My name is Tim Taylor. My wife Liz and I moved to Austin in 2006 to be closer to family. We now live in Pflugerville with our two daughters Kylie (10) and Claire (4). When Kylie was five, she suffered from chronic respiratory issues. During this time, we lived in an apartment and I conducted what was to be my first inspection. What I uncovered were HVAC vents full of mold. After sending maintenance out a couple times to do “duct cleaning” that we were told would fix the issues, we realized that property management wasn’t taking the issue seriously. Sadly, I now see this all too commonly with my clients. Luckily our lease period was coming up and we had the means to move elsewhere.
In early 2016, I was laid off from my project management job in the electronic health record industry. Knowing that I was looking for a stable career that would make a difference in people’s lives, my father, Dr. Wallace Taylor of Texas Integrative Medicine, began to tell me about all the patients he was seeing with mold related symptoms and how he was having trouble finding a reliable and trustworthy inspector in the Austin area. Between this and our ordeal in the apartment, my calling as an honest and knowledgeable indoor environment professional became clear.
Yes, the company name was inspired by the popular 90s sitcom Home Improvement and yes, we are big fans of the show. I’d love the opportunity to meet you and yours and help with any mold and other indoor air quality issues you may be dealing with.
