Asbestos Inspection Methods
Usually, when a property, either commercial or residential is sold, remodeled, or demolished, inspections for asbestos are performed to help property owners minimize their environmental liabilities. By having these inspections done early one, home and building owners can prevent project delays, save money, and prevent costly decontamination due to accidental contamination of asbestos.
Asbestos Project Management has provided inspection services for a variety of projects and jobs including:
- Residential Purchases
- Pre Demolition
- Remodeling Projects
- Commercial Real Estate Acquisitions
- Industrial Maintenance
Asbestos can be anywhere in your building, from the walls to the ceiling and floor, so it’s important to have the area inspected before making any changes to the structure.
An inspection is the first step you’ll take when working with asbestos abatement(see if that’s the right word) company. When working with an asbestos removal professional, it’s important to let them know of any areas you’re concerned about. The removal specialist will inspect the areas, not just the ones you point out to them but the entire building, and take samples. There are two ways a specialist can take samples, either from the air or material sampling.
Air sampling is when air is pulled into a cartridge to potentially collect airborne asbestos fibers. The amount of air and fibers are measured and can help determine exposure levels. Material sampling is another way professionals can inspect for asbestos, this method of sampling is especially common with older homes, and samples of common areas and materials where asbestos may be present will be taken.
The samples are tested in a lab, and if they come back with asbestos, abatement procedures will begin right away to remove the tiny fibers from your building. Our Asbestos Project Management team has removed asbestos from many homes and businesses with the latest abatement techniques and equipment. We ensure every project is completed with every safety precaution taken.
If you are having any renovation work done to your home or commercial building, contact Asbestos Project Management for an inspection, our professionals can remove the asbestos before they’re released into the air.
