How To Avoid Buying or Renting a Moldy House or Condo in Arizona and Southern California, Advises Mold Expert Phillip Fry

PHOENIX, AZ – Dec 21, 2015 – “Buying or renting a mold-infested house, condo, or apartment will result in family members getting very sick from exposure to elevated levels of health-destroying toxic mold growth that is common in a large number of residences in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Tucson, Arizona-wide, Los Angeles, San Diego, and elsewhere in southern California,” warns mold consultant Phillip Fry, who is the webmaster since 1999 of the mold health website

The first step to avoid buying or renting a moldy home or apartment is not to rely solely on a traditional home inspector. “Most home inspectors don’t have the training, certification, expertise, and experience to find toxic mold growth hidden inside walls, ceilings, floors, attics, crawl spaces, and heating/cooling air ducts,” explains Fry, who is a Professional Industrial Hygienist, Certified Environmental Hygienist, Certified Environmental Inspector, Certified Remediation Specialist, Certified Mold Inspector, Certified Mold Remediator, and Certified Duct Cleaning Specialist.

Step two is to supplement a home inspector’s inspection with thorough mold inspection and testing of the prospective family home by a qualified and experienced environmental hygienist or industrial hygienist.

The third step is to have the hygienist prepare an in depth mold remediation protocol plan of how to get rid of any toxic mold growth discovered in the mold inspection.

Step four is to require that the home seller or landlord fully implement the mold remediation protocol plan, with clearance mold testing afterwards by an independent environmental or industrial hygienist unaffiliated with the mold remediation company, before completing the home purchase or rental and before moving in.

Step five is to have a real estate-oriented attorney review a home purchase or rental agreement before signing it, especially to avoid clauses that accept the home in an “as is” condition, plus require that the home seller or landlord disclose all prior and mold problems in the home being purchased or rented.
