JD Environmental, LLC provides the option to send samples to our laboratory for them to be analyzed for asbestos or mold. This option is recommended only for projects that are small renovations, such as flooring installations. Any other projects, such as multiple room or whole house renovations, demolitions, or fire burns, would require a full asbestos inspection.

We professionally inspect and take samples of any possible asbestos containing building materials.
Pricing of inspections includes a base of $300.00 for the inspection and $15.00 per sample analyzed with 24-Hour turnaround times. This not only includes the inspection itself, but also the travel time to the site being inspected; any necessary paperwork; shipping and analyzing fees for samples taken; and other fees pertaining to the licensing of our inspectors.
We typically use SanAir Technologies Laboratory located in Powhatan, VA for the testing and analyzing of our samples. After our office receives the samples from our inspector, a Chain of Custody (COC) is filled out and the samples are shipped overnight via FedEx. The lab typically receives the package of samples around 11 AM (CST), which is when the turnaround time begins.
If you would like samples within a 3-Hour (PCM) or 4-Hour (TEM) turnaround window, then we do charge an expediting fee of $15.00 per sample, as well. These sample results are usually received no earlier than 2 PM (CST) once the lab receives the samples.
No two projects are the same; therefore "one price does not fit all." We will evaluate your situation upon receiving the test results from SanAir's lab, itemize the services needed and describe your options. We provide accurate, realistic, and reasonable estimates.
Should no asbestos be found during the inspection we will provide you with a letter explaining this and only the inspection fee ($300.00) will be billed to you.
Should no asbestos be found in samples sent to SanAir's lab, then a letter and report will be provided to you explaining this. Billing of the services provided will then be based off of the inspection fee ($300.00) and how many samples were analyzed ($15/sample) and this varies by site.
Each of your options will be explained and discussed with you. After reviewing your options, and depending on your plans for the site, you will be able to make an informed decision that meets your goals.
