This is the first and most important step in the process – to find out what materials may contain asbestos. We will recommend a third party lab to analyze any suspect material that could potentially be disturbed. If asbestos (lead or other hazmats) is found, we will work with you and a third party environmental consultant to ensure that asbestos and the risk of asbestos exposure is safely removed from your home .Pre: purchase, renovation, or demolition hazardous materials surveys (Hazmat Survey, also known as asbestos surveys, assessments or reports) for property owners, employers, contractors and property management groups. This is a critical first step prior to any asbestos removal work taking place. Structures need to be inspected to identify hazardous materials collect samples to be analysed by an accredited lab and then provide a report (an inventory of hazardous materials). This is a necessary first step to determine if abatement is required before any renovations, repairs, or demolition can occur. The hazmat survey process is explained in detail here. When the report has been completed we can determine related costs for any necessary abatement.
