Some FAQ's Concering An Asbestos Inspection: Part One
Alot of people have questions concerning an asbestos inspection. Therefore, we have provided a basic outline of the some of the more commonly asked questions to give you an idea of what to expect.
1)How Do I Know If I Have Asbestos In My House?
The only way you can know for sure is to have an inspection. The person will come in with the right equipment and do testing on the areas in question.
Have you notice some frayed and damaged materials? You know, anything that might look suspect. You need to have that inspected before you do anything else, including a planned renovation or sale of the property.
2)What Risks Does This Present To Me And My Family?
Anything that is left alone and is not disturbed should be fine. The undisturbed asbestos is not what you have to worry about. It is the asbestos that is frayed, damaged, and might become airborne that you need to worry about.
Once it becomes airborne, it can get into your lungs and other parts of your body if you ingest anything. I know you are not going to intentionally ingest something like that. I am talking about the particles in the air that fly into your body if you sneeze or cough. Something as simple as a tiny cough and sneeze could cause the particles to fly into your body.
3)How Can I Find Someone To Come Inspect My Home?
Yes, you can. All you do is select the location from your at-home computer. The system will bounce back results based on where you live and what you need. The last thing you want is to make sure you call someone or a company that is board certified, and has a state license. Read on loose-fill asbestos taskforce for more details.
