glued outdoor carpet on concrete in apartment is oozing


I think it is decomposing from dampness. I have had a problem with floors being damp, yard is not graded right, after a rain it pools. I've had mold in the bath vanity (pressed wood) been here in a new HUD apt for 21 mo. was told Formaldyhyde is used as water proofing, so I am breathing this in. Apt is on a 4" slab w/4" of rock under that.

Sounds like you need to move.
There is no simple cheap, quick fix for this one.

I think you are right. If the latex adhesive is getting wet, it can ooze. You need to move.
