What You Need to Know About Asbestos Inspection and Assessment

Asbestos is a mineral that was widely used for insulation and fire-proofing from the late 1800s to the early 1980s. Asbestos fibres are dangerous if inhaled, whether in large amounts or over time and can be found in many older buildings, homes, and offices. The problem with asbestos is that it doesn’t always look like a threat; so, people don’t know if they’re living or working in an environment where their health could be at risk. If you suspect your building might contain asbestos, it’s crucial you have testing and assessment done as soon as possible to mitigate risks.

Many people are unaware that they may have been exposed to asbestos in their homes or workplaces. Asbestos is a natural mineral that can lead to serious health issues such as mesothelioma and lung cancer when inhaled. If you suspect your building has asbestos, it’s essential to get it tested by an accredited professional before any renovation work or natural degradation occurs to stop asbestos from turning into its most dangerous form – friable (loose asbestos).

A home or work building may contain asbestos, but it can’t be confirmed unless there is a proper inspection. This means that the asbestos sample testing process must be done carefully and accurately so homeowners and business owners know for sure what they are dealing with. If you suspect your home may contain asbestos, be sure to get in touch with Myers Asbestos Removals – your asbestos removal company today!

Asbestos analysis is a critical task in any building or work environment. It is also one of the most dangerous types of testing that can be undertaken as there are strict safety protocols and precautions that must be followed when carrying out an asbestos analysis.

We’ve seen firsthand how problematic it can be when people try to identify asbestos on their own without any training or expertise in this area. There is a common misconception that if you see white fibres, your material must contain asbestos, but this isn’t always the case. In fact, asbestos can be next to impossible to identify without a thorough laboratory analysis. Be sure to get in touch with us about residential asbestos testing if you suspect your home has asbestos.
