Many products made today do not contain asbestos. Those few products that are made that still contain asbestos are most likely required to be labeled as such. However, until the 1980s, many types of building products and insulation materials used in homes contained asbestos. Asbestos is a dangerous, naturally occurring mineral. The light, fine and virtually indestructible fibers of free asbestos in the air are easily inhaled into the lungs, wreaking havoc on the human body.
At 1st Choice Abatement & Demolition, we know that asbestos materials are difficult to locate. They can include vinyl wall coverings, ceiling tiles and sprayed on "popcorn" textured coatings. For these products, the only way to find the asbestos-containing fibers is to scientifically test for them.
