The importance of finding the affected areas and testing to ensure the suspected area is actually asbestos is paramount to the removal. Without first indicating the area and confirming the presence of asbestos no removal can occur. Screening for asbestos should be conducted to assess whether your building or property is subject to asbestos infestations.
Testing should be conducted by proper and licensed facilities to ensure a proper assessment is done of the sample. Samples should be removed from the home of concern and sent to the appropriate facility. Lab testing will be conducted with samples provided from the structure. Samples are placed in sealable containers and sent to the lab to detect for asbestos. Lab facilities can take from two to five days to complete a thorough and proper testing process for the sample submitted. No matter the lapse, the importance of testing the sample is real. We include this step in every asbestos removal that SAR takes part in as a non-negotiable.
