We can offer testing to assess your risk of asbestos exposure.
New technologies and discoveries often reveal that some materials used in construction are harmful, including asbestos. While asbestos is more common in homes and buildings built before the 1980s, many newer homes and buildings were still constructed with asbestos-containing materials. If you are concerned about the presence of asbestos in your home or building, or if you want to test for it in a property you are interested in purchasing, we are the professionals you can trust to assess your risk of asbestos exposure.
Having asbestos-containing materials in a home or building isn’t always a major concern that requires immediate attention. If the asbestos remains undisturbed, risk of exposure is lower. However, if the asbestos-containing materials are friable, meaning they crumble easily, your risk of asbestos exposure is much higher. Disturbing an asbestos-filled popcorn ceiling during renovations, for example, can expose you to asbestos and cause harm.
Asbestos exposure through inhalation can cause respiratory issues, lung scarring, and lung cancer or pulmonary diseases. In fact, asbestos is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. behind smoking. Asbestos exposure can also be an issue if the mineral comes into contact with the skin, causing burning or itching.
