The Austin Code Department cannot address possible mold growing in your house/apartment. However, mold is often a sign of other violations that the Austin Code Department can address such as a water or wastewater leak, a leaking roof or other structural condition violations.
You can hire a private company to assess the mold. You can also contact the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) at 1-800-293-0753 or get more information at http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/iaq/mold.shtm. Tenants dealing with possible mold issues can contact the Austin Tenants’ Council at 512-474-7006 for assistance.
