Common Mistakes People Make When Hiring Abatement Contractors
Like most homes and buildings, asbestos material has been used over the years as thermal insulation. However, it must be checked for any signs of damage due to wear and tear as it can turn potentially hazardous to residents when inhaled or consumed. For this reason, it’s paramount that you hire professionals trained to clear these materials safely. They need to be from an accredited company and adhere to rules and regulations when handling such high-risk materials.
Unfortunately, like most laypeople, you may be unaware of the gravity of this cleaning process and may hire an unlicensed or unqualified contractor risking the health of the people around you. To help you avoid succumbing to pitfalls that could prove costly to your health and wallet, EC Abatement Inc has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make when hiring abatement contractors.
1. Choosing the wrong contractor
The benefits of hiring the right professionals will result in you saving thousands of dollars and months of unwanted stress from an inexperienced, shoddy job. So, take the time to review your potential contractor. Find out if they have the right credentials? Are they bonded and insured? And what kind of equipment and methods do they use?
2. Picking price over quality
When you look for the lowest bid contractor, you’ll most likely get a low-quality service. Instead, choose a contractor that offers quality services and affordable prices so that you don’t compromise on your premises.
3. Failing to ask the questions
Always be communicative with your prospective contractor so that both are in line with the job. Ask questions about what service they offer and what are your expectations from them. Doing so, you will receive a satisfying service and a completed project on time!
4. Not being transparent
Layout all the necessary information to the contractor before the abatement project commences. This will enable them to focus on the right areas and helps quicken the process.
5. Rushing with the job
Never rush with a crucial job that involves the removal of hazardous material. There are certain procedures that the technicians need to follow so that your premise is completely rid of the harmful particles.
6. Skimping on references
Always do a check with references, its the best way to get a glimpse about a contractor’s work when it comes to environmental services. Ask with family and friends who might have enlisted their services or request references of past customers from the contractor so that you make an informed decision.
