These regulations have greatly limited the occurrence of asbestos in new construction or recent remodeling projects. However a large number of homes in the Seattle area were built before these modern regulations were enacted. To address these concerns, we provide expert asbestos inspections for residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Our inspectors are certified Asbestos Building Inspectors.
Asbestos is defined as a set of six silicate minerals commonly used in commercial applications. The primary defining feature of these minerals is their long, thin fibrous structure. This unique profile, while helpful for myriad commercial uses, can create problems when exposed to the human respiratory system. Because of this, asbestos is considered a dangerous carcinogen and its use is subject to numerous regulations.
