Sandra has some serious moisture problems in her rental home, and she wonders what to do about the resulting mold.

I live in an old trailer … There were big gaps [all] the way around the whole trailer, almost a quarter-inch. I have done my best to seal them up. Now I have a bad moisture problem in here.
I rent and live in Missouri. Landlords are not too quick at getting anything done; they just want the rent. The underpinning is terrible; it’s busted up in some spots.
I can’t afford to do much of anything that’s costly. Any suggestions? Mold is growing in my bedroom now bad. I’ve sprayed peroxide on it to kill it.

It appears you have a high percentage of humidity in the home. The best way to combat that is with a small room dehumidifier.
The best thing to spray on the existing mold or mildew is an antimicrobial.
We’ve had good results from Wet and Forget Indoor.
