Once the go-to material for creating building components that ranged from floor tiles to ceiling insulation, asbestos was found in the early 1970s to contribute to a wide variety of breathing disorders and was banned from use in the United States and elsewhere. That means if your house was constructed prior to 1980, there’s a good chance that asbestos building materials were used in the construction. You don’t need to worry about living with asbestos unless you plan to remodel or demolish part of your home. Asbestos only becomes hazardous when it’s disturbed. However, if you’re thinking of adding that new kitchen or tearing off a portion of your house to make room for that new great room, you need the services of a good asbestos testing company.
What is asbestos testing?
Asbestos testing is designed to help you learn whether you have building materials in your home that were made using asbestos. Such materials include sheet vinyl, popcorn ceiling material, insulation and exterior cement tile siding, just to name a few. A professional asbestos testing company can help you make this determination quickly and professionally.
