Hi

Living in the Greens & Views and have lately been feeling like the indoor humidity levels have increased a lot - feeling like a damp-ish feeling with clothes etc. Found mildew on certain clothing, shoes and wooden frames too.

Got a hygrometer to read the levels and it hovers in the 65 to 75 RH (relative humidity) range -

Wondering if someone has experienced this in Greens & Views too or generally and what could be the reason for it to happen suddenly - been in this apartment since 8 months and was in another apartment in same community for over 2 yrs - never experienced this before.

Any suggestions for resolving other than getting a dehumidifier as this is not addressing the root cause of the issue.

Thanks in advance

Oz

Thanks - have scheduled a cleaning with Saniservice - any recommendations or tips on what I should tell them to focus on or pay attention to? Appreciate the help

With doing a deep clean hopefully they'll apply fungicides to all areas where they find mildew as the spores are great for allergy sufferers

Post deep cleaning and disinfection of the ac units they fog the entire apartment to make sure it reaches all areas to kill the spores ..

Have you had a humidity issue resolved through ac duct cleaning before ??

The greens has been and will always be a S&%#T hole, move out ASAP!
That depends on which building. There a lots of places here I would regard as holes before even thinking about Greens...

You should know by now that it's not financially clever to move out mid contract.
