An asbestos inspection is when an individual inspects a building or facility for the presence or location of Asbestos-Containing Material (ACM) or suspected ACM. ACM is defined as material that contains greater than 1% asbestos. Suspected ACM is material that is assumed to be ACM but has not been sampled and analyzed for asbestos content. An asbestos inspection also includes re-examining a building or facility to identify the presence or location of additional, suspected or existing ACM.
Anytime an owner of a public or commercial building will be disturbing any building materials during the course of a renovation or demolition. The owner is required to have the materials surveyed for asbestos by a licensed asbestos professional. A survey is required regardless of the age of the building. All cities are required to ask for the survey before issuing a permit.
