INSPECTION & TESTING
Asbestos can be difficult to identify in your home or office. It is easily overlooked during renovations when there are many other things on your mind. Our team of certified inspectors is trained to spot even the smallest clues of asbestos so you will know exactly what you’re dealing with and how best to proceed moving forward. We offer the most comprehensive asbestos inspection services in the state. We use only state-of-the-art equipment that detects any potential danger from airborne asbestos fibers if it exists at an acceptable level for workers and homeowners alike.
Is Asbestos Dangerous?
Exposure to asbestos can lead to numerous respiratory disorders and fatal diseases, such as lung cancer and stomach cancer. A few asbestos materials can disintegrate into small fibers, which float in the air. As a result, we can inhale these deadly fibers without knowing. That’s because these tiny fibers are invisible to the naked eye. The worst part is that they can even pass through the filters of your regular vacuum
cleaner to get back into the air.
If anyone in your home, office, studio, school, hospital, or restaurant inhales these deadly fibers, they can lodge in the tissue for a long time. Years of exposure to asbestos can result in mesothelioma or cancer.
How to Detect if You Have Asbestos in Your Home
An average homeowner or a property manager can’t detect the presence of asbestos. Only qualified and licensed asbestos inspectors can determine whether a material contains asbestos.
Many public structures such as government housing projects and schools can contain asbestos. Any
building or home constructed before the 1980s must schedule an asbestos inspection to identify the
presence of these deadly fibers. Here are the most common parts of your living space where they can be present.
- Steam pipes
- Roof Shingles
- Floor tiles
- Spray-on insulation
- Textured paint
There are several ways how you can be vulnerable to asbestos exposure in your home or workplace.
Replacing an old pipe, drilling through drywall, or DIY renovation projects can expose residents to
