We broke a lease because of mold and a very similar situation when my oldest was a baby. The landlord tried to clean it with bleach and then tell us it was fine, but we were finding it up the walls and under the beds.... there was obviously a structural problem. If the landlord doesn't take it seriously I would just leave no matter what the reprocussions are. It was a serious problem for the whole families health and really affected our immune systems on a whole. Our landlord gave us 24 hours to move and have carpets cleaned and she let us out of our lease. She rented it out right away. I tried to contact the health board because of it , but they couldn't come once I started packing. It could have saved some unsuspecting tenant from renting the place. So legally, having an inspection could help your case if you wan't to break the lease.
