Mold Experts Warn Frigid Winter Weather Frequently Causes Toxic Mold in Homes and Commercial Buildings

Mold consultants Phillip and Divine Fry alert property owners that freezing winter weather is a big favor in causing indoor mold growth in houses and workplaces in cold weather climates worldwide.

Montrose, Michigan (I-Newswire) December 8, 2013 - Mold consultants Phillip and Divine Fry advise that freezing winter weather often causes significant indoor toxic mold growth in northern USA, Canada, United Kingdom, northern Europe, Russia, China, Korea, Japan, Argentina, Chile, Australia, and New Zealand.

One of the winter-related, mold-making conditions is poor indoor ventilation (because of usually-closed windows and doors) that increases indoor humidity moisture and airborne mold spore counts.

"Good ventilation of a home or commercial building's attic, living areas, and basement or crawl space helps to keep indoor humidity below the 70% humidity level that is sufficient to enable mold to grow indoors," according to the Frys, who are Certified Environmental Hygienists, Professional Industrial Hygienists, Certified Mold Inspectors, Certified Mold Remediators, and webmasters of the mold information websites,, and

Another big winter factor favoring mold growth is that ice dams often form on the roof surface from the melting and re-freezing of roof snow. Ice dams back up melting snow and thus cause water to run beneath the roof shingles and into attics, ceilings, and wall.

The Frys note that the biggest cause of winter-related mold growth is frozen water pipes that burst and flood into the insides of walls, ceilings, floors, and entire rooms and building floors.

Exposure to elevated levels of toxic mold can cause over 100 different major illnesses, according to Phillip Fry, who is also executive director of and author of the mold advice ebook Mold Health Guide, available at

"Toxic mold exposure in residences and workplaces can cause chronic tiredness, headaches, and memory and mental reasoning difficulties, plus the following top twelve mold health problems reported by the U.S. Government's General Accounting Office's 'Indoor Mold' report, which summarized 32 federal government mold studies and reports," reports Mr. Fry:

1.Asthma, asthma triggers, or asthma symptoms (such as episodes or attacks), 2.Upper respiratory tract symptoms, 3.Eye symptoms, 4.Skin symptoms, 5.Allergies or allergic reactions , 6.Wheeze, 7.Cough, 8.Difficulty breathing, trouble breathing, or shortness of breath, 9.
