Winter visitors to Arizona should inspect and decontaminate their snowbird residence, mobile home, hotel or resort room, or recreational vehicle to protect themselves against mold and germ-based diseases, advises Phillip Fry, Certified Environmental Hygienist and Professional Industrial Hygienist.


Montrose, MI, December 04, 2014(PressReleaseCircle) — “Winter visitors to Arizona can get seriously ill by spending their snowbird visiting time in a mold and/or germ infested residence, apartment, resort or hotel room, mobile home, or recreational vehicle,” warns Phillip Fry, Certified Environmental Hygienist, Professional Industrial Hygienist, and webmaster of

Snowbird rental units often harbor and foster toxic mold and germs because of undetected or ignored roof and wall leaks, plumbing leaks, and air conditioning, air conditioner, and swamp cooler leaks and internal mold and germ growth.
