Who is responsible for mold damage to a tenant's possessions?

Question Details:

My tenant who, is due to move out in 3 weeks, has just informed me that there is a somewhat severe mold problem in one of the unoccupied bedrooms. He does not want me to enter the house to even assess the damage pre-move, but the issue is apparently severe enough that he has removed all of the furniture except for a bed that he considers "a total loss", and taped off the room with plastic. I don't want to wait and am concerned that if I do, the problem will become worse. Also, who is responsible financially for the damage? I am also worried that he will expect me to pay for his bed, when he never alerted me to any issue. I just purchased the house 6 months ago, they have been renting for 1 1/2 years.
