A terrified mother made a desperate plea after discovering mushrooms in her rental home.

In a picture posted online by the woman, a thin mushroom can be seen sticking through her through the opening between the windowsill.
The woman said it was not the first time she had found fungi had contaminated the property.
& # 39; About six weeks ago I found a mushroom growing in our laundry & # 39 ;, she wrote.
She said she was worried because her family had been in the house for 12 months and had just signed a new 12-month lease.
& # 39; I have probably contacted the property about five or six times, and I am told every time I call the property manager & # 39; is not in & # 39; or & # 39; unavailable & # 39 ;, she said.
& # 39; The property is aware of the problem and I have sent photos, but I have not heard back. & # 39;
& # 39; What can I do from now on? I don't even know how to proceed. & # 39;
A similar discovery was made early this year in a house in Sydney. One's mother was urged to leave her rental apartment after she had found mushrooms from a door frame.

The woman said she was shocked & # 39; when she first found the fungi.
One social media user warned the mushrooms the family & # 39; so sick & # 39; could make.
& # 39; This happened in our house and we had to completely re-frame the rotated parts of the wall & # 39 ;, another said.
Alarmed social media users begged her to evacuate the apartment and said the situation was & # 39; extremely dangerous & # 39; and & # 39; toxic & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; Move, get out of lease. That goes into your furniture, clothing and body & # 39 ;, someone wrote.
While others advised the woman to contact the Residential Tenancies Authority about the problem.
Mold can grow in damp, dark and poorly ventilated areas of the house, such as bathrooms or basement rooms, according to the services of the New South Wales Family and the community.
The service says that the most effective way to prevent mold is to leave fresh air and light in the house.
It also mentions regular cleaning and controlling the amount of moisture in a home will help to stop the problem.
