Asbestos Testing in Oregon and Southern Washington
Asbestos was once considered the miracle mineral. Its heat and corrosion resistance, high tensile strength and general versatility made it a key ingredient for the industrial age. For this reason, asbestos is found, and sometimes still added to, a tremendous variety of building materials.
Unfortunately, when it was proven that exposure to asbestos caused cancer, all the benefits associated with this material were replaced with concerns over how to safely manage a carcinogen that is present in nearly every home and building constructed before the 1980’s.
