Mushrooms in Baby's Room, landlord sucks

Constant complaints of moisture have led to mushrooms growing in our baby's room as well as an immediate attempt at move out without any effort made on the landlord's part. There hasn't even been anybody out to inspect or take us serious and they are threatening to hold our rent for lack of 20 day notice when doctor says to keep the kids out of the room. What can you do? Literally.

Clean it yourself, find out what's causing the moisture, and fix it.

You need to look up the landlord tenant act and read it. There are plenty of options, you just need to read through it and figure out what applies to your scenario. Tenant safety is well documented in the act.

I'm wondering why there's a water heater in your kid's room. Maybe DSHS can do something since it's causing a problem with a minor? Call an attorney?

Try contacting the Tenant's Union in Seattle for advice. The landlord tenant laws are still too broadly written and having a landlord straight outta the Middle Ages does indeed suck.
