Asbestos Testing

Prior to the 1970's many types of building products and insulation materials used in homes contained asbestos. If you think asbestos may be in your home, don't panic! Usually the best thing is to leave asbestos material that is in good condition alone. Generally, material in good condition will not release asbestos fibers. There is no danger unless fibers are released and inhaled into the lungs.

If asbestos material shows signs of wear or damage such as tearing, abrasion, or water damage, or it is exposed to hitting, rubbing, or extreme vibration or air flow you should have it repaired or removed by a professional.

Some home inspectors offer the service of taking samples of suspected material and sending them to a lab for analysis. Results can take up to a week.

For more information on asbestos call the EPA at 202-554-1404
