Mold Inspections in Lakeway, Texas
In addition to serving the city of Austin, Austin Mold Assessments performs inspections for homes and businesses in Lakeway. Lakeway, Texas is famous for its abundant beauty and friendly community. But it also has an abundance of Penicillium and Aspergillus in the outdoor air. You can find plenty of these fungi in the soil and other organic biodegradable materials.
I’ve observed these fungi as I’ve done inspections in the area. The natural limestone around the lake has a tendency to hold moisture and cause elevated levels of Penicillium and Aspergillus. They are especially prevalent in homes around the hillside.
Outside mold may not seem like a big deal, but it can cause problems when it enters your home. Mold can enter your home through open doors and windows, contaminated materials from outside, and the air conditioning system. Exposure to these fungi can cause uncomfortable symptoms, but those who are allergic to mold are at greater risk of developing a mold-related illness. Mold-related illnesses include:
Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis
Significant amounts of Penicillium and Aspergillus are a sign of poor indoor air quality.
To test the amounts of these fungi in your home, an inspection will be a good option. Not only will we identify the type and amount of mold, but we’ll write a Mold Remediation Protocol for your remediation contractor, if it’s required.
If you suspect your home has an issue with mold, give us a call, and we’d be more than happy to make the trip to Lakeway to inspect your home or business. Our inspection consists of a visual examination as well as collecting and testing air samples. We’d not only get to view the lovely scenery around Lake Travis, but we’d be given the opportunity to help you protect your home, or business, and health.
