When it comes to asbestos abatement, lead paint removal, and mold remediation, you may think that certification is all that matters. After all, remediation specialists all master the same processes and comply with the same laws, don’t they?
Not so fast. Commercial and residential cleanup services have some major differences. If you choose a company that’s not experienced in the type of project you need done, you may leave yourself and others exposed to dangerous toxins.
Important Differences Between Commercial and Residential Abatement
Although the use of certain materials is strictly regulated in both residential and commercial building projects, different types of properties have different compliance requirements. It takes a specialist trained in both residential and commercial properties to know where to test for contamination, which building materials may contain lead or asbestos, and how to safely remove the threat to a building’s occupants.
These are just a few of the differences between residential and commercial abatement projects:
- Commercial projects are more complex than residential projects. Your abatement specialist should be familiar with abatement for buildings, contaminated soil, water systems, and structures such as bridges, overpasses, or historically-significant properties
- Commercial projects require specific documentation. Although all abatement projects require a strict adherence to federal regulations, commercial properties must be especially careful to record compliance. Hiring an abatement specialist who is experienced in commercial projects means working with someone who not only knows the proper testing and disposal techniques, but also the documentation needed to prevent a lawsuit down the line
