Asbestos Surveys, Assessment and Testing
Asbestos was prevalent in many consumer products prior to the ban and phase out of asbestos contaning materials through 1981 (including shelf life). Asbestos was mainly used for thermal insulation (heaters, ducting and pipes), surfacing and bonding materials (roofing and tile mastics, wall joint compound, acoustical walls and ceilings) and for floor and ceiling tiles. Prior to disturbance of potential asbestos containing materials in walls, floors and ceilings, government regulations require testing for asbestos. WES provides asbestos testing and reporting for repairs, remodels and demolitions.
