Asbestos air sampling should always be done by a trained, experienced licensed neutral third party while asbestos containment and engineering controls are still onsite. Download: John R. Riera CV.
- Containment should never be removed until lab results that show asbestos fibers to be below the detection level. This statement pertains to ALL environmental contaminants.
Your architect can also sign off on an affidavit that no asbestos materials were used in construction. This will eliminate all asbestos questions about your building, and no testing or abatement would be needed. After the asbestos has been removed and appropriate professional asbestos testing has been done and lab results received, a clearance document is created. This document should stay with the building to resolve any future questions regarding the asbestos removal of the areas of abatement. There are several different methods of asbestos clearance air sampling. Please review all other pages in the Asbestos section of this website, or call John, who has a CAC license, and he will implement the correct testing strategies for your asbestos abatement clearance.
