Sample of Brown Mold Or Something in My Kitchen Cupboards That Is Hard To Get Rid Of !
So here is an image from my kitchen cupboards with the brown mold that I have to deal with in my apartment. I discovered it after emptying my kitchen cupboards for the exterminator from getting the scattered cockroach, only four in my apartment since April 2007 since I moved in. After the exterminator was through and leaving his poison in for a bit, I took to scrapping, sanding and bleaching my cupboards before going to paint them. The horizontal brown spot is where there was a elongated hole from separation of the cupboard wood, I figured the cockroaches where coming in here so I took some drywall compound with polyfila added and filled the crack over the brown moulded wood in the cupboard joint. The brown mould entered the moist drywall compound and infected it. Bleach will not even kill it and take it out. The mould can be seen in the vertical cupboard joint as well in the image, it is the brown line in the corner which was plastered over as well with my drywall mix. As a building technician I know that at times one has to take down a wall to get at a cockroach nest for the exterminator. I am figuring there are cockroach nests in the walls in this building, ad their excretement is damaging the wood and causing this mould. I discovered that this brown mould was oozing out of my kitchen light fixture as well, for it was all over the ceiling, so I took down the light fixture to investigate. I discovered it was tick in the electrical box and covering the wiring as well. So I went out and bought a degreaser from Canadian Tire store and some draft seal to plug the holes in the electrical outlet to stop the brown mould from coming in and spreading over my kitchen ceiling and everywhere else through apartment air currents. I was going nuts cleaning brown off my computer key board, I am a smoker which leaves a brown residue on furniture, but not to the degree of having brown mould coming into the apartment and covering everything. To clean up my key board I bought baby wipes which did an excellent job. Since plugging the holes in my kitchen light fixture and cleaning the brown off the ceiling around the fixture, it has stayed clean. My landlord is a pain in the butt over this, the building was taken over by new owners and the building manager went to the police over me leaving messages on his telephone answering machine. After about two months with my kitchen cupboards not getting done, partly with me in hospital for two months, I finally got cheaper latex paint instead of more expensive kitchen and bathroom paint for my cupboards. Get accused of leaving racist slurs on his answering machine and once once threatened with being sued over it, I took total abuse from the building manager getting paint for my kitchen cupboards. Why because I mentioned his creed because I have had run ins with other people from his country of origin when dealing with buildings! Police know this building and I once saw the Bailiff going around handing out a mitt full of Court orders. I have heard the police in the building with warning people not to come into my apartment when I am not home, along with people having lock picking tools like a locksmith. One time I went to the corner store and when I came home I smelt a strong oder of paint thinner in my apartment. I when looking for where it was coming from and found paint thinner all over my art studio. I had to open the window and turn on the bathroom fan and vent the apartment. They will not even sell me laundry chips, I have phoned three times and they say they have none, wait until tomorrow and paid with my disability pension cheque, do I get laundry chips when I call for them? Until later, Doctor Goober signing off for now.
