Testing your home in Westchester for asbestos is one of the most important things you can do for your family or business in Westchester. The exposure to asbestos and the dangers of this microscopic mineral (asbestos is a group of fibrous metamorphic minerals of the hydrous magnesium silicate variety) is invisible to the eye.
Once we test for asbestos in Westchester, we make sure all materials are removed and properly labeled to the requirements of the EPA. We inspect your property in Westchester for to the fullest extent for asbestos by cautiously 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 examined by one of our neighboring testing labs in the Westchester area.
To ensure property owners in Westchester, 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.
The EPA and its body formed the Bulk Asbestos Program. The program is to accredit testing labs 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 Westchester 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.
