If you're thinking about adding asbestos testing to your home inspection, you may have a few questions. Our clients typically want to know:
What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a carcinogenic material that was once widely used in housing for insulation, fireproofing and decorative purpose. In 1973, most forms of asbestos were banned, but it was not removed from houses.
Will asbestos harm my family?
Asbestos is relatively harmless as long as you don't touch or interact with it in any way. If a piece of asbestos breaks or begins to crumble, you could inhale the fibers, leading to serious or fatal illnesses.
Can I get rid of asbestos?
Asbestos can be safely removed, but the process is expensive and time-intensive. If you're purchasing a home that was built before the 1970s, make sure you set up an asbestos testing service.
