Asbestos Professionals: Who are they and What can they do?

Asbestos professionals are trained in handling asbestos material.  The type of professional will depend on the type of product and what needs to be done to correct the problem.  You may hire a general asbestos contractor or, in some cases, a professional trained to handle specific products containing asbestos.  Asbestos professionals can conduct home/buisness inspections, take samples of suspected material, assess its condition, and advise about what corrections are needed and who is qualified to make these corrections.  Once again, material in good condition need not be sampled unless it is likely to be disturbed.  Professional correction or abatement contractors repair or remove asbestos materials.
