An asbestos detection service goes to a site and inspects that asbestos contractors are following proper procedures during demolition or waste disposal.

Normally, an infected area has to be tarped or contained properly to prevent the asbestos from contaminating more areas or getting elsewhere. A containment location usually features three things: barriers, the viewport, and the negative air. Once asbestos has been properly removed, it's considered waste and has to be eliminated correctly. Normally, that material will go to a landfill and be treated according to EPA standards.
