Understanding the Cost of Asbestos Abatement

No one wants to spend their hard-earned money on asbestos abatement, so it’s understandable that the first thing many homeowners want to know is how much asbestos abatement will cost.

We bid each project on a case-by-case basis because the scope of each job is different. But here are some things that will factor into the cost of removing asbestos from your home or building.

  • The Size & Layout of the Area
    The biggest factor that determines the cost of asbestos abatement is the overall size of the area and how much asbestos needs to be removed.  
  • Containment Time
    Tricky home layouts and preserving specific historical or sentimental elements of the home makes containing the area more complicated and therefore more time consuming.
  • Materials & Manpower
    Each person requires their own set of personal protective equipment, which includes suits, respirators, and masks. In addition to removing the asbestos, we use professional-grade HEPA vacuums and antimicrobial cleaners to remove all traces of asbestos from surfaces and the air.
  • Disposal Costs
    We safely contain and dispose of all asbestos-containing materials according to EPA guidelines, which requires a permit. Costs for asbestos disposal vary from state to state.
  • Independent Lab Testing
    We send an AHERA certified building inspector to take samples after the asbestos has been removed to ensure that the area is safe to inhabit.
