Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material that was a popular building material from the 1950s to 1990s. It was used extensively because it is an insulator, has good fire protection properties, has tensile strength, and is resistant to chemical erosion.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to know if you’re working with asbestos because it is often mixed with other materials, testing for potential asbestos containing materials is recommended.
Testing for asbestos in the property can be done by the following methods:
Air testing canister
Physical piece of the material
All air quality tests are sent to a professional laboratory for examination.
