Asbestos removal is not something that should be taken lightly, it is important that you choose only the best company to help you because your family’s life is on the line if they fail to deliver on their promises. If you choose a company that did not perform their duties well, then you just wasted a lot of your money and you are still under the threat of exposure to asbestos.
If you want to make sure that your money is put to good use, here are some of the mistakes that you should avoid making:
Hiring the company that has little to no experience
Though there may be some startup companies that are actually good at asbestos removal, they are very few and far in between. Your best bet is to go with the company who has been in business for longer and has a better track record than all the rest. Even though their services may cost a bit more than the others, you can be sure that you are getting the best kind of service that money can buy.
Hiring the first company that you find
There are many companies out there that provide asbestos remediation and abatement services, and they are not all equal in terms of service quality. For instance, if there are two companies who have the been in business for the same amount of time, that does not necessarily mean that they can provide the same kind of service; one will always be better than the other. To find out which of the two is “better” you need to do some investigating yourself; look for customer reviews using search engines and social media networks, you will surely find some usable information.
Not getting a second opinion
Pretty much like getting a medical diagnosis, it is better if you get the opinion of another asbestos removal company to make sure that the recommendation is actually correct. There are some companies who take advantage of the desperation of people so they recommend doing a more expensive procedure even if it is completely unnecessary.
You can prevent getting scammed simply by having an inspector from another company check out the situation in your house and wait for his report. If the two recommendations somehow line up, then it is most probably the right thing to do.
Hiring a company that does not insure its workers
This is pretty much common sense when hiring all kinds of contractors, but there are still people who still make this mistake. If a worker gets into an accident in your home and the company that he works for does not provide insurance coverage, then you are liable for his medical expenses.
