Do it Right the First Time

 You’re not alone, even big ski resorts in North America have to deal with safely disposing of asbestos in building materials. Buildings that were constructed before the mid 1980’s probably have asbestos contained in them and now that those buildings are nearing the end of their life cycle, the responsibility lies with the new purchaser. If you purchase commercial or residential property and have plans to demolish the site, you will have to hire professionals like 24/7 Restoration, to ensure that hazardous materials like asbestos are removed safely. If you neglect to do so, you are ultimately liable for any consequences down the road.

An Idaho ski and snowboard park recently learned the hard way that they are responsible for removing asbestos from buildings they demolished on their property. The company expanded and bought property next to their existing park. The company did have an inspection completed on the buildings that were on the property. The inspection found asbestos in the buildings and their bid for abatement was rejected by the ski company, opting to do the demolition themselves. Ultimately, the company did not remove the asbestos safely or notify the governing body of their actions. A public complaint was delivered to government officials in December of 2014 and they investigated the ski company’s actions. Ultimately, the ski company now has to control dust from the site and ensure that asbestos has been removed safely with no danger to the public.

If you demolish a residential or commercial property knowing there is asbestos contained in the building materials, you are liable and responsible to safely dispose of the hazardous material. Neglecting to do so can end up costing you substantially more than the cost of having the contractors at 24/7 Restoration remove it in the first place.

If you’re looking into buying property, have the contractors at 24/7 Restoration inspect the building for hazardous materials like asbestos. In the event of contaminants being found on the property, 24/7 Restoration will safely remove and dispose of materials like asbestos and can also demolition the site for you.
