What To Do If You Think You Have Asbestos in Your Home

Asbestos can’t typically be found solely through a visual inspection. If you suspect asbestos in your home, it’s best to have a professional take samples. You should steer clear from doing this part yourself to avoid a potentially deadly exposure.

The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act of 1986 (AHERA) mandated that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop an accreditation program to increase and standardize requirements for labs testing for analysis of asbestos samples. Those labs are licensed under the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP).
