I discovered a few days ago when I cleaned the apartment that there were a lot of mold in the window on top floor and lower floor. Then I had my waistbelt (made of skin) completely eaten up by mold. And now yesterday when I was going to pack my things my suitcase (expensive Samsonite), a computer bag on wheels and a rucksack also had mold on them, so I have to throw all these. And this morning my leather shoes also had mold on them.
So today I bought new suitcase and 2 other bags for 15,500 TWD.
The landlord refuses to pay for this, says noone else has complained (but a few weeks ago, I saw a sofa in the corridor, same brand as the sofa in my apartment, which has mold on it, so I suppose some other tenant had complained about mold).

And then yesterday when I was going to pack my things was when I saw my suitcase and 2 bags were eaten up by mold. And they put a mobile air circulator in the corridor about a week ago (didn't have it earlier). So I suspect someone else (or several) have had the same issues as I, especially when this sofa was put out in the corridor for a few days for removal.
