Clean Touch Environmental offers asbestos testing services to the Maryland, Washington DC, and Northern Virginia area.
Asbestos is a mineral fiber that occurs in rock and soil. Because of its fiber strength and heat resistance asbestos has been used in wide variety of products and materials including building and construction materials such as insulation, fire retardant, shingles, tiles, drywall, plaster, popcorn ceilings, and cement products. Other products and materials include automobile parts (clutch, brake, and transmission parts), heat-resistant fabrics, packaging products, gaskets, drilling fluids and coatings.
Asbestos fibers can be released into the air during product use, demolition work, home renovations, repair, and remodeling. Generally, exposure occurs when the asbestos-containing material is disturbed or damaged in some way, allowing the release of asbestos particles and fibers into the air. When inhaled, these particles remain in the lungs and increase your risk of adverse health effects and disease. The most common diseases associated with exposure to asbestos include asbestosis, pleural effusion, mesothelioma and lung cancer.
At Clean Touch Environmental, our highly experienced, EPA, Accredited course trained and OSHA certified staff provide professional and effective solutions to clients who seek to survey and manage asbestos. Our consultants have a comprehensive knowledge of asbestos issues ranging from analytical methods, to asbestos containing materials and uses in buildings.
Comprehensive asbestos testing services in Maryland, DC, and Northern VA provide specification development, inspection and documentation of work practices, air monitoring, and clearance sampling. Emphasis is placed heavily on personnel protection, secure containment, and safe practices.
Why do I need Asbestos Testing?
Asbestos is still found in some building materials imported into the United States, including insulation, flooring, textured paint, ceiling and roof tiles. Exposure to asbestos can cause serious illnesses like cancer including mesothelioma and asbestosis.
OSHA and the EPA both have guidelines that require asbestos inspections and asbestos surveys. The EPA specifies that you must complete an asbestos inspection before any demolition or remodel of a commercial, educational or multi-unit residential building. OSHA requires commercial and home asbestos test and surveys to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all occupants, employees and families. Failing to meet these guidelines can result in fines and other penalties.
