conditioning, electrical services, elevators, boilers, architectural barriers, water
wells, and industrialized housing and buildings, which in turn require attention
from TDLR staff. Evacuation and recovery efforts require the services of
towing operators to clear routes and remove stranded vehicles. The need of

inspection, and certification workload of TDLR's Industrialized Housing and
Buildings program is increased proportionately.
The rush to aid those adversely affected by natural disasters invariably leads to
the proliferation of unskilled and unlicensed individuals offering to do repairs
for home and business owners. TDLR reminds owners of damaged homes and
businesses that contracting with unlicensed individuals for air conditioning and
electrical repairs can be hazardous and costly. In the wake of these episodes,
TDLR must respond to an influx of complaints filed by home and business
owners who were scammed.
