Asbestos Lead Mold Testing | 720-812-6490 | Denver Boulder Colorado Springs
Unfortunately, there are only a handful of materials that are readily identifiable as containing asbestos. These are usually things like duct wrap and paneling, some kinds of siding and some kinds of pipe or conduit. The only way to rule out asbestos, is to sample the material and have have it analyzed at an accredited laboratory.
Many building materials in new and old structures alike may contain asbestos above regulated levels. Here is a short list of materials in which we commonly find asbestos:
Wall and Ceiling Textures (All Kinds)
Drywall Joint Compound
Lath and Plaster
Ceiling Tile Adhesives
Flooring and Cove Base Adhesives
Getting life back to normal after after a fire or flood is paramount. We offer same day test results when possible, and next day service where practical.
Before structures can be demolished, regulated asbestos containing building materials must be removed, but before they can be removed they must be found. Typical residential demolitions will require most of a day to complete and 40-60 samples. Some cases can require significantly more detail, particularly in older homes with multiple remodeling activities. These demolitions can sometimes require 80-100 or more samples.
Whether you're looking to purchase a home or protect yourself on a small project, we can perform minimally invasive sampling in discreet locations. We take great care to be as clean as possible while sampling and to remove any debris.
If you don't need a Certified Asbestos Building Inspector and an official report, we offer drop-off sample services. We'll come pick up samples you've collected and get them tested, but keep in mind we offer no guarantee, warranty or otherwise when we don't do the inspection and sampling ourselves.
Our inspection reports meet or exceed regulatory requirements, but more importantly, describe exactly what we sampled, where we sampled from and what's in the material in a consistent and understandable manner.
