Collecting and Sampling Potentially Hazardous Materials
When planning a small renovation or a full home deconstruction, the result of the materials collected will give you the best opportunity to plan your budget depending on the age of your home. Knowing the scope of your renovation is all we need, to collect the proper samples to ensure all city bylaws are met and have our clients make the most informed choices based on our finding.
Whether you are planning a small renovation or a full home deconstruction, the sources of potentially containing asbestos materials must be identified, sampled and tested. The findings of these tested samples are the main determinant of the value of your abatement. Specifically when undertaking a renovation, it is crucial to have confidence that your home has been sufficiently sampled and tested in order to protect you and your family from any dangerous materials.
When possible it is best to collect all samples in one thorough and responsible sweep. This is not only best for the safety of everyone involved but also provides an opportunity to develop a more realistic financial plan for your construction budget. We understand that when asbestos is a potential concern, there is a smarter more responsible practice that can in fact save you money. That’s the Progressive way.
