Asbestos Testing

Asbestos has historically been used in various applications for its durability and fire resistance. It can be found in a large number of building materials used both indoors and outdoors, including; carpets, glues, insulation, tiles, ventilation tubes and wall paneling. During renovation and/or demolition asbestos can be released to the air which presents a human and environmental exposure risk.

The EPA states three of the major health effects associated with asbestos exposure are:
  • lung cancer
  • mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that is found in the thin lining of the lung, chest and the abdomen and heart
  • asbestosis, a serious progressive, long-term, non-cancer disease of the lungs

Asbestos can be a problem in your home if you are doing a remodel or if there is asbestos in a material that is deteriorating.  To read more Click here to read more about asbestos from the EPA site.
