Asbestos Abatement Sampling
If your home or office was built after World War II and before the 1980s, there is a chance that it may contain asbestos insulation. Asbestos has been identified as a cancer-causing material that poses serious health risks when its fibres are present in the air that we breathe. It’s known to cause serious and fatal illnesses such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer through prolonged inhalation. In order to ensure your family and employees are safe, it’s pertinent to determine if asbestos is present in the building.
Asbestos can be found in many older materials such as insulation, roofing shingles, siding, floor tiles, soundproofing ceiling tiles and plaster. You can expose yourself to asbestos if removing, sanding, breaking, scraping, sawing, drilling, smoothing or otherwise disturbing any of these materials that contain asbestos. When asbestos is disturbed it increases the health risk to you, your family and your employees.
Testing for asbestos is critical if you plan on renovating, remodelling, demolishing or building an addition to your building, especially older residential and commercial structures as well as other public spaces.
