Drought Causes Unexpected Mold Problems for Arizona & California Homeowners, Warns Hygienist Fry

“The ongoing, severe drought in Arizona, California, and Nevada has the unforeseen consequence of increasing dangerous toxic mold growth in swamp coolers, window/wall air conditioners, and central air conditioning equipment and ducts,” points out Phillip Fry, Professional Industrial Hygienist, Certified Environmental Hygienist, and webmaster since 1999 of the mold information website plus

“Such cooling equipment is often a big mold factory because of the high moisture content inside units, in conjunction with a continual supply of mold growth sustaining food in the form of organic dust plus always taking in airborne mold spores from any mold growth problem that exists elsewhere in the house, rental apartment, workplace, or commercial building,” advises Mr. Fry, whose company EnviroFry does mold testing of the outward air flow from swamp coolers, air conditioners, and HVAC air duct supply registers as an important step in its mold inspection assignments in all three states.  

The severe drought and record high temperatures being experienced in Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale, Tucson, Arizona-wide, Las Vegas, and southern California lead to increased unit operational time and longer daily use of swamp coolers, window air conditioners, and HVAC air conditioning systems.

“People incorrectly think that deserts are low mold-growth areas, but in actuality, the hot desert areas are the growing habitat for the deadly Valley Fever mold spores that are carried by the wind into urban areas in all three states. Valley Fever has killed or disabled thousands of residents in Arizona, California, and Nevada in the past several years,” advises Mr. Fry.

Valley Fever danger, rampant air conditioning mold growth, high humidity along the California coast, and plumbing leaks hidden inside walls, ceilings, and floors are the four biggest reasons for mold health problems in Southwestern U.S.A.
