Mold Issues Worry Military Family

Military families tell WOWT 6 News there's a growing problem inside base homes. One family worries it could cause health issues.

Charles and Sara Rosemeyer are a military family living in base housing. But after moving in they started noticing something growing-- mold.

Charles began noticing spores growing in his garage, stretching across about two feet of the ceiling.

"What concerns us about the house is that the kids are continually getting sick," Charles said.

They showed us a letter from the doctor. Without seeing the property, their family doctor is suspicious that mold could be contributing factor to their kids health issues.

Base housing is run by a private company called Rising View. The Rosemeyer family says when they found the mold they immediately reported it.

"Finally after going back and forth for about a week, they finally removed the mold in the garage," Charles said.

But the family says their kids keep getting sick and now they want two things.

"We would like them to hire a third party mold company to come in, and do an air quality test, and actually inspect inside the walls to see if there is mold," Charles said.

And they want out.

"I think the lease needs to be either broken, or we need to find the financial means to remove the children from the home," Sara said.

But right now -- the Rosemeyers say Rising View won't grant either.

WOWT 6 News reached out to Rising View, and owners say they cannot comment on this case due to the privacy of residents.
