If you suspect that there is asbestos in your home, it is best to contact a company that specializes in asbestos investigation. They will ensure your home is properly cleaned and safe for you to return to promptly. Look to the YouTube video below to learn about the process.
So, what does an asbestos investigation consist of? First, a professional will thoroughly inspect your residence. Federal rules and regulations govern how an inspection takes place to ensure the safety and cleanliness of your home. After a visual inspection, a professional will look through all materials to determine the source and what has been infected. Typically, building materials like roofing, siding, floor tiles, and ceiling tiles can be culprits.
Then, they will take samples of the asbestos. After lab analysis, the inspector will provide recommendations for the next steps that should be taken.
A professional asbestos removal company will then need to come into your home to remove the asbestos. Make sure you get a few estimates before hiring anyone. You don’t want to pay more than you need to for proper removal. Keep in mind that abatement work can be longer than you think depending on the extent of the asbestos in your home.
