Asbestos Testing

Asbestos Testing

Asbestos is a material that enjoyed widespread use around the world in many applications, including fireproofing, soundproofing, and insulation. Despite its effectiveness and low cost to manufacture, asbestos has fallen out of favor due to health concerns that include lung cancer and mesothelioma. The most dangerous asbestos fibers are too small to be seen. Once inhaled, they lodge in the lungs forever. WrightWay facilitates having your home or business tested by asbestos inspectors. Highly trained and certified, they conduct asbestos testing in residential and commercial settings.

When to Test For Asbestos:

You may suspect there is asbestos in your home, but only trained professionals can examine materials without the risk of releasing fibers into the air. WrightWay will help you find an asbestos inspector to test for asbestos in these situations:

  • If you are buying, selling or renting a condominium, co-op or home built before 1980
  • Before you or your contractor do any renovations on property built before 1980
  • Before you or your contractor do any demolition work on property built before 1980

When it comes to asbestos abatement, it’s essential to document your compliance, prioritize areas of concern and minimize the risks and liabilities for you and your residents. WrightWay can manage the entire abatement project from start to finish. By providing an asbestos management plan for your home or business, this allows WrightWay to plan a course of action. This plan provides basic information on how to develop and carry out high quality operations and maintenance programs for managing asbestos in place. Asbestos management plans are required by many federal and state agencies, lending institutions and insurance companies.

Final asbestos clearance testing includes visual inspections of the work area to assure no visible debris remains and final air samples to ensure results are below the EPA and State re-occupancy clearance criteria. All inspections and testing are performed by a licensed inspector.
