Why should you test for asbestos?

Asbestos is among the leaders of lung cancer. Health issues related to asbestos are almost always due to breathing in the asbestos fibers. Exposure to asbestos increases the risk of various types of lung disease. This risk is increased by smoking tobacco products. Generally, the chance of developing asbestos related health issues increases with the amount of exposure and may take many years to develop.

When is Asbestos a Potential Problem?

Asbestos fibers are most commonly released into the air during various types of construction work. It is uncommon to be exposed to asbestos if the material is not being disturbed or damaged. Keep in mind that asbestos fibers travel through the air so issue does not necessarily have to be in your home or office.  Do you have a neighbor who is undergoing construction?
