We can help you make sure you comply with all the relevant asbestos laws with our testing and surveying services.
Since the late 1980s, asbestos laws have been in place to prevent this dangerous mineral from being used in construction. Before then, asbestos was widely used in things like insulation, textured paint, adhesives, tiles, roofing shingles, and more. It was so popular because it has a natural resistance to heat and moisture, but once it was officially discovered that it is extremely dangerous if it becomes airborne or gets into people’s lungs, it was banned from new construction materials. Asbestos laws have since been put into place to ensure that those who own buildings that may contain asbestos are taking the appropriate safety standards to protect occupants’ health and wellbeing.
At Coastal Air Assessments, we’re very familiar with asbestos laws, and we provide testing and surveys that are designed to help ensure your building follows them. It’s also important to note that asbestos laws also regulate the handling and transporting of materials that contain asbestos, so unless you are a trained professional, you should never attempt to dispose of such items on your own. These laws can also impact your ability to renovate or demolish a building that was constructed prior to 1989, so getting the proper testing before performing any work is essential.
If you need help ensuring that your building complies with local, state, and national asbestos laws, we encourage you to contact our team. We provide asbestos testing throughout West Palm Beach, Florida to help ensure that everyone who lives or works in an older building is safe and healthy.
