Mold Authority INFO
Why Mold Authority Franchise/Why Now?
Mold Authority, the rising franchise star that specializes in indoor air quality and testing, is gearing up to meet unprecedented new demand brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
With a motto of “know the air you breathe,” Mold Authority offers testing services for viruses (including COVID-19), lead, allergens, gases, asbestos, fire byproducts, mold, radon and other IAQ contaminants.
Based in the East Coast — the epicenter of the first wave of COVID in the U.S. — Mold Authority is looking to grow its franchise system throughout the country, as post-pandemic consumers, businesses and lawmakers are more focused than ever on the environment, health and air quality.
As commercial businesses begin to open back up and welcome patrons and employees, they have a fiduciary responsibility to ensure workplace safety and clean air quality to protect the health of all occupants. This, coupled with the recent nationwide real estate boom, has created a huge need for Mold Authority’s services, as homesellers, real estate agents, property managers and landlords seek to meet legal thresholds regarding indoor air quality while homeowners and homebuyers look to protect their own long-term health.
What Sets Mold Authority Apart?
Licensed and certified through the Indoor Air Quality Association, the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, the New York State Department of Labor, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection and the American Council for Accredited Certification, Mold Authority’s professionally trained owners and employees have been servicing mold issues for more than 18 years and are up-to-date on best mold remediation industry practices and protocol.
More than just air testing services, Mold Authority provides answers and solutions to the problems they find, setting them apart in this growing niche industry. Through its “Healthy Home Assurance” program, which tracks and monitors clients’ drinking water and air quality quarterly, Mold Authority is able to continuously monitor air and water quality in homes and business environments, offering recurring income streams for franchise partners.
Why an Air Quality Company?
The air quality industry generates $4 billion annually. Now, with COVID creating increased awareness about how the quality of our air affects our health, the air quality industry is expected to explode.
Even before the pandemic, states were increasingly mandating inspections and testing in homes and buildings where mold and other environmental issues may exist.
Many states, including California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia, Maine, Illinois and Florida, in addition to New York City, have all enacted legislation explicitly establishing a landlord’s duty associated with mold contamination or radon levels.
Now, with the lessons that COVID has taught us, state mandates regarding air quality are expected to increase even further, along with consumer demand for cleaner air.
Why Franchisees Love the Brand
Mold Authority provides an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a brand with massive opportunities for growth.
With an initial investment starting as low as $43,000, franchise owners can be trained and ready to service customers within 30 days. As a mobile operation with no brick-and-mortar location and no employees needed to start, Mold Authority franchises have little overhead, making a positive ROI much easier and faster to realize.
Mold Authority’s comprehensive initial and ongoing training provided by the corporate team gives franchisees the ability to learn the easy-to-use equipment, systems and processes quickly. Mold Authority has created a robust and thorough training process that starts in person and continues online with digital resources and training videos. They also offer full-time 24/7 support and administrative resources to promote the success of each franchise owner.
Mold Authority’s breadth of services gives franchisees multiple paths to profitability, and its “Healthy Home Assurance” program, a quarterly testing and inspection service for residential customers, offers recurring income streams.
Providing air filtration devices, air filters, dehumidification systems, water filtration and other air quality products that improve the overall indoor environment, Mold Authority’s menu of products provide additional income opportunities for investors looking to partner with this growing post-COVID brand.
Current home inspectors and those in the home services field are an ideal fit for the brand, especially mom-and-pop inspection and testing businesses that can benefit from Mold Authority’s corporate support and franchise network. However, with its extensive training and onboarding, no prior training or expertise is required.
The initial investment for a Mold Authority franchise ranges from $42,750 to $91,950. For more information about franchising with Mold Authority, visit https://moldauthority.com/franchise/.
