BUSHWICK - A couple in Bushwick says mold is taking over their bathroom walls.

The couple says the second-floor bathroom of their Hope Gardens Houses apartment is covered in mold.

They say they fear for their health because they are expecting a baby.

The couple says repair crews from the New York City Housing Authority came to look at the mess, but there has been no permanent solution.  

News 12 Brooklyn reached out to NYCHA, which said it regrets the inconvenience and sent a repair crew to the home Saturday.

The agency said it has reset the toilet bowl and will soon repair the ceiling. NYCHA also said it takes the issue of mold very seriously.
