Asbestos Testing & Inspection in New Jersey

Asbestos Removal Process

Find Out If Your Property Has Asbestos

If your New Jersey home or business was constructed in the 1950s or earlier, it likely contains asbestos in its construction materials – and that can pose significant health risks.

Our asbestos testing services help property owners safely detect and eliminate contaminated materials, decreasing the risk of dangerous exposure and maintaining compliance with the latest asbestos regulations.

Why You Should Inspect for Asbestos

You can’t address health hazards if you don’t know they’re there.
Reach out to our team for professional and expedient asbestos inspection, testing, and removal.

Protect Human Health

The most important reason to inspect for asbestos is to safeguard human health. Exposure to asbestos fibers can lead to serious respiratory diseases, including lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Occupational Safety

Business owners have a legal obligation to provide a safe working environment for their employees. Asbestos testing ensures workplaces are free from potentially dangerous materials.

Maintain Legal Compliance

Asbestos inspections help maintain compliance with legal regulations and requirements. Many jurisdictions mandate asbestos testing, especially before renovations or demolition projects.

Insurance Coverage

Some policies require asbestos testing as part of risk assessment and coverage eligibility. We help property owners potentially lower their premiums by mitigating the risk of asbestos-related claims.

Prepare for a Property Sale

Before selling your New Jersey property, you may need to schedule an asbestos inspection. This allows you to address any issues beforehand, preventing delays during the sales process.

Preventative Maintenance

Identifying and addressing asbestos-containing materials early can prevent potential damage or deterioration, reducing the need for costly repairs or remediation in the future.

Lab Testing to Identify Asbestos

We’re not interested in one-size-fits-all treatments. During our asbestos inspections, we collect samples and have them tested by professional laboratories. This decreases the risk of misidentifying or mistreating contaminants, ensuring we know exactly how to tackle your asbestos problem.
