ASBESTOS SAMPLING & LAB TESTING

smiling familyAsbestos is a mineral fiber; because of its fiber strength and heat resistant properties, asbestos was widely used for a wide range of manufactured goods. Most products made today do not contain asbestos. Those few products made which still contain asbestos that could be inhaled are required to be labeled as such. However, until the 1970s (and into 1990, see note below), many residential building products and insulation materials contained asbestos.

When asbestos-containing materials are damaged or disturbed by repair, remodeling, or demolition activities, microscopic fibers become airborne and can be inhaled into the lungs, where they can cause significant health problems. Mesothelioma, more precisely malignant mesothelioma, is a form of cancer that is usually caused by exposure to asbestos.

Common products that contained asbestos, and may release asbestos fibers, include:

  • Building materials (including but not limited to):
    • roofing shingles and coatings
    • insulation
    • roofing and flooring felts
    • ceiling and floor tiles
    • decorative "popcorn" ceiling spray
    • paper products
    • pipe wrap
    • asbestos cement products
  • Friction products (automobile clutch, brake, and transmission parts)
  • Heat-resistant fabrics (fire retardant around oil furnances)
  • Packaging
  • Gaskets
  • Coatings

BEWARE:
Attic and wall insulation produced using vermiculite ore, particularly ore that originated from a Libby, Montana mine, may contain asbestos fibers. Vermiculite was mined in Libby, Montana between 1923 and 1990. Prior to its close in 1990, much of the world's supply of vermiculite came from the Libby mine. This mine had a natural deposit of asbestos which resulted in the vermiculite being contaminated with asbestos.
