Why Would You Test for Asbestos?
Exposure to asbestos can have catastrophic and even fatal health repercussions. When asbestos fibers are released into the air and get access into your lungs, they pose a huge health danger. Every year, 12,000 to 15,000 Americans die as a result of asbestos exposure.
Chrysotile (white asbestos), Crocidolite (blue asbestos), and Amosite (brown asbestos) are the most common types of asbestos present in a variety of building construction materials.
There have been cases of cancer and mesothelioma found in people dealing with blue asbestos than any other type of asbestos. That said; nearly all asbestos carries similar risks.
Some of the asbestos related diseases include:
Areas with Potential Asbestos
Throughout New Jersey (and elsewhere in the USA), the OSHA and EPA require those who own older homes or buildings to moderate the risks of asbestos when remodeling, renovating, or during demolition. Definitely, this means that buildings must be tested for materials that may contain asbestos. Failure to abide by these rules may attract fines or other severe penalties.
When it comes to asbestos testing, it’s crucial to understand the most prevalent areas where asbestos can be found. Our asbestos inspection experts test for asbestos in areas such as:
How Can You Test for Asbestos; Our Process
At AAA Lead Professionals, we use advanced equipment and tried and tested methods to identify asbestos in your residential or commercial building. We use the following methods to test for asbestos:
Bulk material sampling
We mostly use polarized light during bulk material sampling to test mineral-specific properties in fibers. How we conduct the test and the number of samples we take depends on the materials we are testing, the type of building, and the square footage of the supposed asbestos-containing material.
Asbestos air sampling
Our team performs air sampling if an asbestos abatement has taken place in your building to ensure that the independent asbestos abatement specialist you hired removed all the asbestos products and they didn’t leave behind any fibers. The asbestos air sampling test also ensures that no cross-contamination of your building has occurred. Cross-contamination happens when asbestos fibers flee the work area and settle on areas where there was no asbestos prior to the job.
Sampling dust from a surface by tape-lift, micro-vacuuming, wiping, or scraping are common methods our team uses to ascertain the presence of asbestos on surfaces.
Testing for Asbestos Yourself vs. Using AAA Lead professionals
Asbestos testing kits may appear to be a quick and simple way to check your house for asbestos. However, there are certain disadvantages associated with them.
First, products that contain asbestos once disturbed or damaged can pose a considerable health risk. As an amateur, disturbing asbestos particles can happen easily. Thus, this is a job that should be left to professionals like us.
Secondly, knowing what materials to test is not easy. You may think your home or commercial property has asbestos tiles; however, it may also have popcorn ceilings and asbestos insulation that should also be tested. An independent asbestos abatement specialist can quickly inspect the entire property and ascertain which areas need to be tested. The EPA also requires anyone who deals with asbestos to be adequately trained.
