If you suspect that your home has hazardous materials, you want the matter dealt with as quickly as possible. Asbestos, mold, radon, and lead are serious threats to the health of the people who live in the home. Sometimes these issues may be present when you purchase the home like having asbestos flooring or lead paint, while at other times, they develop later, such as mold growth after a burst pipe. If you suspect any of these materials are present in your home, call an abatement team that deals with that particular issue.

Each material has its own set of abatement standards and testing, so the costs vary depending on the substance you are attempting to eliminate. In most cases, the labor for these jobs ranges from $15 per square foot for inspection and remediation to over $10,000 for removing a material from your entire home.
