  • Monroe, MI (1888PressRelease) October 11, 2013 - Mold consultant Phillip Fry warns that the most challenging problem in making a house or commercial building mold-safe and habitable is effective mold inspection and mold testing to find toxic mold hidden inside ceilings, walls, floors, heating/cooling equipment and ducts, attics, basements, and crawl spaces.

    Because most homeowners and workplace owners and managers fail to do continual and effective building maintenance, it is common for homes, offices, and commercial structures to have roof leaks, siding and window leaks, plumbing leaks, air conditioning condensation pan and drip line leaks, and rampant mold growth inside heating/cooling equipment, ducts, and window air conditioners.

    To find hidden mold growth, use a digital moisture meter to scan the surfaces of floors, walls and ceilings. If hidden moisture is detected, there is likely to be mold growth hidden in such wet areas.

    Another good mold inspection tool is to use a fiber optics inspection device inserted into one inch diameter openings into floors, walls, and ceilings. You can see the insides of such areas as far away as three feet in any direction from the insertion hole.

    Another effective mold investigation strategy is to do mold air testing with an air pump and Air-O-Cell cassette to determine if there are elevated levels of airborne mold spores in the outward air flow from heating/cooling duct registers and window/wall air conditioners, plus the air of each room, the attic, and crawl space.

    If the mold lab analysis results find that the airborne mold counts of any mold species is significantly higher than the mold count for the same species in the outdoor mold control test, such a difference indicates that there is an indoor source for the elevated level of airborne mold spores.

    Effective mold removal of hidden mold growth often requires opening up mold-impacted surfaces to remove and throw out moldy building materials such as drywall and insulation and to remove mold growth from horizontal and vertical timbers. Throwing out moldy building materials is the very best mold remediation step and it is known as "dumpster mold remediation".

    The first and last step in successful mold remediation should be high output ozone treatment. For information on EnviroFry ozone generators, visit Read mold expert Phillip Fry's recommended ten steps for effective mold removal at

    Also very powerful in mold removal is to kill mold growth first with an EPA-registered fungicide such as Tim-Bor, and then to re-spray Tim-Bor onto or into mold remediated areas before rebuilding walls, ceilings, and floors. Read about Tim-Bor at
