AUSTIN, Texas — It’s been a long, cold winter for Texas residents, but that’s not stopping the nation’s top home mold expert from declaring that the state is in a new, mild phase of mold outbreaks.
The first large-scale outbreak of house mold was reported in December of 2017.
The problem spread across the state, infecting hundreds of thousands of people and costing more than $600 million in economic losses, according to a report by the University of Texas Health Science Center.
But that number is likely to have risen with the warmer weather and increased testing.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating the cause of the problem, which may have been caused by the new cold weather.
There is no known cure or treatment for house mold, but some experts are warning that this year’s cold weather could cause a resurgence of the disease, particularly in Texas.
The report also noted that Texas has had more than 500 cases of home mold in 2017, which is more than double the number in 2016.
The report said the number of cases is expected to grow.
Mold is a bacterial disease caused by spores of mold, which are found in wood, fabrics, carpets and furniture.
It can cause mild to moderate symptoms, but can cause serious infections, including pneumonia and even death.
It has been blamed for causing several illnesses, including a high number of respiratory illnesses, and some deaths.
There are two types of mold: those that live in the air and those that are in the environment.
Both are resistant to heat and can cause problems, including mold growth.
In 2018, more than 2.6 million people had home mold infections, according the report.
In 2017, the CDC reported that a total of 14.5 million cases of mold infections were reported in the United States, the largest single year in the history of the agency.
The new report is based on the data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which tracks the number and types of health-care and consumer-products complaints received by the federal government and the state of Texas.
The agency also analyzed data from health care providers that track mold complaints, the report said.
The U.S. Centers for Diseases Control and Control and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission report said home mold cases in the state declined in 2017 from 1.3 million to 1.2 million.
The decrease in mold infections was due to a slight uptick in complaints from consumers and healthcare providers, according a report from the state’s Department of State Health Services.
Texas had the third-highest number of home and commercial mold complaints in the country in 2017.
A state report released last year found that Texas had the sixth-highest percentage of complaints in that category.
Mould in the home can cause respiratory problems, and the most common symptoms include cough, fever and shortness of breath.

In addition to home mold, the new report found a spike in mold in the drinking water supply in the Texas capital of Austin, and in the city of Galveston, the state capital.
In addition, there was a spike of mold in restaurants and other food-service establishments, according-to the report, which was released by the Texas Department of Public Health.
Molds can also affect the lungs, causing severe asthma attacks.
The reports also said there were cases of mild to severe mold infections in the community, although most of those cases were from a relatively small area in the greater Houston area.
The problem has spread across Texas.
In Houston, for example, there were more than 300 cases of house and commercial molds in the first quarter of 2018, compared to fewer than 120 in the same period last year.
The number of homes with mold rose to nearly 100,000 in the fourth quarter of the year.

They can also be extremely hard to treat.
The Department of Health Services released a report in 2018 that said it had recorded nearly 2,200 cases of respiratory illness linked to home and personal-care mold infections between January and March of this year.
Most of those infections were from individuals who had had home or personal-service mold problems.
The department has reported that cases of food-borne illness have been higher, too.
In the report’s first section, it said the health risks from home mold and food-contact mold are similar to those of other diseases that have been linked to climate change.
The health risks of food mold and mold-related respiratory illnesses are similar because the diseases are caused by a fungus that lives in food.
The spores that produce the diseases can be killed by washing food and utensils, but they can also infect people through contact with food, including cooking and eating.
