Hidden Room Contains Toxic Mold

Hidden Room Contains Toxic Mold

When Jason and Kerri Brown found a secret room in their new home, what they found inside was nothing short of a nightmare.

“This can’t be happening. This can’t be true. It terrified me,” says Kerri Brown after finding a note behind a bookcase in their home telling them that the house contained toxic mold.

Revealing Note

When the Browns purchased the old mill house on Whitten Street in Greenville, S.C., they thought it was a perfect home to raise a family, until the fateful day when they discovered the truth behind the home.

The note, which was written by the previous owners of the house, revealed to the couple that the home was infested with toxic mold.

When Jason Brown hired a company to inspect the home they discovered that the house contained elevated-levels of several types of mold including Aspergillus, Basidiospores and Chaetomiu.

“On a scale of one to 10, with 10 being the worst, I would probably give this a seven,” explained Steve Hendrix from Hendrix Consulting Engineers.

Family Files Lawsuit

The Browns immediately filed a lawsuit against Century 21, Flynn & Youngblood and Realtor Sue Bakx.

They claim that the realtor has knowledge of the mold problem when they were sold the house.

Previous Owner Saves Lives

The writer of the note, George Leventis says that he had no intention of causing the Browns any harm.

“I didn’t mean to scare the Browns,” explains Leventis. “If I didn’t write it, it would easily happen again.”
