EnviroFry Recommends Getting Second Opinion or Bid
for Toxic Mold Inspection, Testing, & Removal

“Get a second opinion or bid from an EnviroFry Certified Environmental Hygienist before hiring mold inspection, testing, and remediation services to make sure that the job gets done right and at the right price,” advocates Phillip Fry, mold expert and webmaster since 1999 of the mold information website

“Often mold service companies do incomplete, superficial, and unprofessional inspection and testing that fails to find toxic mold infestations hidden inside walls, ceilings, floors, attics, basements, crawl spaces, and heating/cooling equipment and ducts,” warns Mr. Fry, who is a Certified Environmental Hygienist, Professional Industrial Hygienist, and author of five mold advice ebooks.

“In addition, many mold companies remediation jobs fail to get rid of mold growth completely and safely.  Before hiring a mold company to do remediation, compare its proposed mold remediation plan with the ten steps necessary for effective mold removal, as posted at,” advises Mr. Fry, whose national EnviroFry firm does mould inspection, testing, and removal in most areas of the U.S.

“One of the most important facts to learn is what fungicide the company plans to use to kill mold.  Many mold companies still continue use ineffective bleach instead of a proven E.P.A.-registered fungicide because bleach is low in cost and available at a local grocery store. Read why bleach does not kill mold at,” suggests Mr. Fry.

“Another warning sign is when the mold company’s bid includes a secret ‘proprietary’ fungicide.  Insist on knowing in advance what products are going to be used and on receiving and reviewing the material safety data sheet (MSDS) for the proposed product,” adds Mr. Fry.

“Ask for many client references, and then call the references to learn what they have to say about the actual services provided by mold company,” further suggests Mr. Fry. Also, visit to find out whether the firm is BBB-accredited and whether the firm has a good or bad BBB record in handling customer complaints.

For the highest quality mold inspection, testing, and remediation, hire only a company staffed with Certified Environmental Hygienists, Professional Industrial Hygienists, or Certified Industrial Hygienists. Just being a “certified mold inspector” or “certified mold remediator” is not very re-assuring to a prospective client in view of the brief (two to three days) training received by many “certified” mold inspectors and mold remediators.

Mold Growth Lab
Grow, count, and identify only living mold spores in your self-collected Mold Growth Lab surface samples, air samples, and bulk physical samples worldwide, both before and after mold remediation with mold growth Petri lab dishes from Mold Growth Lab.
Mold Growth Lab provides you with easy-to-follow mold testing steps to use both Mold Growth Lab surface samplers and Petri lab dishes to collect possible mold growth on any surface, in room air, in the outward air flow from heating/cooling air ducts, and on mold growth on building material physical specimens.
You can self-observe the lab dishes for 7 days to know: (1) is it mold? (2) is the mold alive? (3) how many mold colonies grew in the 7 day observation period.  Only living mold spores will grow in the special mold food habitat inside the Petri lab dishes. Each living mold spore will grow a separate, distinguishable, countable, and identifiable mold colony. Dead mold spores will grow NO mold colonies.
After the 7 day culture growth time period, each lab dish can be analyzed by our partner mold analysis lab to identify and quantify the mold colonies that have grown during that 7 days, and then provide a written report with such mold species identification and quantification.
