Asbestos Testing

The U.S. EPA requires an asbestos survey prior to renovation for buildings built before 1980.

Asbestos Testing

Once heralded as a miracle building material, asbestos refers to a group of minerals found in rock and soil. Asbestos was regularly used in construction products prior to 1980 because of its fire and heat resistance, tensile strength, and acoustic absorption capabilities. Unfortunately, the material has been found to cause serious respiratory illness and lethal forms of cancer—mostly through inhaling the fibers through dust and debris.
The U.S. EPA requires an asbestos survey prior to renovation for buildings built before 1980. If any asbestos is found in the area to be renovated, strict construction regulations come into play, including the requirement that only an asbestos certified contractor can be used for the renovations. All work must be performed in compliance with the EPA’s National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Asbestos (Asbestos NESHAP) [40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 61, Subpart M].
