Starting a Mold BusinessI am interested in starting a full service mold assessment and mold remediation business. With your products and course material how much will I need. I understand the inspection and sampling equipment costs about $500 and the course work will cost about $500. What will I need for remediation and How much will this cost? Does the sampling course cover complete identification procedures including growing cultures and microscopic work?
Any remediation equipment you need beyond the $500 mark would vary a little bit depending on what types of jobs you'll be doing. Generally you can expect to spend an additional $500 - $2000 on equipment during the first years of getting setup.
The course doesn't go into microscopy or growing mold cultures. This is a little more than what a mold assessment or mold inspection normally includes. Typically, a mold inspector will take a sample (swab, tape sample, bulk sample, or air sample) and then send the mold sample off to a lab. The lab actually does sometimes grow a culture with the mold to identify but other times, if the structure of the mold is preserved, it can be visually identified by the lab technicians.
I\'m going to star business at this year.
I am planning on starting a business in a couple months
