How To Identify Materials That Contain Asbestos
You can’t tell whether a material contains asbestos simply by looking at it. If in doubt, treat the material as if it contains asbestos or have it sampled and analyzed by a qualified professional. A professional should take samples for analysis, since a professional knows what to look for.
Reasons to test
- For your own peace of mind it may be better to know the facts.
- To determine if the building material is asbestos, or not.
- Asbestos removal can be expensive, so if test results are negative then you may save a lot of money.
Bulk samples are taken of suspect materials in accordance with EPA Protocol and are analyzed by and independent laboratory to identify the presence or absence of asbestos. Samples are analyzed using the Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) method in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines. A written report including independent laboratory analysis reports and a listing of confirmed asbestos-containing materials is prepared.
