Asbestos Testing

Asbestos testing is crucial to determine if a part of your home contains asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). Asbestos, a highly carcinogenic mineral, was widely used in American buildings before the 1970s due to its excellent insulation and fire resistance properties.

However, identifying materials that contain asbestos is impossible without proper testing. Therefore, asbestos testing typically involves collecting samples of suspected ACMs by a certified asbestos tester and sending them to a laboratory for analysis.

We are certified asbestos testers and can help you determine if your home contains ACMs. We will collect samples of suspected ACMs and send them to a laboratory for analysis. We will also provide you with a report of the results and recommendations for how to deal with any ACMs that are found.

Why Is Asbestos Testing So Important?

Asbestos was widely used when building homes for decades, and it is extremely carcinogenic and dangerous, especially when asbestos fibers are breathed in.

Breathing in asbestos can cause mesothelioma (a very dangerous type of lung cancer), as well as heighten the risks of other types of lung cancer. Another associated condition is known as “asbestosis,” which is shortness of breath caused by scarring of the lungs due to inhaled asbestos fibers.

If you think your home may have been built with asbestos-containing materials, it’s imperative to have it inspected immediately to ensure that the material is safe, and that you avoid these potentially lethal health conditions.
