Contact Your Landlord Immediately
If you find black mold anywhere in your apartment, it is up to you to notify your landlord immediately. Once they are aware of the situation, it is up to them to take the appropriate action to have the mold removed and also to prevent it from coming back. This process can take several days which means you may be required to get a hotel room while they work.
