Unlike mold, asbestos does not grow. Asbestos is a fiber that was commonly used in building materials. Asbestos was found to be a hazard to your health and was banned by the EPA. Asbestos can be found in older homes built prior to the EPA announcements. Manufacturers have since eliminated their use of asbestos.
When asbestos is visible, we will identify it as an “Asbestos like substance”. To call a substance asbestos, laboratory testing is required. If requested, we will take samples of the asbestos and have it tested in a laboratory.
Asbestos can be found in the form of insulation, wrapping pipes and furnace insulation materials. Examples include:
|Tile Floors||Siding||Pipe & Heat Duct Insulation|
