Asbestos Information

The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has very specific rules regarding the handling and disposal of materials containing asbestos. DEQ also requires an asbestos survey be performed by an accredited inspector to determine the presence of asbestos in or on a structure prior to any demolition activities.

The certificate is valid for one year from the date of the inspection and/or abatement.
