When You Need Residential Asbestos Testing
Testing is the only reliable way to identify asbestos-containing materials in your household. If you are wondering whether you need it, here are common scenarios that call for residential asbestos testing:
1. When you’re planning a remodel or demolition project
Asbestos testing is crucial for ensuring the safety of your renovation or demolition project, particularly when dealing with older homes. This is because disturbing building materials during construction can release harmful asbestos fibres into the air.
2. When you’re planning to purchase a previously owned home
Before closing the deal on a new home, do residential asbestos testing as part of your inspection. This gives you peace of mind that everything in the home is safe.
3. When you suspect ACMs
If you suspect the presence of asbestos-containing materials in your home, such as insulation, flooring, or roofing, it’s advisable to conduct testing for confirmation. AES can assess and advise on proper corrective measures. Any asbestos sampling points that prove to have ACMs will need to be encapsulated or removed after testing.
4. When you’re experiencing asbestos-related health concerns
If you or a family member suffer from respiratory issues or other health concerns that may have a connection with asbestos exposure, a residential asbestos testing service can help identify the sources of contamination.
5. When it is legally required by insurance companies
Insurance companies may require asbestos testing, especially if there’s a history of asbestos-related claims or concerns. Compliance with such requirements ensures safety and adherence to regulations.
One-Time Exposure Can Be Dangerous
Residential asbestos testing is critical because even one-time exposure to asbestos can be dangerous, especially for the immunocompromised. Brief exposure during renovations or demolitions can still elevate the risk of severe illness. When left unaddressed, asbestos fibres can accumulate in the body over time, leading to lung scarring and inflammation that may impact breathing and overall health.
