The Mack Group, LLC has developed this page to try to answer some of the questions our clients ask regarding means, methods, and costs regarding asbestos abatement, asbestos removal, floor covering removal, interior demolition, remediation, decontamination, and mold cleanup.

Factors that affect the cost for proper removal and disposal include location of the asbestos containing materials (is it elevated, in a crawlspace, etc.), composition (i.e. floor tile, transite, insulation, etc.), distance to nearest landfill.
