We provide asbestos testing for commercial and residential clients in Greensboro.
Asbestos has been used in thousands of household and construction materials. Before it was fully tested and determined to be dangerous for use, it was commonly used as a fire retardant, insulating material, and soundproofing solution. In 1989, it was briefly banned by the EPA but came back on the market shortly afterwards. Homes built 20 years ago or more may contain asbestos, and it can cause a number of long-term health problems. In fact, asbestos can increase the risk of certain types of cancer, so it’s important to find out if your home contains it.
One of the biggest risks of asbestos is that if it’s disturbed, it can get into the air, causing you and your family to inhale it without realizing it. You could be doing a home renovation project, only to realize that you’ve drilled through tile and exposed this dangerous material. In this case, you might think the best option is to tear out the materials and start fresh, but this can be very dangerous if you’re not properly protected or familiar with how to remove asbestos safely. Instead of taking a risk, contact our team at Double D Construction Services, Inc. to schedule asbestos testing. We can determine whether asbestos is present and if the test is positive, we’ll come up with a plan for safe asbestos removal.
