    Hello everyone. A few years back (2016) I purchased a house in a gated community in Pennsylvania. At purchase, no one told me anything was wrong. We had an inspector come check the property, there were no warnings of anything forth coming. Recently, the water heater in my house broke. The entire first floor was flooded. Right after, once we finally got all the water out, we had an inspector come back and he told us that the first floor is basically crawling with mold, and it will cost us 1000 s of dollars to fix. If we don t fix the problem in the next year or 2, the first floor will basically cave on itself. Now, even if we got the water heater replaced, this would not have changed the mold situation. My question is, should we be the ones held accountable for the mold situation in the first floor? I do not intend to resell this house with this horrible mold situation to other tenants, this is a serious hazard. But we don t have the money to get it replaced. My question is, since this problem wasnt disclosed to us and we basically signed my name to the house under false pretenses, is there anything I can do to get this taken care of by either the previous owner or the owner of the gated community? We would sew if we have to. Thank you for reading.

  • How am I suppose to wash my rain gear if it says not to?

    I just bought some rain gear for a job I'm starting in a few days. They require us to wash our rain gear every day. Well, there is a tag on my rain gear that says "do not wash, hand wash, do not drive clean or use bleach. How the heck am I suppose to wash it?

The reason they want us to wash it every day is because it is a sea food processing plant, and they don't want bacteria getting all over the place I guess.

  • What does a room without a roof feel like?

    Best answer: It's bad. Leave the lid off the milk and it goes sour. Leave the ragtop off a convertible and you'll get soaked. Leave the **** off a girl and you have something not attractive either. Point is, things need tops. Pherrel didn't think that one through at all.

  • How exactly does a fire alarm system activate for a school or dormitory?

    Best answer: As others have said, various smoke sensors in sleeping areas, living areas and common areas, report to a control panel, which activates some or all of the alarms and strobes when smoke is detected. That automatic system is supplemented with "manual" pull stations, often near each exit on each floor, which will trigger the general evacuation alarm as well, at least for that floor, when someone activates that switch. There are also automatic water-flow sensors in the sprinkler pipes that activate the alarms when a temperature-sensitive sprinkler head opens near a fire. Other possible sensors include heat detectors where normal smoke, fumes or dust could trigger false alarms.

    In very large facilities, there may be a command center manned 24-hours a day, where a trained guard has access to the signals, if not also CCTV monitors, and may override false alarms or trigger alarms before the sensors do.

This dipped as well, in less time. They came out and replaced it, and now the same thing has happened too. I'm not sure what to do as I know if they replace it again the same thing will happen again. What bed would be better suited for my weight? Thank you

  • How can I keep animals from digging through my compost pile naturally?

    Without adding deterrent chemicals to it that might harm the surrounding tree roots or render the compost useless.

    Without adding deterrent chemicals to it that might harm the surrounding tree roots or render the compost useless. No matter how much dirt or sand I cover it up with, animals always find a way to get to it and end up scattering it all over the place, some of it even ends up on the neighbors property and the street. I am looking for an additive that's a natural organic animal deterrent, which won't kill surrounding trees or render the compost useless.

  • What can I do in spring to help the bees in my garden?

    We just moved into our first family home and the garden is in poor condition. I want to put some pots out (lots) with flowers and things that are good for helping the wild bees. What type of things give maximum impact for bees that are long lasting and will survive more than one summer? I am terrified of bees.

    My husband and I are searching for a home. We found the perfect one; however, there are two dips in the floor. One was right inside the front door and the other was on the second floor right before the doorway leading to the balcony. He is sure it means foundation issues, and he doesn't want to spend money on an inspector. But my heart has been set on this house, so I was wondering if dips always mean major issues with the house.
