RESIDENTIAL Asbestos

 

Questionable Material? If you are the owner, and agree at your own risk - follow these steps to submit a sample of your unknown material. At no time is asbestos a safe material to be handled without extreme caution and awareness training. 

  1. Lightly moisten the area where you want to collect the sample (soapy water will keep the dust and airborne filters to a minimum)
  2. Using a scapel, box knife, or protective gloves, break apart 1-2 square inches of the material (size of 1-2 quarters)
  3. Enclose the material in an air tight container (ziplock baggie)
  4. Print off a Chain of Custody from the download page - and record a sample number, location for your reference, and any additional information you would like tracked with the sample. 
  5. Contact the office to complete a project acceptance agreement and confirm pricing.
  6. Mail or deliver the sample to us!
If there are possible legal complications, contamination concerns, or any possible risks, please contact us to have a STATE LICENSED building inspector collect the sample according to regulations.  The following pictures are a few examples of the asbestos containing materials (ACMs) found in residential properties.  There are many more and many variations of these - DO NOT use this as a check list.
