When you buy or move into a new home, it is always a good idea to have the home tested for asbestos. The former tenants may have never had it done, and it is an important thing to inspect for. An asbestos testing company can come to your home or business and conduct a test. Here is what you can expect.
Any joint compound or vinyl flooring has the potential to be hiding asbestos. This testing is important because asbestos is a major cause of lung cancer.
Any time you kick up dust by even nailing something into the wall there is a risk of asbestos. A sample will be taken from the corner of the wall, where asbestos can be most present. They will also take samples from tiles, and send them to a lab to have the samples inspected.
There are many dangers that can be in your home even if you don’t know of them. It’s always better to act first than have to react later. Call a professional today to make an appointment for an asbestos inspection. You can always look online for reviews or talk to a neighbor about who they used for their asbestos inspection.
