Residents Claim Maryland Apartment Complex Plagued by Mold and Raw Sewage

Sussex Environmental Health Consultants provide indoor air quality (IAQ) and environmental investigations to ensure properties are safe.

PRLog - Oct. 8, 2012 - PEORIA, Ariz. -- Last month, the Baltimore Sun published a story about residents’ complaints of living conditions at Perrywood Garden Apartments.  The apartments, located in Perryman, Maryland, provide low-income living accommodations at the 184 unit complex.

According to the article, residents have complained about flooding, leaking sewage, bats, mold, an unsanitary pool, and other health concerns.  The complex was purchased by new owners last March and currently has a new management team.  Representatives from the management company were present last month for a meeting with the Bush River Community Council to discuss the residents’ concerns.

When buildings are purchased that have ongoing concerns over indoor or outdoor environmental issues a professional environmental consulting firm is often contracted to identify and report on the conditions.  One of the leading companies in the Mid-Atlantic region that provides these types of services is Sussex Environmental Health Consultants (SEHC).

“When new owners are dealing with problems such as mold and sewage contamination, that can be a real health concern, it is usually a good idea for a thorough inspection of the property to be undertaken,” reported Susan White, Ph.D., CMC, from Sussex Environmental Health Consultants.  “Mold contamination can lead to allergies, asthma attacks and even fungal infections in some people.  Bat droppings can expose people to Histoplasma capsulatum which causes a serious disease known as histoplasmosis.  Raw sewage can host an array of bacterial and fungal pathogens, not to mention viruses and parasites.  At SEHC we provide building owners with a complete environmental inspection that can identify these types of risks.”

SEHC recently sponsored an educational video about the health effects of mold exposure that can be seen at: http://youtu.be/DbKoonHwvHM
