I bought some baking soda to use with the vacume, as well as some vacume
free foam stuff that you leave on.
I am afraid I will just mask the smell/mold.
Any ideas on which to do first?
The carpet itself is dry, but all the edges and spaces around walls are wet,
should I wait til they are dry too, before doing anything?

I live in a very small town, we do not have a health department.
Maybe I will call town hall tomorrow and see if they know of the local
I am afraid to do anything to piss the landlords off, i dont want to be
evicted, or have my rent raised or something.
i have heard too many horror stories about this sort of thing, and the laws
favour landlords, not tenants.
i wish there was a free service that could come, tell me in writing there is
mold, then i could go to the landlord, but they are totally downplaying
Well, then if you don't want to have the landlord take care of the problem
and you can't take care of it, you have reached a dead-end. If you had
several inches of water in the apartment there is no way that it will dry
out and be a satisfactory place to live. I would be looking for another
apartment, but I'm sure you will respond with a reason you can't or won't.
This thread has reminded me that I misplaced my can of Troll-Be-Gone.
