What is asbestos and why is it a problem?

For more than 100 years, asbestos has been used to manufacture thousands of building materials, including floor and ceiling tiles, roof shingles, sheetrock, insulation, and more. The substance became popularized as a flame retardant. However, it took many years for the public to recognize it as a hazardous material.

When inhaled, asbestos can cause a wide range of health problems. Exposure to asbestos can lead to asbestosis, lung cancer, and other health complications. And because asbestos fibers are about 1/80th the size of a human hair, many victims do not realize they’ve been exposed to asbestos for many years.

In 1978, the state of Texas banned asbestos from commercial use. However, many buildings constructed before that time may still contain asbestos. Because of this, any business in Waco seeking to renovate their commercial building is required by Texas to complete an asbestos inspection before acquiring a building permit.

Contact ERI Consulting today if you need to schedule an asbestos inspection in Waco, TX.

  • Sheetrock

Should you test your building for asbestos?

Here are three reasons to schedule an asbestos inspection for your Waco area business.

Your building was constructed before 1980

Asbestos was banned in Texas in 1978. If your building was constructed before that time, your business faces a higher risk of exposure.

You need to acquire a building permit

In Texas, businesses cannot obtain a building permit to renovate their property without passing an asbestos inspection — no matter how new the building is.

You want to ensure your people are safe

Asbestos is a hazardous material. It causes many of your customers and employees anxiety. Give your people peace of mind by reassuring them your property is asbestos-free.

How It Works

Asbestos testing and removal services must be completed by a Licensed Texas Asbestos Consultant.
You can rest assured that our asbestos removal company will complete your project in accordance with EPA, OSHA, and TDSHS standards.

Here’s our process:

  • Learn about your property

    Before we start your project, we need a little bit of information about your property:

    • The age of your building
    • The building’s dimensions
    • The building’s location
    • The contact person
  • Write a proposal

    At ERI Consulting, we strive to serve our clients with honesty and integrity. You’ll receive an honest bid to review which will explain the work we will perform and the total cost to test your building for the presence of asbestos.

  • Schedule your inspection

    In accordance with Texas law, our analysts will obtain a sample of three materials likely to contain asbestos. Sample materials may include:

    • Floor tile
    • Sheetrock
    • Insulation
    • Popcorn ceiling
  • Test your samples

    Thanks to our local testing lab and on-site licensed analysts, we can usually provide a 5-7 day turnaround.

    We closely follow government regulations and test your samples with Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM).

  • Asbestos Abatement

    If asbestos is found in your building, remediation requires a:

    • Contractor
