One agency can be managing thousands of apartment units. This industry is on the path of growth, but the more people reside in apartments the more there will be cases of managers trying to educate their residents about taking care of their apartment unit. One of the biggest problem found in apartments whether it is in a multi family apartment unit or a student housing unit, is mold. Mold can grow in any perimeter where moisture is present.

Mold can be on a path of growth in apartments if not taken care of quickly and correctly. Once mold grows inside an apartment it becomes a a health risk for tenants. Tenants and landlords share the responsibility of controlling mold to create a healthy environment and ensure healthy living conditions.
