Mold in my apartment

In the region where I live, the humidity levels can be astronomical year round.

One thing that I recently learned is that the humidity levels near the beach are much higher than those in town.

The other day, as I was getting dressed for work, I noticed there was a black spot in the top left corner of my closet. As I did some more investigating, I found more black mold spots. I was not sure if this was an urgent matter, but when I contacted my landlord, she told me that the mold could make me very sick. I was running late that morning, so I gave my landlord permission to enter the house and do whatever needs to be done. She informed me that she would be bringing a mold specialist into the house to remove the mold from the walls. Around my lunch break, I got a call from my landlord. She assured me that the mold situation was taken care of and that I would be safe from the effects that mold could potentially cause. I was also informed that she would be adding a dehumidifier to my bedroom. The way the dehumidifier works is simple. The dehumidifier takes the air in the room and circulates through a unit that removes the moisture from the air. The reason the mold was growing in the closet was due to the moisture in the air. Like I mentioned earlier, moisture in the air is extremely high near the beach and my house is only three blocks from the beach.
