Asbestos is a natural fiber that is highly dangerous to humans. It has been used in construction materials for decades. It was perfect because of the heat-resistant properties and its durability. However, over time, it was determined that this particular mineral caused devastating illnesses, like cancer and even death. Laws were passed, and it seemed everything was okay. Unfortunately, many older businesses still have asbestos-containing materials. Even newer construction materials may have traces of asbestos. In a nutshell, this means no one is safe. The only safe guarantee is with an asbestos test.

Should I Have my Business Tested for Asbestos?
YES! If you plan to do a remodel, demolition, or even sell your business, it is important that you have an asbestos test completed by a certified asbestos removal company.
