We hired Accustar to remove the asbestos lined duct work from our home. These are just a few of the photos I took after the Accustar employee said they were all done. You be the judge if you feel this was responsible handling of a toxic substance and if this is the type of work you want done in your home.
You may wonder if we got a good "deal"? No, we got 3 quotes from several companies and they were all within a small margin of difference. Accustar was in the middle in terms of cost.
We paid half the work up front as required, and we haven't paid the rest nor has Accustar demanded this.
We lost all trust in them and hired another company to finish the abatement. I am furious that my young children and wife were exposed to this mess.
Unfortunately, this industry isn't regulated in the way you would expect. Third parties offer certification training, but there is no license to practice - meaning no licensing board to report bad work to and no serious penalties or accountability for bad work.
After several communications and months of waiting for this company to make this right by taking ownership of the additional expenses we incurred, we still haven't received any kind of intent from them. Emails go unanswered and we play the escalation game.
I hope others find this helpful.
