What is a Good Faith Survey, and Why Do You Need One?
While asbestos based products are not dangerous unless damaged or disturbed, it’s important to be aware of asbestos in your building and when it can pose a health risk. Asbestos testing is a simple and effective way to determine whether your building can benefit from asbestos abatement.
AHERA Certified Building Inspectors
When human health and safety are on the line, it's important to call a company that is certified to do an effective asbestos good faith survey. Our AHERA certified building inspectors will be able to perform a visual inspection of the home, as well as carefully take some samples of any suspected materials for testing. If they find asbestos is present, the inspector will provide you with a written evaluation that details where the mineral can be found and its extent in the building. Additionally, our inspectors can make recommendations for how to correct the situation or prevent damage to any undisturbed asbestos.
