Inspect water-damaged materials for asbestos and lead
If there is no pre-existing information about building materials impacted by water damage, it is advisable to have a Vermont-licensed inspector conduct an inspection for asbestos and lead.
Use licensed abatement contractors if necessary
If it is necessary to demolish or remove water damaged building materials that may contain - or are suspected to contain - asbestos or lead, the use of licensed abatement contractors may be required, and a permit may be necessary.
Contractors may need to apply for the necessary abatement permits or alternate work practices.
