As a result Asbestos was used in many common building materials, such as different types of insulation, floor tiles, textured ceilings, drywall, drywall compound, plaster, etc. in homes and other buildings constructed during the last century.

Get an asbestos assessment before you begin remodeling

Yonkers Asbestos inspections are important in homes built from the 1980’s and prior whenever the building materials described above are to be disturbed. “Disturbed” can include these materials being cut, drilled, scraped or any other way in which the suspect material is handled where fibers may be released into the air. These types of activities typically occur during a renovation project or a mold remediation project.

Therefore, it is recommended that any materials that will be disturbed should be tested to determine whether there is asbestos present in levels that have been established by the EPA as requiring asbestos abatement to remove it and properly dispose of it.  

Identifying whether asbestos is present is important because only workers trained and equipped to handle asbestos should remove it from the area where renovations or remediation is to be performed.
