Whenever we test for asbestos in Manhattan, we make certain all materials are removed and adequately labeled to the requirements of the EPA. We examine your property in Manhattan for to the fullest for asbestos by carefully labeling each container. We have to treat each material we find as if it contains asbestos. We send these samples for testing and have if analyzed by one of our neighboring testing labs in the Manhattan area.


Asbestos testing should always be performed by a specialist.

To assure property owners in Manhattan, asbestos testing is administered by The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or sometimes USEPA) is an agency of the federal government of the United States charged with protecting human health and with safeguarding the natural environment: air, water, and land. The EPA began operation on December 2, 1970. The current Administrator (as of 2006) is Stephen L. Johnson.

Asbestos Testing- Bulk Asbestos Testing

The EPA and its body formed the Bulk Asbestos Program. This program is to accredit testing laboratories to assure that they are competent to analyze bulk samples for asbestos testing, using polarized light microscopy (PLM). This test helps to determine if your property in Manhattan contains asbestos fibers.

National Institute of Standards and Technology (formerly the National Bureau of Standards) develop an accreditation program for laboratories conducting analyses of bulk samples of asbestos-containing material.
