Testing for asbestos is a dangerous activity as materials can release toxic pathogens when disturbed.
To verify the presence of asbestos, NorHaz must conduct a thorough inspection and testing of any materials to be disturbed prior to starting a renovation or demolition project. Lab results will tell you if there is any asbestos present, as well as the concentration levels of asbestos present. The level of asbestos present in a material, the risk of exposure (friability of substance), and removal methodology will determine the proper safety procedures that need to be taken during demolition.
