Property damage requiring the help of an asbestos abatement specialist is often complex; consuming time and hefty insurance funds. Removing asbestos from a Residential or Commercial Building requires considerable resources to mitigate, including site surveys to identify asbestos-containing materials, soil sampling, reporting, asbestos prioritization plans, asbestos abatement plans, and an asbestos clearance test. Asbestos can easily become a costly job as the material is utilized in a variety of building materials including:
BUILDING EXTERIORS: Window caulking, window glazing, facade expansion joints, lintel caulk, stucco
FLOORING: ACM pavers, Vinyl tile, wood tile mastic
INTERIOR SURFACES: Plaster walls, ceilings, fireproofing materials, soundproofing materials, firestop materials, fire curtains, fire doors, popcorn textured ceilings
MECHANICAL: HVAC equipment, piping, ducting, boiler rooms, mechanical rooms, HP steam
ROOFING: Wall tar, lintel tar, spandrel beam waterproofing, canopies, membrane, flashings
Asbestos abatement requires careful attention to detail as the carcinogenic nature of the material poses many risks for both the client and abatement company, if not cleaned up correctly. Between the complexity of the actual job and the time needed to clean up the asbestos-containing materials (ACM) correctly, abatement companies must ensure sufficient funds are available for the task at hand. In addition, asbestos companies’ risk being at the mercy of an insurance company to quickly attain funds for their customers and execute the proposed scope. That’s where a public adjuster becomes a necessary resource to help the policyholder speed things up and ensure they get every dollar they are entitled to for asbestos testing and abatement!
