CVE Describes How to Tell if Your Home or Business Requires Asbestos Removal


Companies are just as to be susceptible to asbestos as smaller residential homes. Asbestos is most commonly found in old buildings and homes because it was used in the manufacturing of certain ceiling tiles, siding, insulation, and other construction materials in the early 1900s prior to the realization of its adverse health risks. The reason it took so long for doctors to realize the negative consequences of asbestos is because it is only a potential risk when it goes airborne, but if ignored can result in the scarring of the lungs, and ultimately, cancer.

Although only the professionals can determine if you require asbestos removal, companies and homes can also try the following methods when testing for asbestos to find out if they are at risk.

Testing for Asbestos

When testing for asbestos, first consider when your building or home was first constructed. Asbestos was most widely used between 1989 and 1920 and homes built during this time are likely to have asbestos. Cracks and disintegration are another common indicator that you might require asbestos removal. If it seems likely that you require asbestos removal, companies and homes are encouraged to contact CVE to perform an EPA-certified analysis to confirm or deny your suspicions.
