The Science of A Great Business
The Indoor Environmental Testing industry is growing rapidly. It is estimated that IAQ problems cost the US economy as much as $168 billion per year, and much of this is from high-profile litigation related to poor air quality. In addition, the EPA states that indoor environments may be anywhere between two to five times more polluted than that of the outdoor environment.
The AirMD franchise was founded after research showed a lack of indoor environmental consulting services available to the public on a national level. AirMD’s mission is to create this national environmental testing and consulting company which was missing from the marketplace.
AirMD’s Environmental Consultants test and evaluate residential and commercial space for mold, asbestos, water intrusion, allergens, lead, bacteria, chemicals and volatile organic compounds, and all reporting is verified by independent third-party laboratory analysts.

The Science of the Franchise
The AirMD franchise uses a “Block Evaluation” system for all our Commercial and Residential services. The franchisee’s lab cost for three samples, customer service, and report writing are all paid for by the franchisor, but exclude operational costs of car, insurance, credit card system and marketing expenses. There are no maximum blocks a franchisee can produce weekly, it depends upon the length of the work day, days worked, and number of evaluators per franchise.
The system is created for one evaluator per franchise but without any maximum number of evaluators. The franchisor makes no representation as to the number of evaluators a market may sustain, or evaluations done per market. Success is dependent on many factors, especially Franchisee marketing efforts.
The demographics of each franchise has been determined based on population with a goal of 500,000 to 1,000,000 population based on drive time, but excluding commercial population or number of commercial companies within a territory. Commercial fees vary and are priced by the Franchisor on a case-by-case basis, based on evaluation or “block time rates” time or rate predetermined by agreement between
Franchisor and Franchisee.
AirMD is Vital to Commercial Communities
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) experts believe more people suffer from the effect of indoor air pollution than from outdoor air pollution.
It is estimated that IAQ problems cos US economy as much as $168 billion per year and there have been many high profile indoor air quality litigation cases in recent years. Commercial clients are becoming increasingly aware of liability in the workplace and the need to have verified information as to workplace environment safety standards.
It is estimated Americans spend 90% of their time indoors either at home or in a workplace environment. Providing a safe workplace is not only a regulatory requirement it is also an effective way of improving performance and reducing absenteeism leading to increased profitability.
Reduced worker productivity, increased absenteeism, occupant/employee complaint and the increase for litigation may potentially be attributed to unsatisfactory indoor environmental conditions.
