Asbestos Testing & Consulting Services
Asbestos is a known carcinogen whose fibers can cause serious respiratory diseases, including lung cancer and mesothelioma. Asbestos was commonly used in thousands of construction materials from the 1940s to the 1970s as an effective and cost-efficient thermal and acoustic insulator for boilers, pipes, attics, siding, flooring and more. Since 1973, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has enacted a number of restrictions and management requirements for asbestos containing materials in order to reduce human exposure.
Asbestos fibers only pose a major risk when the material has been damaged over time or when a major demolition or renovation has the potential to disturb the asbestos containing materials. Our team of experienced industrial hygiene professionals help property owners comply with EPA guidelines and reduce their liability exposure through solutions that identify, manage, and mitigate the risks associated with asbestos.
