As the large largest city in Massachusetts, Boston is home to many schools and old residential and commercial buildings that may potentially contain asbestos. In addition, it’s a densely populated metropolitan area where many residents might get affected once toxic fibers of asbestos become airborne. This makes it crucial to make sure that facilities are free of environmental hazards including asbestos.

Below are the reasons why you need to conduct asbestos testing:
1. For Compliance
The EPA and OSHA have laws and regulations requiring asbestos surveys and inspection before any renovation or demolition activities in all buildings, structures, and installations except small residential buildings. One EPA asbestos-related law is the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) which requires the inspection of shool buildings and the creation of asbestos response actions to reduce or prevent asbestos hazards. Also, OSHA requires testing for asbestos to ensure the safety of employees and other occupants in the workplace.
If you fail to comply with these laws, you might face costly penalties and fines. Making sure you follow federal and local regulations will protect you from unnecessary liabilities.
2. To Protect Your Property
Although EPA has been regulating asbestos, it’s not yet completely banned and may still be present in many buildings, especially old structures. If asbestos materials in these buildings are disturbed or damaged, exposed individuals can develop serious diseases like mesothelioma, asbestosis, and other deadly cancers. Conducting an asbestos survey can help prevent these from happening and may even increase the value of your property.
3. To Develop Effective Abatement Asbestos Plans
Aside from identifying the presence of asbestos, we can also identify the location, condition, and amount of asbestos that might be affected when renovation or demolition is done. We inspect the building thoroughly before you start your work and can help you develop an effective abatement plan that will determine what areas to remove among others. Thus, guaranteeing safety on the site while construction activities are ongoing.
Asbestos materials can be found in the following:
Another requirement of the AHERA EPA law is that asbestos professionals, including inspectors, working with asbestos materials should be accredited. In addition to this, local and state agencies may also have standards regarding asbestos testing and removal. So if you won’t hire a certified professional, you might incur liabilities. Moreover, asbestos is an extremely dangerous material that should be handled with care to avoid asbestos fibers from becoming airborne. Certified professionals can help prevent further exposure by conducting asbestos testing in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
