Landlords, real estate sellers, home builders, and employers in the USA, London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Manila who deny the existence and health dangers of residential and workplace mould infestation are just as deceitful as were cigarette companies who denied the health hazards of smoking in the past, cautions Phillip Fry, Certified Environmental Hygienist.
Montrose, MI, April 20, 2016 — Landlords, real estate sellers, home builders, and employers in the USA, London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Manila who deny the existence and health dangers of residential and workplace mould infestation are just as deceitful as were cigarette companies who denied the health hazards of smoking in the past, warns Phillip Fry, Certified Environmental Hygienist, Certified Environmental Hygienist, and webmaster since 1999 of the mold health authority website www.moldinspector.com, plus the websites www.envirohongkong.com, www.kabi-mondai.com, and www.mold.ph.
“Ignoring and denying mould health risks to tenants, home buyers and employees are just as immoral and illegal as what the cigarette makers did for decades,” explains Mr. Fry, who is also a Professional Industrial Hygienist, Certified Environmental Inspector, Certified Remediation Specialist, Certified Mold Inspector, Certified Mold Remediator, and Certified Duct Cleaning Specialist.
According to the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) evident dampness or mould in buildings (such as visible dampness, visible water damage, visible mould, or mould odor), were consistently associated with increases in a number of diseases: development of new asthma, exacerbation of existing asthma, ever-diagnosis of asthma, current asthma, respiratory infections, bronchitis, allergic rhinitis (inflammation of nasal passages with runny nose or congestion), and eczema.
The W.H.O. also reports that exposure to elevated levels of indoor mould is associated with increases in a variety of respiratory symptoms: difficulty breathing, wheeze, cough, and upper respiratory symptoms. Evidence for a link between dampness and mould in homes and exacerbation of existing asthma in children was sufficient, according to the W.H.O. to strongly suggest a causal link. There is also sufficient evidence associating hypersensitivity pneumonitis with dampness and mould in buildings.
“Instead of ignoring home and office mould smells, visible mold growth, and water damage, property owners, managers, employers, real estate sellers and buyers, and tenants need to promptly engage the services of a Certified Environmental Hygienist or Certified Mould Inspector to locate and remediate indoor mould growth, including hidden mould growth,” recommends Fry, who is co-manager of EnviroFry Upkeep Masters, LLC, which serves residential and commercial property owners and tenants across the USA, as well as in the Philippines, Hong Kong, Tokyo, London, and other locations.
