Why is an Asbestos Survey Necessary?
Visual identification is not sufficient to determine the presence or absence of asbestos fibers in building materials. Only an asbestos survey or asbestos assessment, which involves laboratory sampling and analysis of materials, can accurately identify and quantify asbestos fibers in building materials.
When are Asbestos Surveys Carried Out?
Asbestos surveys/investigations are typically required as part of due diligence in commercial real estate transactions or financing, before the demolition or renovation of buildings, or after suspected damage to structures during floods and after natural disasters.
Asbestos is still made and used in some building materials to this day, such as roofing materials, joint compounds, floor tiles, masts, window putties, brake pads, and (very rarely) insulation. For this reason, it is a federal requirement that before any building demolition or renovation, regardless of construction date, the suspect MCA must be identified. In addition, many local building departments will not issue building permits until an asbestos investigation has been completed. This guarantees that renovation and demolition activities can release asbestos fibers into the air, where occupants and construction workers inhale them.
Lastly, an asbestos assessment is highly recommended after a major flood, water damage, or natural disaster that significantly disrupts or compromises a building’s structure. This is usually the first step before any structural damage assessment or reconstruction.
Asbestos Removal and Reduction
There are many asbestos management options for customers in addition to ACM removal as needed: abatement oversight, air monitoring, development of an operation and maintenance (O&M) plan, and/or release sampling to ensure fibers asbestos are not present in the air after removal. However, an asbestos investigation is the first step in ensuring you receive your permits and carrying out the necessary renovation or demolition plans.
