Asbestos Testing and Inspection in Denver, CO

Why Should You Test for Asbestos?

Asbestos is one of the leading causes of lung cancer.

When materials containing asbestos are disturbed by something as simple as sanding or drilling, fibers are released into the air. 

Inhaling those fibers can cause serious diseases like asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. 

Though it may take years, the risk of developing one of these life-threatening diseases increases with the amount of exposure and by smoking tobacco products. 

When is Asbestos a Problem?

Asbestos fibers are commonly released into the air during various types of construction work. 

Asbestos exposure usually does not occur if asbestos-containing materials are left undisturbed. 

It is important to keep in mind that asbestos fibers travel through the air, so the danger to your health and the health of others is not necessarily located close by such as in your home or office.

The bottom line is if you’re planning a construction project, you’ll need an asbestos test.

My partner met them, and said that they were terrific! I did not meet them myself. I have very much appreciated my interactions with Kyle who has been pleasant, professional, and spot on with his commitment.

Quick easy. Polite. Prompt. Update. I have asbestos. Good to know. The employee, Antonio, has forgotten about this detail and that, and while he's very polite, having to cope with multiple follow up calls on top of the bad news is more stressful than necessary. He forgot to measure the contaminated area, he forgot to ask what I did with the flooring, and so on. Please, Antonio please get your stuff done all at once, dragging this out is more of a migraine than the migraine I already have. The stress, and then the repeated, oh I forgot, I'm taking down a star.
