The Process..

Asbestos Inspections and Assessments follow some of the protocols and aspects of AHERA. Due to the nature of residential inspections, only certain aspects will be taken. Samples are taken using protocols with guidance from a certified AHERA building inspector to limit the potential of spreading of fibers throughout the living space. Plastic will put down and rooms sealed when necessary. Typically, HVAC systems will be temporarily shut down and doors/windows closed during the sampling process.  Samples are then sent to a state certified lab for analysis. Once the results are sent to the inspector a report is generated with the findings and recommendations are provided.
