Free Asbestos Inspection
by: Mold Busters • 14
This free asbestos inspection app, offered by Mold Busters, can help anyone who's concerned about the presence of hazardous asbestos in his or her home. Regardless of the condition of your home, there could be asbestos and it could be jeopardizing your health. It's especially likely that homes built before the 1980s contain asbestos.
The way this app works is simple: take a picture of the material that you suspect is asbestos and send it to us. One of our knowledgeable and experienced asbestos inspectors will promptly examine your photo and get back to you with our professional recommendation.
CAUTION: Never touch the material you're snapping a photo of, even if you're trying to get a better view and improve the shot. If you touch the material and it happens to be asbestos, you could disturb the asbestos fibres, releasing them into the air that you, and anyone under the same roof, inhales.
Asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral with several unique properties, was used extensively in construction materials and insulation before the 1980s for its resistance to high temperatures, chemical attacks and wear. However, shortly after, it became known that being exposed to or inhaling asbestos fibres could lead to serious respiratory disease and even cancer.
Asbestos could be anywhere—in homes, offices, schools and commercial buildings. It's also found in several common household products and places, including exterior siding; caulking and putty; latex paints; ironing boards; hair dryers; and vinyl flooring.
It's our priority at Mold Busters to make sure the air you breathe is free of mold and other air pollutants. This app is convenient and useful, helping you achieve or maintain a healthy home. Don't take any chances! Get your free asbestos inspection today!
