Flat Roofs Cause Toxic Mold in Arizona & California
Homes & Business Buildings, Warns Mold Expert Phillip Fry

Southwestern-style and Adobe brick-constructed residences in Arizona, California, and southern Nevada often have flat roofs, as do most commercial buildings in the same states. Unfortunately, flat roofs frequently lead to roof water leaks, resulting in water damage and toxic mold growth inside the roofs, ceilings, walls, and heating and cooling air conditioning equipment and ducts.

Certified Environmental Hygienist Phillip Fry explains that flat roofs frequently go bad because of one or more of the following reasons:

1. The high temperatures and the unforgiving sun in southwestern USA dry up or otherwise degrade roof materials causing roof cracks and leaks that enable rain to enter into the homes and business buildings and thus to drive toxic mold growth within the structure.

2. Rain water that falls onto flat roofs tends to collect into big puddles (“pooling”) that ultimately, over time, soak through and penetrate the underlying roof and into the building.

3.  The roof gutters that are supposed to take rain off the roof often get clogged with tree leaves and other debris and are thus not able to drain the roof.

4. Air conditioning units that are often installed on roofs in southwestern USA cause water intrusion into homes and commercial buildings because of clogged air conditioning condensation drain lines and cracks in the flashings around the air conditioning units, roof-mounted air ducts, plumbing vents, and other roof intrusions.

Property owners with flat roofs should have their roof inspected annually by a qualified roof maintenance company, as well arrange for a thorough home or building mold inspection by an EnviroFry Certified Environmental Hygienist.
