Here in Austin, Texas, there are Texas laws, rules and regulations established by the Texas Department of State Health Services Environmental Regulatory Division which must be considered for all mold projects: Mold Inspections, Mold Testing, and Mold Remediation or Mold Removal. The Texas mold laws protect the consumer by preventing a conflict of interest. It is strictly prohibited for a company to perform both a mold inspection and mold remediation on any project.
