Asbestos is a dangerous mineral that was commonly used in building materials until the 1980s. Exposure to asbestos can cause serious health problems, including lung cancer and mesothelioma. If you suspect that your home or workplace may contain asbestos, it's crucial to get it tested as soon as possible. At Aspen Environmental, we offer professional asbestos testing services that will give you peace of mind and ensure the safety of your family and employees.

Asbestos is not considered dangerous until the fibers become airborne when disturbed or damaged by construction. This carcinogen can cause serious health problems such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.

What is Asbestos Testing?

Asbestos testing is the process of determining whether a material contains asbestos. It involves taking a sample of the material and analyzing it in a laboratory to identify the presence and type of asbestos fibers.

Asbestos can be found in many buildings built before 1980 because it was widely used for insulation, roofing materials and floor tiles until the 1970s due to its resistance to heat and fire. Asbestos was commonly used in construction materials such as insulation, roofing, flooring, and ceiling tiles. It may also be found in older appliances, such as toasters and hair dryers, and automotive parts, such as brakes and clutches.

In the Greater Boston Area, we have historic homes and buildings that were constructed during this time, so it is important to test for asbestos.

Approximately 90,000 people die from asbestos-related diseases globally each year

An estimated 125 million people worldwide remain at risk of occupational exposure to asbestos

Our process for asbestos testing

Samples are taken from various materials (such as insulation and ceiling tiles) within your home or business

The samples are then sent to an asbestos lab for analysis

The lab will then report back to you with the results

If asbestos is found, a professional company can remove it safely

If asbestos is present, it means that you should have your building checked by an expert so that proper removal protocols can be put in place before any issues arise from exposure—or worse yet, a fire occurs because of neglected maintenance.

We just had our duct work cleaned. This is a professional business from start to finish. There were no surprises and the service was as promised. The on site crew, Cory and Xavier, we’re excellent, friendly and professional. They explained everything they were doing and even showed us some pictures of the “junk” in the ducts. They were efficient with their time, and cleaned up on the way out the door. I would definitely use them again and highly recommend.

While having our central AC replaced we found there was a leak that had likely been going on for months creating a significant amount of water damage & mold in the walls. Joel & Angel came in, removed all of the wet & moldy surfaces, and treated the areas thoroughly with safe treatments. They were kind, professional, on time, respectful. Everyone I have dealt with from the office staff to the technicians have been nothing short of wonderful to work with! I would highly recommend choosing them!!
