Some libraries and court buildings had asbestos-containing materials in them and some did not. Only an inspection by trained and qualified specialists can determine whether it is present in a specific building.

How to Understand Asbestos Testing?

Until the 1970s, there were few government regulations when it came to asbestos testing or the use of asbestos in building materials. This was the case even though the effects of asbestos on health had been known by scientists since the early part of the century. Because of this negligence, workers in shipyards and constructions sites across the country were exposed to asbestos on a daily basis, many of them growing ill in the years to come. Unfortunately, the chain of sickness doesn’t end there. Asbestos can still be found in many older buildings and homes. If you want to ensure the health of yourself and your family, asbestos testing is vital. For whatever else might be said about it, no one can say that asbestos doesn’t make a great material for building. Because of its strength and resistance to heat, it was used extensively in building projects for many years. Of course, while its capabilities might have been remarkable, it is its unfortunate tendency to cause real health damage that makes it such a danger. Asbestos has been linked to many life threatening diseases including asbestosis, which is a lung disease akin to emphysema. The fibers are inhaled and they cause quite a lot of damage to the inner organs, creating diseases that sometimes take years to manifest. Mesothilioma is a form of cancer that has little attributable cause other than asbestos exposure. Many shipbuilders have filed suit against the government after developing mesothilioma later in life. While asbestos posed the most harm to workers prior to the 1970s, buildings and homes that still have asbestos in the ceilings and walls can still pose a threat to the residents and employees that live and work there. That is why asbestos testing is so important to do before moving into a new home or moving into a new office building. If the building was built prior to the government regulations, there is a good chance that asbestos was used in the construction.
