Common Mistakes When Considering Hazardous Materials in Your Property
When buying a home, planning to remodel an existing home, or thinking about renovation projects, an issue that is almost certain to come up with houses built before 1990 is asbestos or lead contamination. Hazardous material specialists are certified and have a comprehensive understanding of biological waste, chemical substances, and toxic materials. A hazardous materials contractor is skilled in dangerous materials identification, handling, storage, and adequate transport and disposal.
Despite this knowledge, we sometimes take it for granted that our homes are safe and not detrimental to our health in any way. We underestimate the risks posed by substances like asbestos and radon in the air we breathe. We ignore lead contamination in our water and wonder why we have allergies and sicknesses when we have mould thriving in the basement or crawl spaces.
To help you avoid some basic errors that could prove costly, ABI Hazmat Corp has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make when considering hazardous materials:
DIY home assessment
Hiring a contractor who does not care
Handling hazardous materials without the know-how
Attempting to handle the project themselves
As mentioned before, houses built before 1990 can have various harmful materials used during construction. A mistake we often see is customers jumping into a renovation project and unknowingly disturbing the asbestos or lead, making it harder to clean-up and remove, which adds to overall costs.
