Why asbestos testing and asbestos inspections are important?
Though asbestos may seem like a building material that is no longer popular today, it is still very commonly found in a variety of industrial, commercial and residential buildings. Asbestos can be found in building materials such as flooring, drywall, plaster, transite, window chalking, linoleum, flashing and roofing. Asbestos exposure can lead illnesses including cancer and mesothelioma to name a few. The identification and removal by an asbestos testing company ensures that your building is safe from asbestos exposure.
Legal concerns by not using asbestos consulting and testing services
Both the EPA and OSHA guidelines require that both asbestos testing and an asbestos inspection occur prior to any remodel or demolition of a commercial, educational and multi-unit residential building. OSHA specifically requires asbestos testing to ensure a safe working environment during any and all construction activities. Failure to perform an asbestos inspection can result in fines, penalties and even a shutdown of the job site.
Why AAI Testing does it better
For airborne asbestos testing , AAI performs Phase Contract Microscopy (PCM) to measure fiber concentrations which indicate that asbestos is present. The PCM method is both popular and useful due to the fast result turnaround and lower cost than other measuring techniques.
For building material asbestos testing, AAI performs Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) which uses unique properties of polarized light to analyze properties in fibers, allowing researchers to identify asbestos particles.
AAI Testing offers a wide variety of testing and inspection services including: Asbestos Testing, Lead Paint Inspection, Professional Mold Testing and Well Water Testing.
AAI Testing services areas in Western Pennsylvania including: Pittsburgh, Westmoreland County, Allegheny County, Butler County, Indiana County and more.
