Inspection & Assessment
Exposure to asbestos poses enormous health and safety hazards that must be managed or eliminated, as quickly as possible. If your building requires asbestos identification, the inspection process will be conducted by an industrial hygiene consulting firm. Depending on what the inspection uncovers, it could call for the safe removal or in-place management of the asbestos. The inspection firm should also be independent of any abatement contracting companies hired to conduct
asbestos removal work.

Asbestos is the name of a group of highly fibrous minerals with separable, long and thin fibers. Asbestos fibers are strong and flexible enough to be spun and woven. Asbestos fibers are heat and chemical resistant, making them useful for many industrial purposes.
Asbestos has been used commonly in a variety of building construction materials for insulation and as a fire-retardant. Since asbestos fibers are resistant to heat and most chemicals, they have been mined for use in over 3,000 different products including roofing materials, brake pads and cement pipe often used in distributing water to communities.
Today, asbestos is most commonly found in older homes, in pipe and furnace insulation materials, asbestos shingles, millboard, textured paints and other coating materials as well as floor tiles.
Home Biotesting inspectors have extensive experience in performing surveys for property transactions. The surveys allow the financial liability associated with managing and removing asbestos-containing material (ACM) to be considered in the valuation of the property. Asbestos surveys and screenings involve a sampling and laboratory analysis of the building materials and can accurately identify and quantify asbestos fibers.
Before renovation and demolition activities, the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants regulation requires that all building materials that will be impacted be surveyed to identify all ACM.
Home BioTesting can manage the removal process and through the use of subcontractors with whom Home BioTesting has competitive rates and long-standing relationships.
