ASBESTOS CONTAINING MATERIALS

Asbestos is a mineral fiber that was used in building and construction materials due to its strength, insulation properties, and fire-resistance capabilities. However, closer scrutiny from the scientific and medical community revelaed inhalation of asbestos fibers is linked with poor respiratory health, raising concerns from businesses and individuals around the world in its detection and management.

It is important to have potentially Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) tested before disturbing. If potentially ACMs have been disturbed with or without proper abatement engineering controls, air quality analysis for asbestos fibers is warranted. Absolute Labs has been providing asbestos testing and consulting services for residential and commercial real estate sectors for over 30 years.
