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
“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
www.moldinspector.com/mold_removal.htm,” advises Mr. Fry, whose national
EnviroFry firm does mould inspection, testing, and removal in most areas of
“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
www.bleach-mold-myth.com,” 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
www.bbb.org 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.
