Asbestos Testing – What You Can’t See Can Hurt You
Asbestos is a material that enjoyed widespread use around the world in many applications, including fireproofing, soundproofing, and insulation. Despite its effectiveness and low cost to manufacture, asbestos has fallen out of favor due to health concerns that include lung cancer and mesothelioma.
The most dangerous asbestos fibers are too small to be seen. Once inhaled, they lodge in the lungs forever. Our asbestos inspectors are highly trained and certified to conduct asbestos testing in residential and commercial settings.
Asbestos Is Still a Concern
Many countries have banned the use of asbestos outright, but several, including the United States, still employ its use. Asbestos is mostly found in older homes and factories, and can be highly dangerous and even deadly if disturbed.
