If you think that there may be an asbestos hazard in your home or environment, the only way to make sure is to conduct an asbestos analysis. Getting professionals in to advise you about levels of asbestos in your environment is the first step. If a hazard does exist, you will then need help with a plan to get rid of it professionally and safely.

After Asbestos Analysis?

Although asbestos analysis probably won't cost you much, having it removed can be very expensive. This is mainly due to the safety precautions that must be taken to safeguard the working crew and you and your family later on. A complete clean up will warrant another analysis afterwards to make sure that asbestos levels have been reduced to within the safety limit.

Cleaning up asbestos yourself is not an option unless you happen to be an expert. If you don't know exactly what you're doing you could actually be exposing yourself and your family to greater risk. Dealing with hazardous substances of any kind is not a job for amateurs. Make sure that anyone you call in to help you with an asbestos hazard is licensed with the Department of Labor and Industries as an asbestos abatement contractor.

If you feel that calling in the professionals for asbestos analysis and clean up is an unnecessary expense, maybe if you consider the possible medical costs, not to mention the human cost, might be if you make a mistake and you or a loved one falls ill as a result. Health and safety doesn't have a price on them. What's more, if you ever want to sell your home or property, the fact that you will have documentation to prove that you got rid of asbestos in the correct way will mean that you won't need to bring your price down because of a potential hazard.

calling in the professionals

calling in the professionals is ALWAYS the best course of action! Saving money just isn't worth the potential human cost. We work as asbestos solicitors and have seen so many devastating cases where mesothelioma sufferers and their families lives are completely destroyed, as a result of their exposure to asbestos.
