    MESA, AZ, February 14, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- "Many homeowners or rental tenants return from a weekend or longer vacation or business trip to discover that their home has been ruined by widespread house flooding and toxic mold growth that resulted from a broken water supply line," warns Certified Environmental Hygienist Phillip Fry, webmaster since 1999 of the mold education website http://www.moldinspector.com, and co-manager of the nationwide EnviroFry mold inspection and remediation company.

A good example of the home devastation that can happen during any prolonged absence of the homeowner or rental tenant is what happened during the past few weeks to a beautiful home in Sedona, Arizona. A water supply line above the kitchen ceiling suddenly broke, and thus enabled water to flow for several weeks from above the ceiling to over half of the house, ruining ceilings, walls, floors, kitchen cabinets, furniture, and furnishings in the flooded areas. Thousands of gallons of water flooded the house while the homeowner was out of town.

The water and mold damage removal and remediation cost over $20,000, not counting the cost to rebuild damaged areas and to replace kitchen cabinets, carpeting and other flooring, and furniture and furnishings. See some of the pictures of the home's extensive water and mold damage home on the website http://www.sedonamoldinspection.com, a website that offers mold help to homeowners, commercial property owners, and rental tenants in Sedona, Flagstaff, and elsewhere in northern Arizona.

The hard physical work of removing the damaged and moldy building materials, and of killing and removing the extensive toxic mold growth, throughout the water-impacted areas was done by a local water damage restoration company, which was trained, guided, and helped in mold remediation by Certified Environmental Hygienists Phillip and Divine Fry of EnviroFry, Mesa, Arizona.

EnviroFry also provided the high-tech mold remediation equipment for the mold remediation project, such as high output ozone generators to kill mold, and air scrubbers with an activated carbon filter and a large-sized HEPA filter to remove airborne mold spores and mycotoxins poisons, plus independent mold inspection and mold testing during and after the mold remediation job.
"When homeowners or residential or commercial tenants leave a house or workplace for the weekend or longer, they should turn off the water supply line to the house or rental unit during their absence so that there can be no water line break flooding during their absence," recommends Mr. Fry, who is also author of five mold advice ebooks available at http://www.moldmart.net.

Four more effective water-pipe-break flood prevention steps to protect a house or commercial building at all times are as follow:

1. Install an automatic water line break water-turn-off system in your home or workplace's main plumbing supply line.

2. On at least a quarterly basis, use a high quality moisture meter to touch and scan all floor and wall surfaces for water penetration in rooms and adjacent rooms that utilize water such as the kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry room.

3. On at least a quarterly basis, turn off all faucets and then watch the water meter measurement dial for at least one hour. If the water meter keeps on recording higher consumption even when all faucets are turn off, there is likely to be a water leak in the water supply rooms in the home or workplace.

4. Always be on the lookout for water stains and mold growth anywhere on the building's ceilings, walls, floors, and furnishings.
