Testing for Asbestos and Lead

Your home and property are probably the largest dollar value investment most people will make in their lives. 

DIY, do it yourselves projects are very common when home improvements occur in adding new life to your property and increase its value for general reasons or resale in the future.

In some situations, other occurrences such as flood or water loss may require repair or replacement of materials as a result of damage.

If you own a home built in or before 1970 its important to know that various agencies have identified these and even some homes in the 80’s as potentially containing asbestos and /or lead.

In either the case of a Do-it-Yourself project or water loss, homeowners should consider having materials such as drywall, vinyl tile and painted surfaces tested for both lead and asbestos prior to replacement of such.

Sawing, sanding or and other activities could result in disturbing the materials and causing the release of asbestos fibers or lead dust into the home.
