How We Can Help
Over 5,000 different asbestos-containing consumer products have been manufactured in the U.S. over the course of the last century. Because it is often impossible to tell with certainty whether asbestos is embedded in a material, as the fibers are too small to be observed with the naked eye, you need to test products appropriately. We offer free testing services for all types of products, which might contain these toxic minerals. Our downloadable guide will help you recognize the most common asbestos-containing items you may have in your house and will also teach you how to collect samples without exposing yourself, if the material is indeed contaminated.
Additionally, you can find a list of asbestos abatement companies for each state in the U.S. at the end of our guide. If you have asbestos in your house, you should never attempt to remove it yourself, as the risk of contamination is very high and you will most likely end up releasing more fibers into the air. There are numerous professional certified removal companies you can hire to properly dispose of it, many of which offer affordable abatement services. Removing asbestos from your living space is essential, especially if the building materials or products are damaged, old, loosely bound or have been disturbed.
