We are a mold remediation company out of St. Louis, MO. We've seen this situation many times. Our suggestion is to #1, talk to your landlord about the possible problem. There is a good chance this is simply mildew, and not mold. However, if it is indeed mold, your health is at risk, and by law, mold must be remediated or the space can be deemed uninhabitable. Call your local mold remediation company, and have them come out. Most will come out and give a free consult. However, do keep your landlord in the loop with everything, as the only way to determine if mold is present is by a mold/air test, which can range between $200-$500. Good luck!

Denise, reputable companies will charge you a small fee to come out and do a mold test which is like a swab. If it is positive, it will come off the cost of the removal. Yes, insurance typically will cover it, and a good company will work with you on the cost if your deductible is high. check out www.bioclean911.com. Thanks!
