Asbestos is still found in some building materials imported into the United States, including insulation, flooring, textured paint, ceiling and roof tiles. Exposure to asbestos can cause serious illnesses like cancer including mesothelioma and asbestosis.
Asbestos testing is necessary, because you can't tell whether a material contains asbestos simply by looking at it, unless it is labeled. If in doubt, treat the material as if it contains asbestos and give us a call to come and perform an inspection.make an appointment
To protect against the chance of your property from becoming contaminated with asbestos dust and fibers, you must have your home or business tested by a qualified service provider like Enviro-Watch. If your air tests clean, you are safe.
Asbestos testing should always be done by an expert! The technicians here at Envirowatch are the experts you can trust for your home or business.
PCM (Phase Contrast Microscopy) is the testing of air samples, using a specific microscope, for airborne fibers. This method can be performed with a fast turn around on the results. It is also one of the cheaper methods of testing. While PCM cannot distinguish asbestos fibers from other fibers, it can give you a total of airborne fibers present in a particular space.
When smaller fibers are present, a method called TEM (Transmission Electron Microscopy) is utilized. This technique is the most sophisticated method of air monitoring for asbestos using microscope technology. Most airborne asbestos testing utilizes this method of identification. It is so specific in its identification, that it can indicate the actual type of asbestos fiber in the air sample collected.
