wipe down bathroom walls and fixtures after bathing or showering.
  • Wipe down visible signs of moisture.
  • Wipe down windowsills if moisture is present.
  • Water all indoor plants in sink or tub and allow to drain well before putting back iin place or water indoor plants outdoors. 

If there is any visible mold on non-porous surfaces such as ceramic tile, Formica, vinyl flooring, metal or plastic, you should: 

  • Clean the areas with soap (or detergent) and a small amount of water and let the surface dry.
  • Within 24 hours apply a non-staining cleaner such as Lysol Disinfectant, Pine Sol Disinfectant (original pine scented), Tilex Mildew Remover, or Clorox Cleanup. Note that some household cleaning products contain bleach and may cause staining. 
  • If mold reappears, repeat the process. 
  • If mold is due to an ongoing leak or ongoing moisture problem, contact the management office. 
  • You must report in writing to Lessor:
    • Water leak, excessive moisture or standing water inside the apartment, storage area or garage. 
    • Water leak, excessive moisture or standing water in any community common area.

We, as Lessor, do not make any representations or warranties regarding the existence or development or molds or micro-toxins.

We, as Lessor and/or Agent, reserve the right to terminate the tenancy and you, as Resident, agree to vacate the premises in the event we, as Lessor and/or Agent, in our sole judgement, feel that either (1) there is mold or mildew present in the dwelling unit which may pose a safety or health hazard to you or other persons and/or (2) your actions or inactions are causing a condition which is conductive to mold growth.

Safety/Security

We, as Lessor and/or Agent, do not make any representation or warranty, either expressed or implied, regarding your safety or the safety of your personal property, against the criminal actions of other residents or third parties. 

The responsibility for protecting yourself, your family and your property as well as your invited guests from acts of crime is the sole responsibility of you and law enforcement agencies. 

For apartments equipped with an instruction alarm, you will be responsible for all fines, penalties and other charges resulting from or attributed to the alarm, including false alarm charges. Management is not obligated to respond to any signal from an intrusion alarm system. It is your responsibility to promptly notify management in writing, of any problem, defect, malfunction or failure door locks, window latches, instruction alarms and other security related devices.

If security systems, security devices or walk through services are employed at this community, no representation is being made that they will be effective to prevent injury, theft or vandalism. Such personnel, if provided, cannot physically be every place a every moment. Usually, such personnel are unarmed independent contractors and have no authority under the law to restrain or arrest criminals than the ordinary citizen. 

It is fact that no security system, courtesy patrol or electronic security device can guarantee protection against crime. Even elaborate security systems are subject to mechanical malfunction, tampering, human error or personal absenteeism, and can be defeated or avoided by clever criminals. Always proceed on the assumption that no security systems exist. The best safety measures are those precautions that can be performed as a matter of common sense and habit. 

Therefore, we do not warrant that any security systems, security device or services employed at the community will discourage or prevent breaches of security, intrusions, thefts or incidents of violent crime. 

Further, we reserve the right to reduce, modify or eliminate any security systems, security devices (other than those statutorily required) at any time; and you agree that such action shall not be a breach of any obligations or warranty on the part of management. 

You, as resident, agree to release and hold harmless owner and management from any claims arising out of criminal acts of other residents and third parties. You also agree that owner and management shall not be liable to you based upon any claim that security was not provided except management’s compliance with the state statues. 

The forgoing shall also be binding upon your heirs, successors and assigns.

Here are some reminders to protect yourself:

  • Lock the dead bolt on your door at all times whether home or away
  • Keep your vehicle locked at all times
  • Do not leave valuable items in your car
  • Close and lock your windows and patio door when your’re away. Do not leave your home unattended with window or doors open
