Asbestos Testing in Tacoma
Protect the Health of Those You Love.
Houses built prior to 1950 are most likely to have items, materials or parts containing asbestos. Asbestos fibers have been used in a wide range of manufactured goods like roofing shingles, ceiling and floor tiles, paper and cement products, textiles, coatings, insulation on HVAC parts and duct work. Exposure to asbestos can increase the chances of lung disease, so it is important to know whether or not a home contains asbestos.
Professional Testing for Asbestos near You
You usually can’t tell whether a material contains asbestos simply by looking at it, so you may want to have your home tested for asbestos-containing materials by a trained asbestos professional if:
- You are planning to remodel your home (remodeling can disturb building materials)
- Your home has damaged building materials (like crumbling drywall and insulation that is falling apart)
If unsure whether or not the material contains asbestos, HomeTeam Inspection Service can conduct an asbestos test by sampling the material. Special education, training, and certification are required to take samples and provide test results. With HomeTeam, you can rest assured the company that performs your testing has the proper credentials. Our experienced and certified professionals adhere to strict safety protocols, ensuring that the inspection process is both accurate and secure, thereby reducing any unnecessary risks to your family's health.
If asbestos testing confirms that you have asbestos in your home and if asbestos-containing material is becoming damaged (i.e., unraveling, frayed, breaking apart), you should immediately isolate the area (keep pets and children away from it) and refrain from disturbing the material (either by touching it or walking on it). The presence of deteriorating asbestos is a serious concern that requires immediate action.
This material can release harmful fibers into the air, leading to potential health issues. At HomeTeam, we don't just identify the problem; we provide guidance on immediate containment and refer you to qualified professionals. Choosing HomeTeam Inspection Service for asbestos testing means more than just getting a diagnosis; it means receiving comprehensive support through a potentially stressful situation. If asbestos is confirmed, we will provide you with detailed information about the next steps. Learn how your local HomeTeam Inspection Service can help today.
Do not attempt to remove asbestos yourself; special protective equipment and isolation of the area may be necessary to protect the health and well-being of the inhabitants.
