Asbestos is a natural mineral that is found in some building materials, and is known to be a hazardous carcinogen. Building owners and contractors must perform testing or site surveys prior to disturbing or demolishing a building or building materials that may contain asbestos. Although most people are aware of the potential for asbestos content in pipe insulation, 9×9 floor tile, transite siding, and floor mastic; any building material that is not made of wood, metal, or glass may contain asbestos. An AHERA accredited inspector will help you to determine the appropriate sampling plan and protocol to ensure that you protect yourself from health impacts and liabilities, without wasting money on abating unnecessary materials. I would be happy to discuss your project specifics and come up with a plan that satisfies the legal and health obligations without excessive costs and fees.
