EnviroFry Warns Cross-Contamination Spreads
Work, Homes, Vehicles, Pets, and People
“Elevated levels of indoor toxic mold in one location can easily
cross-contaminate another location and occupants because of landed or
deposited airborne mold spores on the skin, hair, clothes and shoes of
occupants, visitors, and furry pets such as dogs and cats,” points out mold
expert Phillip Fry, co-manager of EnviroFry, and webmaster of the websites
Mold cross-contamination can happen in one or more of these scenarios---
1. Workers in, or visitors to, a mold-infested office, store, or other
workplace are at risk for taking elsewhere airborne mold spores that have
landed on their skin, hair, clothes, or shoes. Workers in a moldy workplace
can easily spread those landed mold spores to their vehicles and homes to
initiate mold growth therein.
2. If employees or business customers (such as hotel and motel guests)
breathe in an elevated number of airborne mold spores, the building’s mold
growth can result in transferred mold growth into the bodies of workers,
customers, and guests, and subsequently their residences.
3. Similarly, employees who live in a moldy home environment can
cross-contaminate mold spores from their homes to their places of
employment, as well as their vehicles.
4. Mold growth hidden inside heating and cooling equipment and ducts can
easily cross-contaminate the entire home or building and into the occupants’
5. Cats and dogs on their fur can bring outdoor mold spores into family
homes and vehicles.
Exposure to elevated levels of indoor mold growth can cause 100 major
illnesses that are listed on the home page and mould health section of the
mold education website
www.moldinspector.com and in Phillip Fry’s ebook Mold Health Guide,
If people are suffering from illnesses from mold at home or at work, both
locations, as well as vehicles, should be inspected and tested for elevated
levels of mold growth.
Similarly, mold victims should ask that their attending physician test each
family member for internal mold growth, utilizing such tests as mold
antibody blood testing, culturing of nasal cavity swabs, and urine
When toxic mold is growing, it throws into the breathing air large numbers
of airborne mold spores and mycotoxin (volatile organic compound) poisons.
