Survey / Inspection

What You Need to Know about Building Inspections & Surveys

Asbestos, even in small amounts, can pose significant health threats. As a result, state and federal regulations have set rigorous guidelines for managing its presence during home renovation and demolition work. These regulations require a certified professional to perform a thorough building inspection (AHERA Good Faith Inspection) to safeguard the contractors’ and property owners’ health and well-being onsite.

What is a Building Survey/Inspection? 

The primary objective of a building inspection/survey is to detect the presence of any asbestos-containing materials (ACM) or presumed asbestos-containing materials (PACM) within your property before any construction or renovation work begins. 

The Significance of AHERA Certified Inspectors

It’s essential to remember that a certified building inspector, accredited under the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), must conduct the Asbestos Good Faith Inspection.

This inspection is a crucial step that is mandatory for your permit application to be approved. It ensures that asbestos is safely managed and removed to mitigate the risk of exposure to contractors scheduled to be onsite performing their jobs.
