Asbestos testing can be a very dangerous procedure, and involves taking a sample of the material in question and testing it in a laboratory. Once in the lab, highly sensitive equipment is used to try to detect asbestos fibers. Because of the danger of exposure, most safety organizations do not recommend that people try to test for asbestos on their own.
People looking to buy a new house should always hire someone to do asbestos testing before making a purchase, especially if the home was built prior to the 1980s. In many areas, asbestos testing is mandatory for the selling, and testing records are typically open to anyone interested in viewing them. Asbestos testing should always be done before renovating an older building, or if insulation, floor tiles, or cement segments are exposed or damaged.
Because of the danger of asbestos exposure, we do not recommend purchasing a kit to test for asbestos on your own. These tests also are not always accurate, leading to continued exposure if they don’t indicate asbestos.
