Air Allergen & Mold Testing Tampa

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — As excited as tenant David Sawyer and his roommates were in moving into a Saint Petersburg rental home last summer, their air conditioner unit suddenly stopped working.

"We immediately contacted them. They took a week to kind of get back and it was the middle of July so the house was getting to one hundred plus degrees,” Sawyer said.

Invitation Homes, the property management company, eventually fixed the AC and plumbing problems that Sawyer says pushed raw sewage up into his shower.

But soon after, Sawyer says he got sick.

"I had massive headaches. I had constant drainage from my nose, nose bleeds," he said. "I was going through a box a day of tissues."

A private inspector that Sawyer hired documented toxic black mold in his bathroom and urged him to leave their home on 74th Avenue Northeast immediately.

He says he contacted Invitation Homes repeatedly but it stalled on a proper mold remediation.

"It was a solid 20 days where we just didn't hear from anyone and we just decided to pack up and leave,” Sawyer said.
