On December 3, 2021, Elena tweeted the first TikTok about the mould problem, with the description, ‘TIK TOK PLEASE HELP WE DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO we’re just broke college students.’ A voice-over narrates how she and her flatmates had developed headaches out of nowhere. They decided to acquire a self-testing kit on the internet and test the brown-green stuff that had settled in their vent after being encouraged by some mould TikToks.
The students were taken aback by the reports and called their landlord, who informed them that it was all a lie. The landlord then fixed the vent and used Lysol to clean it. After the results, girls asked a mould inspection from laandlord. The landlord agreed, but only on the condition that Elena and the other tenants pay the inspection fee if the results are negative.
“The cost is $249, and if mould is discovered, I will handle everything. You will be responsible for the expenses if they do not find anything.”
Elena later updated through her post that the mould inspector had cleaned the house of the allegations and that the girls had decided to have independent testing done. Pithomyces, Penicillium, and Aspergillus were discovered in the sample by their test. Aspergillus is a frequent allergy, while Penicillium is a moderately poisonous fungus.
