News Release Feb. 7,
Toxic Mold Public Health Warning Issued Worldwide
by Mold Experts Phillip and Divine Fry
On February 7, 2014, Professional Industrial Hygienists,
Certified Environmental Hygienists, and mold consultants Phillip and Divine
Fry issued a worldwide toxic mold health warning to wake up homeowners,
commercial building owners, employers, and rental tenants to the extreme
health dangers of their exposure to elevated levels of toxic mold growth in
their houses, condominiums, apartments, commercial buildings, and
Since 1999 the Frys and their international firm EnviroFry have provided
mold inspection, testing, removal, and remediation nationwide in the USA,
Canada-wide, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Thailand, Malaysia, and the
The Frys’ alert asks residential and commercial property owners and tenants
everywhere in the world to ask themselves these six key home and workplace
mold investigation questions:
1. Is your home or workplace part of the fifty percent (50%) of all occupied
buildings that have hidden toxic mold growth inside
heating/air conditioning equipment and ducts, walls, ceilings, floors,
carpeting, attic, crawl space, basement, garage, and furnishings?
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that half of all USA
homes have a serious mold problem. The mold infestation percentage is far
higher than fifty percent in many Asian nations.
2. Do any of your family members, employees, or work associates suffer any
of these chronic (on-going) mold health problems that have been
identified by the U.S. government and mold doctors as the top mold
illnesses---tiredness, depression, headaches, memory problems, mental
reasoning problems, feeling disconnected from the world around you, asthma,
allergies or allergic reactions, upper respiratory problems, wheezing,
coughing, sneezing, difficulty in breathing, shortness of breath,
hypersensitivity pneumonitis, eye symptoms, fungal infections, skin rashes
or open sores?
3.Does your home or workplace now have (or in the past) roof leaks, siding
leaks, plumbing leaks, air conditioning condensation drip pan or drain pipe
leaks, window leaks or condensation, or other water intrusion problems?
4. Do any of your bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans or dryer vent into
walls, ceilings, floors,
basement, crawl space, or anywhere other than directly to the outdoors?
5. Have you not thoroughly cleaned out the insides of your window or
wall air conditioners and/or central air conditioning equipment and ducts at
least quarterly or semi-annually?
6. Have had no mold inspection and mold testing of the house, condominium,
apartment, or workplace in the past year by a qualified mold professional?
If a homeowner, commercial building owner, employer, or rental tenant
answers “yes” to one or more of these questions, the property owner or
occupant’s family or employees would benefit health-wise from a thorough
physical mold inspection and mold testing of the home or workplace and its
heating/cooling system by a Professional Industrial Hygienist, Certified
Environmental Hygienist, and/or Certified Mold Inspector. Visit the
