It's The Law
Construction laws are different in every state, but in Louisiana, you must hold a Mold Remediator's license to perform any Mold-Related work valued over $1.
If you perform work without a license, you risk subjecting yourself to fines and even criminal charges. In Louisiana, performing work as an unlicensed contractor can result in being charged with a misdemeanor, and penalties can be up to $500/day for each day the violation occurred or up to 3 months in prison.
Gives You a Higher Earning Potential
In Louisiana, any Mold Remediation project over $1 in labor and material costs requires a licensed professional. Unless you are performing the work on your own home or building that you own, a license is necessary to perform any mold-related services.
Mold Remediation projects commonly cost thousands of dollars, and can easily go into the tens of thousands. Adding Mold-Related Services to your business's offerings will give you a higher earning potential by opening up a new market and new projects to you and your team.
Not holding a license can result in trouble for you and your business. If caught, you can be looking at costly fines and a loss of clientele. Avoid this by taking the appropriate measures to get your license. If you’re unsure where to start, don’t worry. Get in touch with us today and we’ll walk you through the process!
