Expert Asbestos Inspection and Testing Services In Decatur

Asbestos inspections find asbestos having materials that may become unsafe when agitated during renovation or demolition. Asbestos inspections by a state certified asbestos inspector are oftentimes needed to satisfy permitting requirements. Certified asbestos inspectors are qualified to know which materials are most likely to contain asbestos and how to gather the samples properly. A state certified asbestos inspector is required to take an annual refresher course to maintain certification.

Certified Asbestos Inspectors in Georgia

Air Allergen’s state certified asbestos inspector can normally inspect the property and collect samples within 2 business days of receiving a call. The number of samples taken during an asbestos inspection is decided on by state and federal regulation based on the purpose of the asbestos inspection as well as the type and quantity of each material found.

Samples taken during the asbestos inspection are sent to a commercial laboratory that has been accredited by NVLAP for analysis of bulk samples by Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM), the EPA method most commonly used for detecting asbestos-containing materials.

While the PLM method is budget-friendly and sufficiently accurate for the preliminary screening of samples collected during an asbestos inspection, it is not as sensitive as the point count method for asbestos content near the regulated threshold of one percent.

Asbestos Sampling

Samples taken during the asbestos inspection are sent to a commercial laboratory that has been accredited by NVLAP for analysis of bulk samples by Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM), the EPA method most often used for detecting asbestos containing materials.

While the PLM method is economical and sufficiently accurate for the first screening of samples collected during an asbestos inspection, it is not as sensitive as the point count method for asbestos content near the regulated threshold of one percent.

Samplings taken by our asbestos inspector with asbestos content between one and two percent that are suitable for point count analysis will be resubmitted to the lab for the more accurate point count method without additional cost to our clients. This lowers the risk of having an unneeded and potentially significant abatement cost from using asbestos inspectors who do not use the point count method.

The asbestos content in most building materials has been regulated in the U.S. since the late 1970’s; however asbestos use in flooring products has never been banned. In addition, any materials obtained from overseas may still contain regulated quantities of asbestos. Thus, the regularly asked question “Was it built prior to 1980?” should only be used as a rough guideline and not as an excuse to forego testing. No building, despite the date of construction, is exempt from state and federal asbestos regulations.

Proper Asbestos Removal

If you are thinking of remodeling or demolishing a building, consider having the substances sampled before work kicks off to make certain you are not exposing those in the environment to unnecessary health risks. The state of Georgia requires that if the quantity of materials to be disturbed is greater than 10 square feet, asbestos testing must be performed. Localities will require proof of testing prior to issuing any construction permits.

Materials identified as consisting of asbestos must be taken care of in a specialized manner. An asbestos abatement company can help ensure proper disposal of asbestos containing materials. Once the asbestos containing materials have been removed, other construction debris can be dealt with normally. If asbestos materials are not removed first, then all debris must be treated as though it contains asbestos and must be disposed in a specialized landfill, a far greater expense than normal disposal.
