Flooded with Cockroaches

May 14, 2013 by Admin

South LA residents at 39th St. fight off cockroaches everyday. There are two buildings across from each other, yet both suffer from the same unhealthy conditions. Apart from the cockroaches, they all have mold in their bathroom. Tenants report that every two years, their mold is cleaned off, but it always comes back worse. Repairs are never done to a full extent, they only consist of temporary solutions. Long term residents like Emilia have confronted the harshest problems as their kitchen electronics continue to break down due to the cockroach infestation. She has been living at the complex for 12 years and says that she has continuously made complaints that go unsolved.
