Why Asbestos Inspection is a Good Idea

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a term used to refer to a set of six naturally occurring minerals. These minerals are composed of thin, needle-like fibers that can easily become airborne when disturbed. The most common types of asbestos are chrysotile, amosite, and crocidolite.

Due to its excellent heat resistance and durability, asbestos was frequently used in various construction materials, including insulation, floor tiles, roofing, and cement products. However, it is crucial to identify and address any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) present in your home to prevent exposure.

However, prolonged exposure to asbestos fibres can lead to dire health consequences. Inhalation of these microscopic fibres can cause serious respiratory diseases, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.

The Importance of Asbestos Inspection

An asbestos inspection plays a pivotal role in identifying and managing potential asbestos hazards within a building.

Asbestos-containing materials are often concealed within the structure of a building, making their presence difficult to detect without professional assistance. An experienced asbestos inspector has the knowledge and tools to identify hidden asbestos and assess its condition.

What to Expect During an Asbestos Inspection

During an asbestos inspection, a qualified professional will visually examine your home’s structure, taking note of materials that may contain asbestos. They may also collect samples of suspected materials for laboratory analysis to confirm the presence of asbestos fibres.

By evaluating the location, quantity, and friability (ease of fibre release) of ACMs, the inspector determines the level of risk and recommends appropriate action.
