Asbestos-containing materials are still being used in the United States. Asbestos materials aren’t as widespread as they once were, but nonetheless, they are still just as dangerous. They may have been used on your newly renovated or built home. Many assume because they have a newer home, that they are safe from asbestos. This is far from the truth. Asbestos Abatement Services is here to give you the information you need to protect yourself and your family from asbestos.
Asbestos Testing is Important
Before purchasing a home, you should have an asbestos test completed. A newer looking home could still contain asbestos materials. Without the proper testing, you would never know. Asbestos materials don’t look any different than safe materials. The only way to know for sure is through proper testing. Find a certified and licensed asbestos removal company to test your home. It could save you and your families lives.
Before Renovations, Have an Asbestos Check Completed
Remodeling is one of the best parts of owning a home. You get to add a touch of yourself to your home. However, renovations can be dangerous if you have asbestos-containing materials. Dust particles from asbestos materials can travel throughout your home and endanger everyone in its path. The only way to be sure that it is safe to renovate is by having an asbestos survey or test completed.
If your newer home does contain asbestos, the asbestos abatement company will work with you on what the best method of removal is. If you are still in the purchasing phase, you can ask the homeowners to have it removed, or take the amount of removal off the purchase price. Asbestos testing should be completed on both new and older homes for your protection and peace of mind. For more information, check out our other asbestos-related blogs.
