Why Should I Work in the Mold Industry?

If you are looking for a stable job that offers a lot of benefits, then look no further! Working in the mold industry will provide you with opportunities that you will not see elsewhere. What are these benefits? Let’s find out!

The Benefits of Working in the Mold Industry


  • Low Entry Level

Unlike many other careers, working in the mold industry does not require that you have years of education. Many successful mold remediators did not go to college or plan to be in the field. If you want to work in the mold industry, then look for classes near you. Most are available online and take no more than 2-3 days to complete. Doing so will give you the proper credentials you need to be well on your way to starting a successful business.

  • Making a Difference

When picturing jobs that make a positive difference to those around them, many minds jump to a doctor or a firefighter. What many fail to realize is that mold remediation and removal can positively impact people as well. Families who have unaddressed mold problems with no way of identifying them risk both their house and their health. Breathing in the mold’s pollutants constantly puts them at risk of serious danger. On top of this, many homeowners struggle with the financial burden of tearing down their mold-infested buildings because they cannot identify the mold’s location. Working in the mold industry will help prevent these issues, ensuring that these families can have someone to turn to for their needs.

  • Job Security

It is no secret that as long as buildings are around, there will be mold problems somewhere. Most workers in the mold industry have more work than they can handle when their company has a positive reputation. The same can be true for you if you are willing to take the first steps on the path to starting your own business.

  • Solid Income

The income for a mold inspector is an average of $34,000-$41,000. This number varies depending on your location and the weather present in your current location. 

  • Flexibility

Owning your own business as a mold assessor allows you to be more flexible with your hours. This sort of schedule will enable you to take on more side projects or travel. This freedom to choose what jobs you take on is something you can not find everywhere else.
