Asbestos Testing and Inspections

If you fear that materials in your home may contain harmful asbestos fibers, don’t delay!

Asbestos is a mineral fiber that has been used commonly in a variety of building construction materials for insulation and as a fire-retardant. EPA and CPSC have banned several asbestos products. Manufacturers have also voluntarily limited uses of asbestos. Today, asbestos is most commonly found in older homes, in pipe and furnace insulation materials, asbestos shingles, mill board, textured paints and other coating materials, and floor tiles. Elevated concentrations of airborne asbestos can occur after asbestos – containing materials are disturbed by cutting, sanding or other remodeling activities. Improper attempts to remove these materials can release asbestos fibers into the air in homes, increasing asbestos levels and endangering people living in those homes.

Our licensed and experienced professionals will provide professional, cost-effective services related to any asbestos identification concerns you may have in your home, office or dwelling. Large or small, we can properly handle the filings, requirements and the delicate nature of any asbestos issue. We will give you, the client peace of mind knowing that your project is being handled by a professional team that’s been around for over 15 years.

Health Effects

No immediate symptoms, but long-term risk of chest and abdominal cancers and lung diseases. Smokers are at higher risk of developing asbestos – induced lung cancer. The most dangerous asbestos fibers are too small to be visible. After they are inhaled, they can remain and accumulate in the lungs. Asbestos can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma (a cancer of the chest and abdominal linings), and asbestosis (irreversible lung scarring that can be fatal). Symptoms of these diseases do not show up until many years after exposure began. Most people with asbestos – related diseases were exposed to elevated concentrations on the job; some developed disease from exposure to clothing and equipment brought home from job sites. Elevated levels can occur in homes where asbestos – containing materials are damaged or disturbed.

If you think your home may have asbestos, don’t panic!

Usually it is best to leave asbestos material that is in good condition alone. Generally, material in good condition will not release asbestos fiber. There is no danger unless fibers are released and inhaled into the lungs. Do not cut, rip, or sand asbestos – containing materials. If asbestos material is more than slightly damaged, or if you are going to make changes in your home that might disturb it, repair or removal by a professional is needed. Before you have your house remodeled, find out whether asbestos materials are present. Our licensed asbestos testing team will provide professional, cost-effective services related to any asbestos identification concerns.

So how can you improve the indoor air quality in your home?

First, have your occupied area being the home office or dwelling inspected and/or tested to determine which environmental hazard may be present so that a proper course of action can be taken. Typical courses of action include stopping or reducing exposure to what is causing the adverse health reactions. Mold Authority has been helping people with Air Quality issues for over 18 years and strive to provide A1 services. Our testing methods ensure that any issues present at the property will be discovered and a real solution will be provided in order to permanently correct the problems.
