Asbestos Testing & Inspection

in Kingston & Belleville

Asbestos is a dangerous material that was commonly used to build materials due to its durability and usability in the industrial and construction industries. Asbestos is classified as a carcinogen and can also cause numerous respiratory problems including asbestosis and mesothelioma. Asbestos has been used as a general insulation for pipes, boilers, tanks and ducts.

During building renovations, expansions or demolitions, this material can be disrupted and becomes an airborne carcinogen as well as a danger to anyone in the vicinity. If you think that you may be living in a space that contains asbestos contact First Response to receive a professional asbestos assessment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your property probably has some asbestos-containing components if it was constructed before 1980. (ACMs). It’s a good idea to get your property inspected before undertaking any renovations or other improvements so that any potential ACMs that might be disturbed during the process can be found.

The size and complexity of the property determine the length of an inspection and testing. While a bigger commercial or industrial property may require several days to check, a normal residential property inspection may only take a few hours. Results from laboratories are normally available within a few days to a week.

If asbestos is discovered on your property, it’s crucial to take the necessary precautions to reduce the danger of exposure. Options for the ACMs could include encapsulation, repair, removal, or continuous management, depending on their state and location. To decide what to do in your particular case, it is advised that you speak with a qualified asbestos professional.

There are home testing kits available, however, they might not be as accurate as testing done by a professional. Moreover, handling and collecting asbestos samples can be risky and should only be done by trained professionals to guarantee accuracy and safety.

Depending on the size and complexity of the project, you may need to leave your property while asbestos removal is being done. You might be able to stay in your house throughout the removal process for modest residential improvements. It could be essential to temporarily relocate for larger commercial or industrial undertakings.
