We offer thorough, accurate asbestos testing services to help you keep everyone in your building safe from this hazardous material.
While the negative effects of asbestos have been conclusively proven today, in the past, they were less well understood, and for many manufacturers, the benefits of the material outweighed any health risks it posed. Asbestos is excellent for insulation, fireproofing, and much more, and until it was banned in the U.S. in 1989, it was widely used in all kinds of building materials.
Asbestos poses problems for home and business owners today, as disturbing materials containing asbestos can release sharp, microscopic fibers into the air, which puts everyone in the building at risk of developing serious health problems such as mesothelioma, a type of lung cancer. If your home or business was built prior to the asbestos ban, we at Coastal Air Assessments strongly encourage you to schedule asbestos testing before you begin any renovations.
We’ll begin our asbestos testing services by examining every part of your building, paying extra attention to the areas most likely to contain this material, such as the insulation or popcorn ceilings. Our team has extensive experience in dealing with asbestos, and we will make sure to wear robust personal protective equipment and avoid disturbing the asbestos to prevent anyone from inhaling its damaging fibers. Once our testing process is complete, we’ll explain our findings and go over the next steps you should take, if any.
Our team is proud to serve the West Palm Beach, Florida community, and we want to help you do what’s best for your home or business, as well as everyone inside it. If your building was built prior to 1989, we strongly encourage you to schedule asbestos testing.
