Asbestos Testing for Residential and Commercial buildings
A commonly used construction material, Asbestos poses a great danger when the Asbestos particles become airborne. Airborne Asbestos particles become a risk when they are inhaled. Exposure to Asbestos can lead to mesothelioma and lung cancer.
The most common reason for testing for Asbestos involves a construction project or an aging building. As Asbestos containing materials are disturbed through construction or demolition, or as they weaken with age, the risk of exposure becomes high.
In Chicago, we most often find Asbestos in:
– Floor tile
– Ceiling Tile
– Popcorn Ceilings
– Pipe Insulation
– HVAC ducts
– Roof Shingles
