Why Remove Asbestos?

There are over 3,000 manufactured products that are known to contain asbestos. Recent reports estimate that over 30 million homes and commercial buildings, within the United States alone, contain some type of an asbestos-containing product. The only way to truly remove the threat of asbestos exposure and its dangerous health effects is to remove all asbestos from the premises.

Why Test for Asbestos?

Asbestos is highly toxic and was widely used in a large number of building materials including flooring, ceiling tiles, insulation, cements, joint compound and more. It is important, therefore to test for the presence of asbestos before initiating any building repairs or improvements on structures that were built prior to 1980. Not doing so can put you and others in the immediate vicinity at risk for inhaling airborne asbestos fibers during the repair or renovation. Asbestos has causal links to mesothelioma, a type of asbestos cancer.
