What is Asbestos?
A naturally occurring material, asbestos was once utilized predominantly for its heat-resistant properties. Primarily used as building insulation, once exposed to the air, asbestos can be toxic for human exposure. As particles in the insulation are exposed to air and break down, they become trapped in the body, posing an extremely hazardous and carcinogenic threat to human health. People are typically at risk of exposure during remodels, which is why it is crucial to have your home or building assessed before changes are made.

At PHIS, we are able to complete all of your home inspection needs. This includes:
Taking both indoor and outdoor air samples provides us with a background. We continue to monitor the air inside and outside to ensure containment of the asbestos is maintained during the process of remediation.
Our project management capabilities ensure any remediation project is completed correctly and safety is maintained during the entire duration of the project.
We are able to act as third-party supervisors in mitigation jobs completed by other companies. This aids in providing an unbiased, additional set of eyes to ensure all processes are completed correctly and safely.
