After moving into my apartment last year I became sick,really sick and I just found out that if all my windows are not open 24/7 there will be at least 1,599+ ppm of carbon dioxide in my apartment which suggest that there's no air circulation or maybe there's something else wrong in my apartment.Someone from the Health Department came to inspect the apartment and offered no other explanation for the high concentration of CO2 and did I mentioned that 2 windows were already open ?Has anyone heard of something like this ? :shock:

Good to know you're pursuing the idea of checking whether your apartment is a safe environment to live in. Sorry, I do not know anything about this pecularity. What about carbon monoxide? That would be really dangerous and suggest something is amiss. [double post - CF was quicker]

Don't you have a balcony you can hang baskets in?

No such luxury as a balcony in ny.A balcony would have been nice. :)

I still say you could get houseplants for the oxygen and at night put them in the front by the door, or by an open window.

All I can do is ask you just how much crap you're willing to put up with? Terrible neighbors (who give your daughter nightmares), a really bad emotional/spiritual environment, now you're finding there's a really bad physical environment, and your landlord appears to be a complete tyrant. I don't get why you're so attached to that place, I really don't. It's not good for you, or for your family.

Oh,I'm not attached to it.I can't move because my lease does not expire until July 31 but I'm trying to do anything in my power to bring this creep to justice even if it means going public with this crap. :)

Ahhhh. Okay. That makes sense. I hope you're seriously investigating somewhere else to live. The place you're in now is toxic in every sense of the word. (I do feel for you on that, by the way; been there, done that.)
