Dripping Springs Mold Inspection and Testing
Austin Mold Assessments provides mold testing and inspection services to homes and business in Dripping Springs. Since the City of Dripping Springs is a major suburb of Austin, we do a lot of mold inspections and testing there.
As the population continues to grow in Dripping Springs, calls for mold inspections have increased. Situated in the Texas Hill County, the climate of Dripping Springs is characterized by humidity in the warm season and yet theterrain throughout the region is punctuated by a thin layer of topsoil and a large number of exposed rocks and boulders, making the region very dry and prone to flash flooding. This combination creates an atmosphere for high mold potential in the area.
Dripping Springs Climate and Mold
With the heat and humidity, people rely on their air conditioning systems to stay cool. Many systems will run continuously through October. With extended use of the systems, moisture builds in the HVAC and 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 Dripping Springs 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.
