The mother, who suffers from depression and suicidal thoughts, says her mental health is “back to square one” due to the problem, and she is desperate for Newham City Council to relocate her.
She says that the house is infested with mice and that she is constantly picking droppings off the floor.
Jodia-Ann told the Sun Online: “The mold is in my nine-year-old son’s closet. It’s on his clothes. It’s growing up the walls. I’ve developed eczema on my arms because of it.”
“I have to remove her stuff from the walls because mold is growing, and I have to check the furniture for black mold.
“The only place it’s not is in my bedroom – my son sleeps there with me.
“I had to throw away his shoes, jackets, boxers, vests. I literally had to throw all his toys away. I’m constantly cleaning up mouse poop.”
“I want to move to another place. It is not appropriate to live here with my mental health conditions.”
Jodia-Ann said she was in therapy and feeling better, but she added: “Now I’m back where I started. I have depression and suicidal thoughts. It’s all connected.”
“It’s giving me suicidal thoughts. It was getting better, they were gone. But now they’re back. I’ve never lived in a place where I have to clean up this kind of mess.”
The city council intervened to clean the mold from the walls, but in two weeks it appeared again.
It is understood that the council has tried to enter the property to solve the problems, but they have not been able to gain access.
Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for Housing Services at Westminster City Council, said: “We have been in close contact with Ms Irving and the property management company regarding any issues raised.
“Contractors visited the property this week and found it to be in reasonable condition.
“Unfortunately, condensation and mold are very common in all properties and can cause problems inside the house during this time of year.
“To help prevent condensation buildup, a new fan was installed in the bathroom earlier in the month.
“In addition, all of the mouse holes were filled and no further pest control issues have been reported since a visit in December.
“Demand for housing in Westminster
“Demand for housing in Westminster, as seen throughout London, far outstrips supply.
“Although we do our best to accommodate people in the city, we have to locate homes in other boroughs, again like most central London boroughs. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that the quality of the high level sea accommodation”. .
“We will continue to be in contact with Ms. Irving and will do everything we can to support her.”
