‘I've battled mould in my home for two years fear for my kids – the house is absolutely covered'

‘I’ve battled mould in my home for two years fear for my kids – the house is absolutely covered’

A MUM has been battling mould in her home for two years and fears her kids could get long-term health problems as a result.

The mum – who wishes not to be identified – lives in the mould-infested home with her five-year-old son and baby daughter in Hull.

She first raised the issue with her landlords, Preston Road Women's Centre – which operates as Winner Trading ltd – back in January 2020 but is still waiting for the gunk to be removed.

The property is in such disrepair that Hull City Council has threated the landlords with an enforcement action if repairs aren't made soon.

The woman's partner – who does not live at the property but also wishes not to be named – told Hull Live: “The house is absolutely covered in damp and mould, that's the worst thing about it.

“It's in the bathroom, both bedrooms and the living room. Every single wall in the front, living room has it.

“It's damaged furniture and even damaged a TV unit. My partner messages quite often and gets blanked.”

He claimed the landlords have ignored her pleas and at one stage, told her to “wipe” the mould down – which led to it coming back.

The distraught mum recently applied for council accommodation to escape her mouldy hell of a home but has had no successes.

She now fears her kids could receive long-term health problems as a result of being exposed to the toxic substance for so long.

The woman's partner said Hull City Council's environmental health team had already visited twice and were set to come back this month.

They issued Winner Trading Ltd with repair recommendations after their last visit in November but “nothing's been done”, he claimed.

A Hull City Council spokeswoman said: “The council inspected the property in July and identified a schedule of work required by the landlord, Winner Trading Ltd, to improve the accommodation.

“A further visit recently showed that improvements were underway but a number of the scheduled items identified in the previous visit remained unaddressed, therefore a further visit has been arranged for later this month.

“If the work hasn’t been completed, the council will take appropriate formal enforcement action under the Housing Act 2004.”

The Sun Online has contacted Preston Road Women's Centre for comment.
