Asbestos Inspections & Surveys

Asbestos Inspections/Surveys are required to be conducted prior to renovation activities or demolition of a building.  Whether the building was constructed in 1905 or 2005, an asbestos survey is required to identify suspect asbestos containing building materials (ACBM).  Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) requires that a minimum of three samples be collected of each suspect ACBM.  The City of Houston and other Texas municipalities will typically require evidence of an asbestos survey prior to issuance of the building permit .
