Asbestos was a popular material to use in building materials many years ago, especially in the 1960s and 1970s. Asbestos can be found in ceiling tiles, insulation, shingles, cement, drywall, and many other building materials. So if you are doing remodeling, demolition, or any other type of construction on your property and it is over 40 years old, it is probably a good idea to have asbestos testing done before you start. Asbestos testing will let you know if there is any asbestos present in the home or building that needs to be safely removed before you begin your project.
You might be wondering why asbestos testing is so important. It might seem like an unnecessary step that just holds up the progress of your project. While it might be tempting to forgo having asbestos testing done, you really shouldn’t. Asbestos has been found to be very dangerous. When asbestos particles become airborne, they can be very harmful. Asbestos has been linked to many different health problems like respiratory problems and many different types of cancers. Even short-term exposure to asbestos can cause health problems, so you want to make sure you are not working with asbestos at all during your project.
