What is Asbestos?

From Wikipedia: “Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous silicate mineral. There are six types, all of which are composed of long and thin fibrous crystals, each fibre being composed of many microscopic “fibrils” that can be released into the atmosphere by abrasion and other processes. Inhalation of asbestos fibres can lead to various dangerous lung conditions, including mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer, so it is now notorious as a serious health and safety hazard.”

How do you know if a building contains Asbestos?

The only way to know if a building contains Asbestos is to have Asbestos testing done. At SAT Consulting & Construction we have certified Asbestos testers who can test all manner of materials – like drywall, paint, flooring, or stucco. Once a sample has been collected, tests are run and you receive a report with details on the results.
