Hazardous materials create significant health risks to you and to the people who live, work, or frequently visit the home or building you own. The word “hazardous” can be alarming, but more buildings than you may think can contain materials classified as hazardous. Some of the most common are lead, radon, illegal drugs, and asbestos, which are more likely to be found depending on the age of the home or building. A HAZMAT Inspection lets you know exactly what is inside your home or building.
What Is a HAZMAT Inspection?
A Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) Inspection involves a highly-trained, experienced professional coming to your home or building. They can identify materials that may be hazardous or have the potential to become hazardous. The inspection will involve a collection or materials or samples that may need to be analyzed further in a qualified laboratory. The HAZMAT professional team will put a plan together to remove all hazardous materials from your home or building before you move forward with purchasing or making renovations.
There are certain materials that present a specific type of danger to a building or residence and the people who live there or frequently spend time there. These materials are classified as hazardous materials.
When Should You Have a HAZMAT Inspection Done?
If you are buying a new home, considering a renovation, or performing any kind of demolition, you will need to have a hazardous materials inspection done. This is an in-depth assessment of the materials on the property that require removal and regulated disposal procedures. HAZMAT inspections are beneficial to property owners, construction companies, and different types of developers working on projects for residential or commercial properties.
A Hazardous Material Inspection is necessary for many situations. Some of the most common include situations like:
- Rennovating an older building
- Checking air quality in a commercial space
- If a general home or building inspection uncovers major issues
- Prior to any kind of demolition
What Are Typical Hazardous Materials Detected in a Home?
Hazardous materials refer to any material that can cause serious harm, health hazard, or injury to a person exposed to the material. There are many types of hazardous materials. Some of the most commonly known include materials like asbestos, radon, lead-based paint, biohazardous chemicals, and things like mercury. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies hazardous materials into three types: listed, characteristics, and mixed radiological and hazardous wastes.
Why Is It Important To Do a HAZMAT Inspection?
Since the main goal of doing a HAZMAT Inspection is to ensure and protect your health and environment, scheduling one in your home or building is essential. Many homes and buildings can contain hazardous materials. The possibility of finding hazardous materials varies depending on the building or house’s age and what was initially used in the construction process.
Additionally, it may be important to test for hazardous material in order to comply with necessary regulations and codes. You may also need to do one in order to provide information to different parties if there is a property appraisal. Suppose you are the one looking to purchase or renovate the property. In that case, you may want a HAZMAT Inspection in addition to a regular home inspection as a precautionary measure if there are any circumstances that lead you to think there could be hazardous materials.
Whether you are buying a new property or considering making renovations to an existing property, a professional inspection to look for hazardous materials helps to ensure the safety of your environment and overall health.
