Georgetown Mold Inspection and Testing
Austin Mold Assessments provides mold testing and inspection services to homes and business in Georgetown. The City of Georgetown is a major city in our service area and we do a lot of mold inspections and testing there.
As the population continues to grow in Georgetown, calls for mold inspections have increased. The climate of Georgetown is characterized by long hot summers and 2-3 inches of rain per month. The summers tend to be humid and can lead to mold growth if it’s not controlled.
Georgetown Climate and Mold
With the heat and humidity, people rely on their air conditioning systems to stay cool. It’s not unusual to have 90 degree temperatures through October, so air conditioning system become overburdened. With extended use of the air conditioner, moisture builds around the coil and drain system and that’s where mold problems can begin. When the outdoor mold spores are already high and combine with the moist air conditioning systems, mold will colonize with the system and ductwork.
it’s not unusual for me to find thousands of mold spores in my outdoor mold samples during the summer months. More and more, I tend find mold growth at HVAC vents toward the end of the summer.
Some people who have Mold Allergies often suffer more when they are indoors when they have developed elevated mold conditions in their air conditioners.
Mold from Leaks and Floods
Homes in the Georgetown area experience their share of leaks and floods. Inadequate water cleanup leads to a lot of mold problems that I see. Even after the water is gone, mold can grow in its wake. If you have experienced a water leak and you see visible mold, it’s probably more extensive than you realize.
