Asbestos can be found in almost all types of building materials in residential, commercial, industrial and school settings. A properly trained, experienced and certified inspector can help identify likely locations, collect samples and develop a inspection report that clearly identifies asbestos in your building.
In Wisconsin, asbestos is regulated by a number of different agencies including OSHA, DHS and the DNR. In addition, all Schools are regulated by AHERA.
Friable asbestos (able to be crumbled to a powder by hand pressure) can be dangerous to building occupants and employees. A facility must maintain asbestos containing building materials in a good, non-friable condition.
Prior to any construction or renovation work, all building materials, regardless of age, should be tested for the presence of asbestos.

We provide asbestos project design, bidding and management services for all types of asbestos projects. We can also provide air monitoring during or after removal to verify a safe removal project.
