Why perform asbestos testing in Pittsburgh?
Asbestos may seem like a older building material that is no longer used today, but it is still commonly found in a variety of commercial, residential and industrial buildings. Asbestos, as a building material, can be found in areas such as plaster, drywall, transite, linoleum, flooring, flashing, roofing and window chalking. Exposure to asbestos can lead to illnesses including cancer and mesothelioma to name a few. The spotting and eradication by an asbestos testing company in Pittsburgh PA ensures that your building is save from exposure to asbestos.
Legal concerns by not using asbestos testing services
Both OSHA and EPA guidelines require that both asbestos testing and inspection occur before any demolition or remodeling of a multi-unit residential, educational or commercial building. Specifically, OSHA requires asbestos testing to ensure a safe working environment during all construction related activities. The failure to perform an asbestos testing in Pittsburgh can result in files, penalties and the potential of a job site shutdown.
Why AAI Testing does it better
For airborne asbestos testing in Pittsburgh, PA, 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 asbestos measuring techniques.
For building material, AAI performs Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) which uses unique properties of polarized light to analyze properties in fibers, allowing researchers to identify asbestos particles.
