Asbestos Testing in Commercial Buildings

Asbestos is a hazardous material known for its adverse health effects, and detecting its presence requires meticulous attention to detail. With our team of EPA-certified inspectors, you can rest assured that your property will undergo a comprehensive assessment to identify any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) accurately.

At Home & Commercial Inspections, we pride ourselves on offering professional, thorough, and reliable commercial property asbestos inspections across Ohio.

Pre Purchase Inspections

If you are purchasing a commercial property, you should be concerned about asbestos. Generally, asbestos-containing material that is in good condition and not disturbed (e.g., through renovating or wear and tear) will not release asbestos fibers.

However, building materials that contain asbestos may release the dangerous fibers if they are broken, damaged, or not properly removed from the site. Fibers can also be released into the air during renovations when materials are repaired, cut, torn, sanded, sawed, drilled, or scraped.

Asbestos Advice for Commercial Building Owners

Asbestos was once commonly used in construction and can be harmful if not handled correctly during renovations, demolitions, or regular maintenance. To manage asbestos safely in commercial buildings, it’s important to follow strict federal rules, use accredited professionals, and set up thorough maintenance programs.

The EPA provides information for owners and managers of buildings that contain asbestos. The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) says that anyone working with asbestos in schools or buildings must be trained and accredited under a program as strict as the EPA’s Model Accreditation Plan (MAP).

Home & Commercial Inspections team is fully qualified and compliant with these regulations, and our inspections will be part of your operations, management, and maintenance plans.

By using good practices and keeping up with regulations, we can reduce the risks of asbestos exposure and keep building occupants and workers safe.
