I am looking to remodel home in Boston Edison built in 1921. Any recommendations on who can check if this house has Asbestos? Thank you!!
Any home, no matter how "new" the construction was, could have asbestos-containing building materials (asbestos is NOT banned in the US). Michigan like most states requires Asbestos Inspectors to EPA Accredited, ie: Licensed and annually updated. Expect to pay $700-$1000 to thoroughly inspect & test suspect materials in a vintage home. I'm no longer living in metro-Detroit, but you can email me at [email protected] @ Pete Yankee Environmental for guidance & referrals.
I used a company called Go Green Contracting back in 2016. Their number is 313-202-9025. They were great! I think I found them by asking for referrals on the NextDoor app.
I am rehabbing a house in Southwest Detroit but I live on Atkinson. Good luck, neighbor!
