The Persistence of Asbestos

Asbestos, known for its remarkable fire resistance and durability, was once a go-to material for electrical, building, and construction projects. From drywall to popcorn ceiling texture, it was primarily used from the 1930s to the 1970s. Unfortunately, this means that asbestos can still be found in numerous buildings today, especially since the 1989 Asbestos Ban did not fully prohibit its use. But don’t worry, there’s hope! The good news is that authorities are currently taking steps to phase out this toxic material from the market for good.

State of the art technology

Understanding Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos becomes extremely hazardous when it becomes “friable,” meaning that it has degraded to a point where it can easily crumble, releasing its harmful fibers into the air. Asbestos was widely used in a variety of building materials due to its fire resistance and durability. Some of the primary building materials that contained asbestos include:

  • Wall and attic insulation that was produced with vermiculite
  • Ceiling and floor tiles
  • Roofing shingles
  • HVAC duct insulation and gaskets
  • Textured paint and coatings

It’s important to note that this list is not exhaustive and that asbestos can still be found in other building materials not listed here.

Asbestos exposure can occur when individuals inhale or ingest asbestos fibers. This can happen when materials containing asbestos are disturbed or damaged, causing the fibers to become airborne. Once the fibers are inhaled, they can become lodged in the lungs or other parts of the respiratory system, leading to various health problems such as:

  • Asbestosis (a non-cancerous lung disease)
  • Lung Cancer
  • Mesothelioma

Inspecting For Asbestos

When Should You Schedule An Asbestos Survey?

Investing in a survey is always a wise decision since it can be assumed that most buildings contain asbestos. Whether your property is about to be remodeled or has confirmed asbestos-containing material that is likely to be disturbed, then scheduling a survey will help give you the answers and guidance you need.

As time passes and asbestos degrades, its instability increases, making it difficult to predict the likelihood of future exposure. Therefore, our team conducts thorough asbestos surveys to not only identify and inspect existing asbestos but also pinpoint its exact location and provide comprehensive testing reports that adhere to regional regulations and standards. In the event that asbestos is detected, we will furnish you with a detailed report outlining the precise locations in which we discovered asbestos on your property, giving you the option of deciding what steps to take next.
