Texas Mold Regulations
Did you know Texas has regulations regarding mold covering testing and remediation?
Mold assessors, mold remediation contractors/companies or any companies removing mold are required to have a mold license from the State of Texas Department of Health which requires course work and passing exams, insurances, etc.
There are thresholds levels of mold growth where the regulations kick in. Generally this is 25 contiguous sq ft. ( picture a 5' X 5' square).
If the mold all put together in an area would cover that much, Texas does have regulations regarding its removal by a company.
Sometimes it is helpful to imagine the mold growth in proportion to covering a sheet of plywood, though that is actually 32 sq ft, it is easier to envision.
SERVPRO of Waco is licensed as a mold remediation company and has a licensed as a mold remediation contractor.
We can certainly help you find a mold assessor to test and evaluate mold if necessary. This can be a little pricey.
Texas does not allow remediation companies to test for mold or mold assessors to remediate mold. A firm either does one or the other.
