Asbestos exposure is very hazardous, but it hasn’t become mainstream until recently. With the recent lawsuits, documentaries, and news articles about asbestos exposure, it is no surprise that people are becoming more concerned. Asbestos fibers are known to cause illnesses such as cancer and possibly death. Asbestos exposure also doesn’t show signs immediately. It can take decades before any symptoms occur. How do you protect you and your family from the dangers of asbestos exposure? Asbestos testing is the only way to determine if your property has any asbestos-containing materials present in your home.

Asbestos Testing

Asbestos testing is a comprehensive test that is completed on your property by a certified, licensed hazardous materials professional. They will take samples from areas of your property that are then sent to a lab. The lab will analyze the samples and determine if your property contains any asbestos. If it does, you must have the asbestos removed as soon as possible. This is for you and your family’s safety. Asbestos testing is highly accurate and should be completed before purchasing a home, starting a remodel, or selling a home.

If you will be doing any of the above this year or in the future, it is vital that you have an asbestos test completed on the property. This simple test can ensure your safety from asbestos exposure and the horrible diseases that can occur. Asbestos-related illnesses are now being found in some children, meaning they are being exposed most likely in their homes, the one place that should be safe for them. While you are completing the routine fire alarm tests, air-conditioning maintenance, and other home inspections to start the new year, plan to have a professional company come to your home to complete a comprehensive asbestos test. This is one test that could save your life.
