Hazardous Materials Info

Home inspections are a normal part of buying a home. However, most people do not understand the importance of an asbestos home inspection and test. A simple test could save your life. Asbestos fibers could be hidden inside the building materials of your home. Once these fibers are disturbed, your entire home will be exposed to asbestos. Asbestos fibers can easily move from one room to the next through clothing, air, and even your HVAC system. Before purchasing an older home, you should have an asbestos home inspection done. If your home does have asbestos, you can determine a plan of action and keep your family safe.

Asbestos Inspections

Asbestos inspections should be handled by a licensed company. The inspection will consist of checking your entire home, including the insulation. Once the home is inspected, a test will be done to determine the presence of asbestos. If you do not have asbestos, you can go on with purchasing your home. If your home does have asbestos, you will need to talk to the seller. The seller can offer to remove the asbestos or can take the price of asbestos removal off the home. Either way, it is important to find out if the home has asbestos.

Asbestos Removal

If a test comes back that you do have asbestos, the asbestos removal company will work with you to ensure your safety. Asbestos is very hazardous to your health and if inhaled, can cause respiratory illnesses, cancer, and even death. Never go into a home or building that has asbestos. Let the professionals remove the asbestos and clear your home. Special suits, masks, and equipment is used to remove asbestos in a safe and contained manner. Asbestos exposure is one of the most dangerous things that could happen in your home. Be safe and get an asbestos home inspection before purchasing or moving in to a home.
