If your home or commercial building was built before 1980, it more than likely has some type of asbestos in it. Some asbestos containing materials were used in the United States up until 1990. Currently, it is legal to include asbestos in almost all types of American products as long as the product does not contain more than 1 percent asbestos. The safest thing to do is to have it evaluated by a GreenWorks certified asbestos inspector. That evaluation can not only tell you whether or not you have asbestos, but it can also let you know the level of risk involved if it is present. This allows you to a professional opinion on whether the material should be removed and if not how best to maintain it to reduce your risk of exposure.

What is included in an Asbestos Inspection?

The GreenWorks asbestos survey will include sampling from areas where there is suspected asbestos containing material. These samples will be sent to a certified asbestos testing lab to determine if asbestos is present. After we have received this information, GreenWorks will write a report that will give you the information you need to make an educated decision on the path to best follow.

Where Can I Find Asbestos?

  • Attic and wall insulation produced containing vermiculite

  • Vinyl floor tiles and the backing on vinyl sheet flooring and adhesives

  • Roofing and siding shingles

  • Textured paint and patching compounds used on walls and ceilings

  • Walls and floors around wood-burning stoves protected with asbestos paper, millboard, or cement sheets

  • Hot water and steam pipes coated with asbestos material or covered with an asbestos blanket or tape

  • Oil and coal furnaces and door gaskets with asbestos insulation

  • Heat-resistant fabrics

  • Automobile clutches and brakes

This evaluation is extremely important if you are looking to do a remodel. So let GreenWorks’ specialists give you piece of mind and help keep you safe.
