Residents complaining of mold infested apartments in West Price Hill

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Residents in Wyoming Crossing Apartments claim mold is taking over their homes. One mother claims It's gotten so bad that she can't stay in her apartment until the problem is fixed.

Alicia Medeiros has been living at Wyoming Crossing Apartments for nearly nine months, and for the past eight months tells us she's been dealing with black mold.

"It's very frustrating. I've gone to them damn near everyday to get this situation fixed and they haven't fixed anything," she said.

The smell of mold hits your before you walk through the door. Then once inside you see it covering the walls and the floors. It's so thick it looks like foam on the carpet. She said when it rains water just pours through her walls.

"When it rains outside it rains inside too. Through the windows the walls anywhere it can come in it comes in," Medeiros said.

She had the scare of a lifetime after her she said her daughter was hurt while standing on the soggy carpet.

"She was turning of f the lamp and the lamp was all metal. The floor was all wet at the time so went to turn it off it electrocuted her," Medeiros said.

She said she's complained to management multiple times. They said they will fix the problem, but she said they never show up. She said the mold has been making her sick along with her two daughters. "

Since we've been staying here we just slept the whole time. I ain't never slept that much in my life, so we had to leave," Medeiros said.

Her children are now staying with her parents until the problems are fixed.
Sandra Davis lives right above Medeiros . She moved in after her unit in another building was having mold issues.

"It was so bad it was growing on my furniture," Davis said.

The rent is $655 a month. While, many of the residents are on a fixed income they said they shouldn't be forced to live in a slum.

"My kids are here and I'm reaching out for help for me and everybody else in the apartments. We need help. We need this fixed. We need out of here," said Davis.

FOX19 NOW reached out to the management at the Wyoming Crossing Apartments several times. They have not returned any of our calls.
