What Factors Are Affecting Your Asbestos Removal Cost?
Posted in Asbestos Removal, on April 04, 2022
Before you start a renovation to your property, big or small, or conduct maintenance, it may occur to you that there is a potential asbestos risk. Asbestos is a hazardous mineral that historically has been used in many construction materials. Before interfering with any possible asbestos-containing material, the safest course of action is asbestos removal. Because asbestos removal is most often unplanned, the cost can leave property owners second-guessing whether they really need abatement. Before you incur asbestos removal costs, you can schedule a free inspection at Canada’s Restoration Services to determine if the mineral is actually a risk on your property.
If technicians uncover asbestos in a friable, asbestos removal is essential to protect your health and the health of all other occupants. At Canada’s Restoration Services, we offer free or low-interest financing to help qualifying property owners manage the cost of asbestos removal.
Here are some factors that could be affecting your asbestos removal cost.
Asbestos removal costs will vary depending on the size and the type of area that needs abatement. Typically, smaller square footage of asbestos-containing materials will cost less than larger areas that require asbestos removal. While this is a general rule of thumb, asbestos abatement contractors will also factor in the difficulty or accessibility of asbestos-containing materials into the cost because of their relation to safety and time. Pipe and duct wrap asbestos removal is different from attic asbestos removal. To be sure about asbestos removal costs, it’s a good idea to contact the best asbestos removal company in your area for a quote before making any decisions.
Naturally, any asbestos on your property is a risk, but depending on the type of asbestos and the concentration of asbestos, the risk level increases. As a result, so do asbestos removal costs. There are three main types of asbestos: white asbestos, blue asbestos, and brown asbestos. White asbestos is the most commonly used version of the mineral in construction and the least risky. If asbestos-containing materials are friable or likely to decay, increasing its associated risk. Furthermore, if there is over 1% asbestos concentration, the risk level will also go up. The lower the risk, the less asbestos removal will cost.
Asbestos Removal Equipment & Resources
Depending on various factors like the location of asbestos and its risk on site, asbestos abatement contractors will have to use different types of equipment and asbestos testing to make sure the process goes smoothly and safely. In high-risk asbestos removal, third-party hygienists must be on-site to ensure that abatement is effective and there is no conflict of interest.
