Asbestos experts can perform home inspections, collect samples of suspected material, assess its quality, and decide on what repairs are necessary and who is eligible to do them. Material in good condition, once again, does not need to be sampled unless it is likely to be disturbed. Asbestos compounds are repaired or removed by skilled correction or abatement contractors. Asbestos practitioners may take training courses offered by the federal government all over the country. Any state and municipal agencies also provide or mandate training and credential programs. Inquire about asbestos practitioners’ completion of federal or state-approved training.
