Asbestos Services

STC routinely provides the following asbestos services:

  • Inspection and testing of buildings for asbestos containing materials.
  • Asbestos consulting and air monitoring during asbestos abatement.

What STC does not do is the actual asbestos abatement. This is the job of the asbestos abatement contractor and the regulations in Texas do not allow a firm to do both jobs on any given site.

The inspection process is fairly straight forward. If you call us and give us a brief property description (e.g. size and age of the building), we can give you a proposal for collecting and analyzing samples. Once the samples are collected and analyzed, we give you a report. The report will tell what buildings have asbestos and the estimated square footage or linear footage of the areas.

If you have asbestos in your building, you have some choices. These options are:

  • Remove (abate) the asbestos.
  • Manage it properly

If you choose to simply manage the asbestos, you'll need an Operation and Management (O&M) Plan to be in full compliance with the regulations of the Texas State Department of State Health Services (TDSHS). STC is a licensed asbestos consulting firm that provides O&M plans.

If you choose to remove the asbestos, you'll need to engage a licensed asbestos abatement contractor. In conjunction with a site visit, STC's asbestos inspection report is usually sufficient to get quotes from contractors for the abatement cost. Further, in most cases, you'll also need STC to provide the contractor with a work plan and conduct air monitoring during the abatement process. And, if you trying to budget for asbestos abatement project, don't forget the TDSHS fees.
