So the mold situation might be greatly improved. After Frugal Father's usual clean-up job, he painted over the MANY areas with anti-fungal paint. Fingers and various limbs crossed.
We discovered where the water from under the kitchen units was coming from - a slow leak under the sink. Can't move the sink unit so getting a plumber round. The water was slowly trickling underneath and we had to mop up at least twice a day. Both of us almost slipped a few times. Plumber says he'll be here tomorrow.
Now, the baaaaaad water problem. Seems we have a leak originating from the bathroom. We don't know whether it's from under the bathtub/shower, which has tons of water under there, or from another leaky pipe. But wherever it's coming from it first caused mold, now it's causing serious problems, possibly even structural. yikes.
The floor boards in the little room we use to store our boxes of possessions, and FF's bedroom have come right up. As if water is filling up underneath. The downstairs neighbour says there is water mark on her ceiling. So FF is letting the 'caretakers' (relatives of the owners back in Australia) know. The main floor is made from concrete, and we all know that this can wear with tons of water.
Either they'll ignore it - which is the usual way around here, but this is too serious we think - or they will do something about it. If the latter, we'll have to move out. Yep, boo.
We're lucky to have expat friends already on the look out for us. There may be two possible temporary accommodations available.
And then the rain, hasn't really stopped in days....
We are most definitely elementally out of balance!
